Before a new crop of GRAMMYs are handed out, hear from past winners about what it's like to receive the coveted honor.

Kentucky HeadHunters won the GRAMMY for best country performance by a duo or group with vocal for its 1989 album, "Pickin' On Nashville."

KENTUCKY HEADHUNTERS' RICHARD YOUNG: “The GRAMMY Awards will always be the top-hat daddy for the Kentucky HeadHunters. Meeting 'Cowboy' Roy Rogers and rock'n'roll piano man Johnnie Johnson, both of whom we later recorded with, was the naz. Because we were so influenced by Cream, presenting the album of the year award [with Lisa Stansfield] for Eric Clapton's 'Journeyman' is a great memory. I also remember meeting David Crosby. He said, 'Wow, they'll let anyone in the Plaza Hotel!' The whole night is an unforgettable dream for us Kentucky boys.”
