Jason Isbell, who won Grammy’s for Best Album and Best Song in the genre earlier this year, took home three awards for 'Album of the Year' with his latest album 'The Nashville Sound', 'Duo/Group of the Year' as frontman of his band The 400 Unit and 'Song of the Year' for "If We Were Vampires." 

 

John Prine won the final award of the night for ‘Artist of the Year’ for the second time in a row, with the release of ‘The Tree of Forgiveness,’ his first collection of new material since 2005. 

When receiving his award, Prine said: “I want to thank all of you that bought my record and all of you that didn’t buy my record - we’ll get you sooner or later.”

Earlier this week, Prine was bestowed with the second-ever BMI Troubadour Award for his indelible influence on generations of songwriters.
