Lainey Wilson Wins Best Country Album

Lainey Wilson’s boyfriend, Devlin “Duck” Hodges, is thrilled she just won her first Grammy!

In case you missed it, Wilson took home the award for Best Country Album at the 2024 Grammy Awards on Sunday night (February 4). She won for Bell Bottom Country, her hit album which contains tracks such as “Watermelon Moonshine,” “Heart Like a Truck,” and “Wildflowers and Wild Horses.”

Wilson delivered a grateful acceptance speech after winning the award. She linked her musical journey back to her experience growing up as a farmer’s daughter.

It’s about getting up every single day and planting those seeds and watering them and watching them grow,” she said. “And sometimes when you find the right farming community, you can have a harvest of a lifetime and I truly believe that. I think that’s exactly what this is tonight.”

Wilson shared her continued appreciation in a social media post later that evening. She said:

Best Country Album. As someone whose whole career is based off of putting my feelings into words, it’s few and far between that I’m left speechless. All I can say right now is thank you, thank you, thank you.
