Tanya Tucker was a big winner at the 2020 Grammy Awards. The country legend took home Grammy awards for Best Country Song (for "Bring My Flowers Now") and Best Country Album (for While I'm Livin').

After earning 14 nominations over the years, Tucker won her first ever Grammy with her Best Country Song nod.

"No matter how young or old you are, never stop following your dreams," Tucker said in her acceptance speech.

Brandi Carlile, who produced Tucker's album While I'm Livin' with Shooter Jennings, used her acceptance speech to applaud Tucker.

"This is really Tanya's moment and this is her song and the song is the story of her life," Carlile said. "It's one of the great honors of my life to stand up here next to you, Tanya, while you get your first Grammy at 61 years old. A woman in country music leading the way!"
