The group took home three trophies, Best Country Album (Lonely Runs Both Ways), Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group With Vocal and Best Country Instrumental Performance. Alison's awards ran her Grammy total to 20, cementing her hold as country's all-time Grammy leader. Backstage, Alison admitted that she didn't expect to win anything, and thought that Faith Hill would grab the Album award.

As it turned out, triple nominee Faith copped one Grammy with husband Tim McGraw for their duet, "Like We Never Loved At All." In one of the evening's surprises, Emmylou Harris won Best Female Country Vocal Performance for "The Connection," besting Faith, Gretchen Wilson, Lee Ann Womack and Trisha Yearwood, who all receive far more radio airplay. The award for Best Country Song went to "Bless the Broken Road," the Rascal Flatts hit.
