Musgraves is the sole female artist in the album of the year category at the ACM Awards.
Following her historic win, Musgraves sat for an interview with CBS This Morning's Gayle King, chatting about her genre-bending music and how she has stayed true to herself despite her superstar success.
There's a new queen in country music.
Upon coming on the stage, Metz started singing her emotional number and showed her talent performing on "I'm Standing With You", a single from the soundtrack of her upcoming faith-based drama, Breakthrough.
Trump retreats from Mexico border closing, threatens auto tariffs instead
Construction for that small chunk of fencing cost about $18 million, began in February 2018 and was completed in October. Trump is also threatening tariffs if Mexico doesn't halt the flow of illegal drugs across the border.
Ashley McBryde, who won new female artist of the year, also was memorable: almost in tears, she strummed her guitar and beautifully sang "Girl Goin' Nowhere".
That's because no women are nominated for the show's top award Sunday. "Sometimes it wanders places that I've never been before, and I don't expect people will support it necessarily, so when it happens like that, when I get to make a record like [2018's] Grafitti U. and they get support the way that they have, it's an incredible feeling for any artist". No women were nominated for songwriter of the year.
Musgraves' critically acclaimed "Golden Hour" won album of the year and best country album at the Grammys in February. Showing support and unity for each other celebrities such as Lauren Alaina and Mickey Guyton as well as Madison Marlow and Taylor Dye of Maddie & Tae donned royal-blue ensembles. It was obvious by her performance as Kate that Metz could sing, but she wowed viewers with her musical talent at the ACM's. Underwood, Maren Morris, Kelly Clarkson, Miranda Lambert, Ashley McBryde and McEntire will sing onstage. "This is one of the proudest nights of my life".
"HAHAHAHAHA MIRANDA LAMBERT SINGING "I got the hell out of Oklahoma" AT THE ACMS IS A MOOD", wrote another.
