Carrie and ZBB each took home a gramophone during the telecast, and Taylor Swift and first-time winners Little Big Town snagged theirs during a pre-telecast ceremony.
While Zac Brown Band won “Best Country Album” for Uncaged, Carrie took home Grammys in both the “Best Country Song” and “Best Country Solo Performance” categories for “Blown Away.”
“Country music has always been so good to me,” Carrie said while accepting her sixth overall Grammy, “and I thank the good Lord that I’m a part of such a wonderful, talented, amazing family.”
Hunter Hayes introduced Carrie’s show-stopping performance of her hits “Blown Away” and “Two Black Cadillacs.”
Taylor Swift opened the show with “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” and Dierks Bentley and Miranda Lambert sung a mash-up of their songs “Over You” and “Home.”
ZBB also took part in a moving tribute to the late Levon Helm.
Tim McGraw, Faith Hill and Keith Urban also presented awards.
