And we have another winner!
The music industry’s hottest stars gathered tonight at the Staples Center in Los Angeles for the 62nd annual Grammy Awards, and “Old Town Road” by Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus took home the highly coveted award for Best Music Video.
The video was up against “We’ve Got to Try” by The Chemical Brothers, “This Land” by Gary Clark Jr., “Cellophane” by FKA twigs and “Glad He’s Gone” by Tove Lo.
