GRAMMY Rewind: Miranda Lambert Wins A GRAMMY For Best Country Album In 2015 And Thanks Everyone Who Helped "Make It Happen"

As Miranda Lambert took the stage to accept her Best Country Album trophy 'Platinum,' she made sure to honor the producers, co-writers and musicians who brought the album to life.

GRAMMYs/Aug 12, 2022 - 05:01 pm

Before the 57th GRAMMYs took place in February 2015, Miranda Lambert had already received many GRAMMY nominations — and in 2011, she even won Best Country Vocal Performance for her song "The House That Built Me."

However, she'd never won Best Country Album — though her projects Four the Record and Revolution had both scored nominations — until 2015, when she earned the trophy for her fifth studio album, Platinum

In this episode of GRAMMY Rewind, take a look back at Lambert's heartfelt acceptance speech as she accepted her award. As soon as she took the stage, she made sure to voice some recognition for her fellow nominees — Dierks Bentley, Eric Church, Lee Ann Womack and Brandy Clark — who were all watching from the audience.

"I love every album in this category. I'm so thankful for this," Lambert said as she held her GRAMMY. "I poured my heart and soul into this record."

Many supporters helped propel Lambert on toward the making of her Platinum album — her then-husband Blake Shelton was lovingly looking on from his seat in the audience, for one — and she made a point of thanking her collaborators.

"Frank Liddell, Chuck Ainlay and Glenn Worf are amazing producers," she continued. "And all the musicians who played on this, and all the writers, and all the people that make it happen and get it to the people, get it to the fans. Thank you so much for this amazing night."

Lambert won her second Best Country Album GRAMMY in 2021, for her 2019 LP Wildcard. To date, Miranda Lambert has won 3 GRAMMYs and has received 23 GRAMMY nominations overall.

As Doja Cat put it herself, the 2022 GRAMMYs were a "big deal" for her and SZA.

Doja Cat walked in with eight nominations, while SZA entered the ceremony with five. Three of those respective nods were for their 2021 smash "Kiss Me More," which ultimately helped the superstars win their first GRAMMYs.

In this episode of GRAMMY Rewind, revisit the night SZA and Doja Cat accepted the golden gramophone for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance — a milestone moment that Doja Cat almost missed.

"Listen. I have never taken such a fast piss in my whole life," Doja Cat quipped after beelining to the stage. "Thank you to everybody — my family, my team. I wouldn't be here without you, and I wouldn't be here without my fans."

Before passing the mic to SZA, Doja also gave a message of appreciation to the "Kill Bill" singer: "You are everything to me. You are incredible. You are the epitome of talent. You're a lyricist. You're everything."

SZA began listing her praises for her mother, God, her supporters, and, of course, Doja Cat. "I love you! Thank you, Doja. I'm glad you made it back in time!" she teased.

"I like to downplay a lot of s— but this is a big deal," Doja tearfully concluded. "Thank you, everybody."

GRAMMY Rewind: Watch Beyoncé's Heartfelt Speech For Her Record-Breaking Win In 2023

Relive the night Beyoncé received a gramophone for Best Dance/Electronic Album for 'RENAISSANCE' at the 2023 GRAMMYS — the award that made her the most decorated musician in GRAMMY history.

GRAMMYs/Feb 2, 2024 - 05:12 pm

Six years after her last solo studio album, Beyoncé returned to the music industry with a bang thanks to RENAISSANCE. In homage to her late Uncle Johnny, she created a work of art inspired by the sounds of disco and house that wasn't just culturally impactful — it was history-making.

At the 2023 GRAMMYs, RENAISSANCE won Best Dance/Electronic Album. Marking Beyoncé's 32nd golden gramophone, the win gave the superstar the record for most gramophones won by an individual act.

In this episode of GRAMMY Rewind, revisit the historic moment Queen Bey took the stage to accept her record-breaking GRAMMY at the 65th Annual GRAMMY Awards.

"Thank you so much. I'm trying not to be too emotional," Beyoncé said at the start of her acceptance speech. "I'm just trying to receive this night."

With a deep breath, she began to list her praises that included God, her family, and the Recording Academy for their continued support throughout her career. 

"I'd like to thank my Uncle Johnny, who is not here, but he's here in spirit," Beyoncé proclaimed. "I'd like to thank the queer community for your love and inventing this genre."

GRAMMY Rewind: Dr. Dre Takes Home The Inaugural Global Impact Award, Named In His Honor, In 2023

In homage to Dr. Dre's trailblazing achievements in music, the Recording Academy presented the first-ever Dr. Dre Global Impact Award at the 2023 GRAMMY Awards ceremony — to the rapper himself.

GRAMMYs/Jan 26, 2024 - 04:07 am

Dr. Dre has proven that an artist's job can go far beyond writing lyrics and performing at venues. In his nearly 40-year career, he has founded his own record label, Aftermath Entertainment, co-founded Beats Electronics, endowed the USC Jimmy Iovine and Andrew Young Academy, and much more.

To celebrate his massive achievements, the Recording Academy and Black Music Collective created the Global Impact Award, named in his honor. Relive the moment Dr. Dre accepted the inaugural gramophone in this episode of GRAMMY Rewind.

"I know everybody in here probably knows this already, but this is the 50th anniversary of hip-hop," Dr. Dre said at the beginning of his speech. "Make some noise for hip-hop!"

In his eyes, one of the most rewarding parts of his work is the collaboration. "Assembling a team with talented artists, engineers, and musicians with gifts different from mine and who shine in ways that I don't have been both inspiring and crucial to my success," he recalled. 

"I'm extremely grateful to all of those who have comprised that team over the years, and I would not be here accepting this award without their contribution."

Before heading off the stage, Dr. Dre gave one encouraging message to the next wave of music's changemakers: "What I love about this award is that it uses my name to inspire the next generation of producers, artists, and entrepreneurs to reach for their greatness and demand that from everybody around you. Never compromise your vision. Pursue quality over quantity. And remember everything is important."
