Carrie Underwood Shows Emotions Accepting Best Country Solo Performance Award at the 2013 Grammys
Carrie Underwood won her seventh lifetime Grammy Award on Sunday night (Feb. 10), picking up her second of 2013 for her hit song ‘Blown Away.’ The singer fought back tears thanking her fans and family as she hoisted the award for Best Country Solo Performance.
Earlier, ‘Blown Away’ won a Best Country Song Grammy for songwriters Chris Tompkins and Josh Kear, but this was the first time that the singer was able to express her thanks on stage. Her voice quivered as she thanked God, fans and especially husband Mike Fisher for being so good to her. The title track from her most recent album reached No. 1 in November of 2012.
Also nominated in the Best Country Solo Performance category was ‘Springsteen’ by Eric Church, ‘Over’ by Blake Shelton, ‘Wanted’ by Hunter Hayes, ‘Cost of Livin” by Ronnie Dunn and ‘Home’ by Dierks Bentley. The last time Underwood won multiple Grammys was in 2007, when she won for Best New Artist and Best Female Country Vocal Performance.
