Kentucky native Sturgill Simpson won the Grammy Award for Best Country Album for his critically acclaimed “A Sailor’s Guide to Earth.”  The award was presented during the pre-telecast of the awards.  Below is Sturgill Simpson’s acceptance speech:

“Like six years ago, I was in Utah working on the railroad, writing songs at night.  My wife made me quit that job and move to Nashville, so thanks babe. My son was born; I spent that spent first year on the road, missing them, and if it wasn’t for them I wouldn’t have written this album, so I have to thank them.  And I guess the revolution won’t be televised.  Thank you.”
