Tanya Tucker takes home Grammy Awards for Best Country Song and Best Country Album

Some 47 years after her first nomination, Tanya Tucker has finally won a Grammy Award as she took home both Best Country Song and Best Country Album.
Tucker’s luck with the Grammys has largely been unfortunate, with the iconic country artist having been nominated 10 times without success over the years, but that has now changed after her first album in 17 years with ‘While I’m Livin” wowed those in charge.
It was a case of ‘like London buses’ for Tucker as the record won ‘Best Country Album’, while Bring My Flowers Now – the fourth single from the record – won Best Country Song, which she performed on the night.
It was also a successful evening for Dan + Shay, who won an award for the second year running. Last year, they won Best Country Duo/Group Performance for Tequila and this year they won the same award for Speechless.
Finally in the country category, Willie Nelson took home another Grammy to take his total into double figures, with the legendary outlaw claiming Best Country Solo Performance for Ride Me Back Home. 
Elsewhere, Old Town Road by Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus won Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, but lost out to bad guy by Billie Eilish for Record of the Year – Eilish herself setting new records as the 18-year-old won five Grammys, including Best New Artist, Album of the Year and Song of the Year.
Tanya Tucker will also be a Main Stage act at C2C 2020 this year, with the artist performing in Glasgow on the Friday, Dublin on the Saturday and finally London on the Sunday.
Tickets are still on sale for C2C and they can be purchased here.
