The 62nd Annual Grammy Awards haven’t official begun yet and Tanya Tucker is already a winner. At the age of 61, this is Tanya first nomination and win in 16 years. Today she takes home the award for Best Country Song for “Bring My Flowers Now” and Best Country Album for “While I’m Livin.” Accepting her award Tanya praises Brandi Carlile, whom she recorded the record with saying “I met Brandi, and I’ve never met such a talented person in my life. And we did this record together. I’m so honored there’s no word to express how I feel right now.” With Tanya providing that dreams can be achieved at any age, Brandi commented “This is really Tanya’s moment, and this is her song and this song is the story of her life. At 61 years old, it’s a woman in country music leading the way.”
