And the winner is…

In a category loaded exclusively with female artists (and nearly exclusively produced by the great Jay Joyce), Miranda Lambert’s Wildcard has been declared the Best Country Album at the 2021 Annual Grammy Awards.

Beating out Ashley McBryde, Brandy Clark, Little Big Town and Ingrid Andress, the win gives Miranda three career Grammy wins.

“Thank you all so, so much… We are such a family in country music, so I feel like holding this right now, I’m holding it for all of us, especially us girls.”
