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.

GRAMMY Rewind: Watch Will Smith Dedicate His 1999 Best Rap Solo Performance GRAMMY To His Son

In his acceptance speech, he offers thanks to his family and "the jiggiest wife in the world, Jada Pinkett Smith"

GRAMMYs/Sep 25, 2020 - 11:17 pm

Today, Sept. 25, we celebrate the birthday of the coolest dad—who else? Will Smith! For the latest episode of GRAMMY Rewind, we revisit the Fresh Prince's 1999 GRAMMY win for Best Rap Solo Performance for "Gettin' Jiggy Wit It."

In the below video, watch rappers Missy Elliott—donning white leather—and Foxy Brown present the GRAMMY to a stoked Smith, who also opted for an all-leather look. In his acceptance speech, he offers thanks to his family and "the jiggiest wife in the world, Jada Pinkett Smith." He dedicates the award to his eldest son, Trey Smith, joking that Trey's teacher said he (then just six years old) could improve his rhyming skills.

The "Está Rico" rapper has won four GRAMMYs to date, earning his first back in 1989 GRAMMYs for "Parents Just Don't Understand," when he was 20 years old.

GRAMMY Rewind: Watch Santana & Rob Thomas Self-Assuredly Win Record Of The Year For "Smooth" In 2000

In the newest episode of GRAMMY Rewind, watch Santana and Rob Thomas win Record Of The Year at the 42nd GRAMMY Awards for "Smooth," the unlikely smash-hit pairing of the classic rock legend and Matchbox Twenty leader

GRAMMYs/Jul 30, 2021 - 06:56 pm

By all accounts, Santana's and Rob Thomas' 1999 megahit "Smooth" almost didn't happen. In its embryonic stages, Carlos Santana was skeptical of the tune; the AM-radio effect on Thomas's voice alone engendered its own smattering of arguments.

But in a quintessential lesson about why you should never, ever give up, "Smooth" became the second-biggest single of all time, second only to Chubby Checker's "The Twist." It also led to the 2000 GRAMMY Awards, where the unlikely pair won the GRAMMY for Record Of The Year.

In the newest episode of GRAMMY Rewind, revisit the moment 21 years ago when an unlikely gambit paid off in dividends, putting a feather in the cap of Matchbox Twenty's leader and landing a classic rocker back on the airwaves.

GRAMMY Rewind: Watch Celine Dion Win Record Of The Year For "My Heart Will Go On"

Two decades before Billie Eilish's 2020 win, Celine Dion stepped onto the GRAMMY stage to take home Record Of The Year for her smash hit "My Heart Will Go On"

GRAMMYs/Feb 22, 2020 - 04:06 am

Long before Billie Eilish's 2020 Record Of The Year win, French-Canadian pop sensation Celine Dion stepped onto the GRAMMY stage to take home Record Of The Year for her smash hit "My Heart Will Go On."

It was 1999: two years after Dion's ballad was prominently featured in James Cameron's star-crossed epic "Titanic," a song placement that forever impacted the way music was used in film. The Canadian vocal powerhouse was up against the Goo Goo Dolls ("Iris"), Monica and Brandy ("The Boy Is Mine"), Madonna ("Ray Of Light") and Shania Twain ("You're Still The One").  

During her acceptance speech, it was only fitting that Dion, who took home the golden gramophone along with Walter Afanasieff, Simon Franglen and James Horner, thank the person who made her own heart, well, go on.

Watch the GRAMMY Rewind video above to hear Dion's speech, which thanked her late husband and manager, René Angélil.
