Country legends Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, and Tanya Tucker have added awards to their mantle with Grammy wins, joining Dan + Shay among the night’s winners. Nelson has now won 10 Grammy Awards, while his son, Lukas Nelson, earned one on the same night for his work on the soundtrack to A Star Is Born.
In addition, Parton has collected a career nine Grammys. Tucker is taking home her first-ever Grammy awards this year. While those wins were announced prior to the telecast (with Nelson and Parton not attending the ceremony), Dan + Shay accepted their Grammy award from presenters Bebe Rexha and Shania Twain live on CBS.
