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

Ryan Bingham won best song written for motion picture, television or other visual media, for "The Weary Kind" from the 2010 film "Crazy Heart."

RYAN BINGHAM: "It all seemed like it happened so fast, a surreal experience. You spend so many nights on the road, blowing out the tires in the van, playing all those gigs and then you wind up on that stage. I was overwhelmed, but I felt proud, like I had accomplished something. It was a lot less stressful than the Oscars, where I had to go up and give a speech. After winning the Oscar, I came offstage and there were all these photographers taking my picture, and Cher and Christina Aguilera come up and I'm standing between them wondering, 'Where am I?'"
