The Highwomen creators won the 2021 Grammy for Best Country Song for “Crowded Table.”
A Big Win For The Highwomen
The songwriters behind “Crowded Table” took home this 2021 Grammy award. Brandi Carlile, Natalie Hemby, and Lori McKenna co-wrote the song together. Carlile accepted the award via Zoom call and was visibly in shock.
“I am in complete shock,” she smiled. “I am so thrilled! First and foremost, Lori McKenna and Natalie Hemby, my girls. Thank you so much for inviting me on your beautiful song. And to The Highwomen: Amanda Shires, Maren Morris, Sheryl Crow, Yola, and of course, Dave Cobb.”
“We just wanted to see women in country music embraced, platformed and singing. We’re seeing that more and more. What a complete and astounding honor,” she concluded.
Additionally, Carlile will be performing a tribute to John Prine at this year’s Grammy show. She was also nominated for Best Song For Visual Media for “Carried Me With You” from Onward.
