The Grammys were a big night for country's current crop of hot stars as well as the veterans.

Faith Hill was the big winner of Wednesday night's award ceremony, taking home three awards, including Best Female Country Vocal Performance, Best Country Vocal Collaboration (with Tim) and Best Country Album. Faith said the honor that meant the most to her was the one she shared with Tim, since it was the first time either of them had taken home the prestigious award.

Shelby Lynne performed a rousing duet with rocker Sheryl Crow and, despite the fact she's been making music for more than a decade, won the award for best new artist.

Other winners included Asleep At The Wheel, and Dolly Parton for her bluegrass album.
