Broken Bow Records/BMG Nashville’s Lainey Wilson reached a new pinnacle in her record breaking career on Sunday, 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.”
