Musgraves continued to mirror Swift, by winning the four same categories that Swift was nominated for in 2010. Nine years ago, Swift won album of the year, best country album, and best country song and female country vocal performance. This year, Musgraves won the four same Grammy’s, including album of the year for Golden Hour.
