64th Annual GRAMMY Awards in Las Vegas
4 April 2022
What a fantastic night at the GRAMMYs!
So wonderful to be able to gather safely with so many friends. I thought the performances were amazing.
Such an honor to be part of the ceremony, presenting alongside one of my great heroes and friend, Joni Mitchell. So grateful that we got to acknowledge her being The Recording Academy’s MusiCares Person of the Year and my Lifetime Achievement Award, while introducing our pal, Brandi Carlile’s brilliant performance.
Having to postpone and move the GRAMMYs to Las Vegas due to the Covid situation unfortunately curtailed them being able to hold the Special Merit Awards, where we would normally have been presented with our Lifetime Achievement Awards, the day before. Either way, I was so glad to be acknowledged and get to be a part of this year’s stellar GRAMMYs show.
A few weeks earlier, I was blessed to receive another wonderful tribute, the Billboard Women in Music Icon Award, where I was given the opportunity to thank all those who helped me get where I am today. You can listen to my speech here, if you’d like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZOmxB9x1HSY
It’s been a truly amazing time for me —- two incredibly special awards and my new album and tour all rolling out this spring! I am extremely grateful and excited for it all.
Can’t wait to play for you out on the road again! Hope to see you soon!
