Kacey Musgraves became the first country artist since Taylor Swift to take home the Grammy for album of the year.

According to Popsugar, Musgraves swept up wins for all four of the categories she was nominated in. Her wins included the top award for album of the year, which marked the first time a country artist had won the award since Taylor Swift’s Fearless in 2010.

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.

Congratulations to Kacey Musgraves on her successful night!
