The “High Horse” songstress, 30, stole the show with a breathtaking performance of her hit tune “Rainbow,” but it was also her multiple wins that had fans going wild. The country singer-songwriter came out on top in the Album of the Year and Best Country Album categories for Golden Hour, as well as Best Country Song for “Space Cowboy,” and Best Country Solo Performance for “Butterflies.”
Less than a decade prior, Swift, now 29, walked away with the same four awards: two for her second studio album, Fearless, and Best Female Country Vocal Performance and Best Country Song for “White Horse.” Twitter users couldn’t help but gush over both of the ladies on Sunday.
“I think the reason I like Kacey Musgraves so much is because her music is what I would’ve liked Taylor Swift’s to evolve into,” one commenter wrote with a nod to the “Delicate” songstress’ music turning more into the pop genre. Another noted: “Kacey Musgraves’ ‘Golden Hour’ is the first country album to win the prestigious Album Of The Year award since Taylor Swift’s ‘Fearless’ in 2010. Both ladies also won the SAME 4 awards each.”
Swift, for her part, was also up for a Grammy Award on Sunday night for Pop Vocal Album for Reputation, but lost to Ariana Grande, who won for her fourth album, Sweetener. The “Look What You Made Me Do” singer wasn’t in attendance at the Staples Center in Los Angeles as she was across the pond celebrating at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts Awards in London with her boyfriend, Joe Alwyn.
“AHHHHH @thefavouritemovie just won 7 @bafta awards !!!” Swift wrote alongside an Instagram picture of herself with a nod to the 27-year-old actor’s role in the period drama. “Bout to go give some high fives – thanks @stellamccartney for this dressss.”
Swift was later spotted packing on the PDA with Alwyn at a BAFTAs afterparty. “SUPER CUTE! Taylor Swift just snuck into the #eebaftas dinner and was very affectionate with her boyfriend Joe Alwyn on The Favourite table next door,” The Sun’s executive editor Dan Wootton captioned a series of Instagram pics showing the happy couple. “The most affectionate they’ve been yet. #taylorswift.”
