Willie Nelson wins grammy for Billy Joe Shaver’s, “Live Forever”


Willie Nelson just won his 11th Grammy. The icon took country music’s first award at the 2023 Grammys, in a pre-show ceremony held Sunday afternoon.

The 89-year-old Nelson was not in attendance to accept the award. He was nominated alongside Kelsea Ballerini’s “Heartfirst,” Zach Bryan’s “Something in the Orange,” Miranda Lambert’s’s “In His Arms” and Maren Morris’ “Circles Around This Town.”

Nelson’s “Live Forever” is a cover of Billy Joe Shaver’s song, and it was included on the 12-track tribute album, Live Forever: A Tribute to Billy Joe Shaver, released in November 2022. The album also included tracks recorded by Margo Price, Nathaniel Rateliff, Edie Brickell, Steve Earle and more. Nelson also finds himself nominated for Best Country Album for A Beautiful Time at the Grammys.
