Chris Stapleton, Brothers Osborne and Carrie Underwood Win At GRAMMY Awards

Chris Stapleton, Brothers Osborne and Carrie Underwood also performed on the night.

Chris Stapleton took home three awards at the 2022 GRAMMY Awards on Sunday, April 3, including ‘Best Country Album’ for Starting Over, ‘Best Country Song’ for Cold and ‘Best Country Solo Performance’ for You Should Probably Leave — both songs from Starting Over.

During his acceptance speech for ‘Best Country Album’, Stapleton spoke about the sacrifices everyone in the room had made chasing their musical career. He said, “Hopefully we’re all doing it so it would make the world a better place and the people that live in it will love each other and have a good time together and come together.”


Carrie Underwood was awarded Best Roots Gospel Album' for My Savior, while Brothers Osborne won the GRAMMY Award for ‘Best Country Duo/Group Performance’ for Younger Me. 

The win took place a little over a year after lead singer, TJ Osborne came out as the first publicly gay man signed to a major country music record label in 2021, and Younger Me has gone on to become an anthem for self-acceptance, no matter who you are.

Accepting the award, Osborne said, “For those of you who do not know, [Younger Me] was written really in response to me coming out. I never thought I would be able to do music professionally because of my sexuality, and I certainly never thought it would be here on this stage accepting a GRAMMY, after having done something, I felt like was going to be life changing, potentially in a very negative way. And here I am tonight, not only accepting this GRAMMY award with my brother [John Osborne] who I love so much, but I’m here with a man who I love and who loves me back. I don’t know what I did to be so lucky.

Brothers Osborne later shared on Instagram, “It's hard to find the words to say about this. We won our first GRAMMY today... It took years of grinding and hard work. We have so many people to thank but if there are two people that deserve notoriety it's our younger selves. Little TJ and John stuck it out as awkward teenagers and proved what they were certain would happened and what their older selves probably doubted. We will never forget this day for as long as we live.”

Performance wise, Stapleton delivered a jaw dropping performance of Cold, Underwood got to make the performance debut of her new single, Ghost Story, and Brothers Osborne closed the show with a captivating non-televised performance of Dead Man’s Curve.

After his performance, Stapleton saw a 350% increase in global Spotify streams. The jump in streams was the third largest out of any of the GRAMMY performers, only behind Jon Batiste who saw an 2900% jump for his song Freedom, then Brandi Carlile, who drew a standing ovation on the night for her performance of her hit song, Right on Time.

Hosted by The Daily Show’s Trevor Noah, the GRAMMY Awards 2022 ceremony was held, for the first time, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The event came after a delay of three months due to the surge in the COVID-19 variant Omicron.
