Brandi Carlile Performs An Electrifying Version Of "Broken Horses" At The 2023 GRAMMYs

Brandi Carlile is up for seven golden gramophones at the 2023 GRAMMYs, including Album Of The Year and Best Americana Album for 'In These Silent Days.'

GRAMMYs/Feb 6, 2023 - 01:31 am

Brandi Carlile came raring onto the stage at the 2023 GRAMMY Awards with a stirring performance of her twice-nominated single "Broken Horses."

Adorably introduced by her wife Catherine Shepherd and their two daughters Evangeline and Elijah, Carlile proved that wild horses know not only how to run, but how to rock out as well as she wailed, “Tethered in wide open spaces/ And fields that lead for miles/ Right into the barrel of a gun” with support from a high-octane band and pair of backing vocalists.

"Broken Horses" was originally released as the second single off Carlile’s 2021 album In These Silent Days — and even before the telecast had begun, had earned the golden gramophones for both Best Rock Song and Best Rock Performance. Carlile took home the award for Best Americana Album as well.

The troubadour was also up for four other awards during the show, including Album Of The Year for In These Silent Days, and Record Of The Year, Best Americana Performance and Best American Roots Song for "You And Me On The Rock" featuring Lucius. With seven total GRAMMY nominations, the singer-songwriter tied Adele for the third-most number of nominations this year, only behind Beyoncé’s nine and Kendrick Lamar’s eight.

Since dropping In These Silent Days (Carlile's seventh studio album) in October 2021, she has re-issued the record with a bonus disc titled In the Canyon Haze. The album features acoustic recordings of the LP’s 10 tracks as well as a cover of David Bowie’s classic "Space Oddity."
