There's a lot of people to be thankful for ... the fans who have been coming out and supporting us: you guys are the reason we get to do what we do. My family, my amazing, perfect husband. Glory to God! Thank you so much."
Dierks Bentley, Eric Church, Ronnie Dunn, Blake Shelton and Carrie's Blown Away tourmate Hunter Hayes were also up for the award. This is the Oklahoma native's sixth Grammy.
Carrie's performance of "Blown Away" on the live Grammys broadcast was a show-stopper. In addition to her flawless vocals, her dress acted as somewhat of a movie screen, as whimsical images were projected on the blue ball gown. Watch a video on her magical performance below.
