Lainey Wilson won her first-ever gramophone in the category of Best Country Album on February 4, 2024, Sunday, at the 66th Annual Grammy Awards.

As reported by PEOPLE, Wilson received the honor for her album Bell Bottom Country, and began her award acceptance speech saying, "This is absolutely wild, y'all. This is my very first Grammy."

The Watermelon Moonshine hit-maker expressed her gratitude to the collaborators, co-writers and "anybody who had anything to do with this record," stating that "it has truly changed my life."


"I am from a farming community in northeast Louisiana, a little town of 200 people, and 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're farmers too, but they're story farmers," Wilson further stated.

The 31-year-old singer and songwriter continued, "And 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, and I truly believe that and I think that's exactly what this is tonight."


"God bless every single one of y'all. Thank you, Jesus. Thank you so much to the Recording Academy, and thank you to my fans. I love y'all so much," she concluded.

In the category of Best Country Album, Wilson competed against Kelsea Ballerini’s album, Rolling Up the Welcome Mat, Tyler Childers’ album, Rustin' In the Rain, Brothers Osborne and Zach Bryan for their self-titled albums respectively.

Lainey Wilson also had the privilege to take home the huge award of entertainer of the year, at the 57th annual CMA Awards, last November.
