BMG Publishing Congratulates Dan Wilson & Chris Stapleton on Earning the Best Country Song GRAMMY® for “White Horse”
Broken Bow Records/BMG Nashville‘s Lainey Wilson reached a new pinnacle in her record breaking career when she was awarded the Best Country Album GRAMMY® for Bell Bottom Country. The album, which features #1 hits “Heart Like a Truck” and “Watermelon Moonshine” alongside her current single “Wildflowers and Wild Horses”, has served to be a truly life-changing record for the Louisiana native as it is the reigning Album of the Year for both the Academy of Country Music (ACM) & Country Music Association (CMA) Awards.
On the CBS televised broadcast, an emotional Lainey Wilson fought off tears as she accepted stating: “This is absolutely wild y’all. This is my very first GRAMMYS®. Thank you so much for my collaborators: Jay Joyce, Jason [Hall], the cowriters, musicians, anybody who had anything to do with this record. It has truly changed my life. I am from a farming community in NE Louisiana. A little town of 200 people. I’m a fifth-generation farmer’s daughter and I would consider myself a farmer, too. And everybody that I surround myself with, I think they are farmers, too. They’re story farmers. It’s about getting up every single day and planting those seeds and watering them and watching them grow. And sometimes, when you find the right farming community, you can have a harvest of a lifetime. I truly believe that. I think that is exactly what this is tonight. God bless every single one of y’all. Thank you Jesus. Thank you so much to the Recording Academy. Thank you to my fans. I love y’all so much.”
Coming off of a monumental 2023, Lainey won five CMA Awards including the top honor of “Entertainer of the Year”, four ACM Awards, two CMT Music Awards, three People’s Choice Country Awards, completed a 28-date sold-out headlining tour, and made her Red Rocks Amphitheatre and Lollapalooza debut. Wilson was also honored as Billboard Women in Music’s 2023 “Rulebreaker”. Fans can catch Lainey on the road this year as she embarks on the highly anticipated “Country’s Cool Again” and “Lainey Wilson: LIVE” tours in 2024.
BMG Publishing was also proud to see writer Dan Wilson and co-writer Chris Stapleton land an industry coveted GRAMMY® for Best Country Song for “White Horse.”
