Catch the 52nd Annual GRAMMY®Awards
Sunday, Jan. 31, 8 p.m. ET/PT, live on CBS
Up for two country awards, the singer (just engaged to hockey star Mike Fisher) shares her top moments from music's big night.
FAVORITE GRAMMY MEMORY
Winning Best New Artist [in February 2007] was awesome. I had literally just gotten offstage doing the Eagles tribute with Rascal Flatts. I didn't have a speech prepared—the competition I was up against had sold millions of albums—so I was like, I have no chance. I don't know how, but I won!
WEIRDEST GRAMMY ENCOUNTER
You run into all kinds of people wandering around backstage. I said hi to Snoop, but I think he thought I was a little kid.
ON HER IPOD
I'm in love with Brandon Heath's voice. Jason Aldean is kind of country/hard rock and I dig it. And you can never go wrong listening to Alan Jackson.
ADVICE FOR GRAMMY FIRST-TIMERS
You're in a room with the most amazing talent: no pressure. Just have fun. And take pictures! I didn't; I'm really bad about that.
