Being recognized by the Recording Academy is a massive accomplishment, and 2022 Grammy winner come-up stories are definitely worth sharing.

On April 3, 2022, the 64th Annual Grammy Awards took place in the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

While this event had less drama than the Oscars’ “slap heard around the world”, hard work deserves acknowledgment.

Check out the stories of some of the creams of the 2022 Grammy Awards’ crop. 

Best Grammy Winner Come-up Stories of 2022

1Olivia Rodrigo

Singer-songwriter Olivia Rodrigo attended her first Grammys this year.

However, that didn’t stop her from walking away with three music awards — Best New Artist, Best Pop Solo Performance, and Best Pop Vocal Album for her debut album ‘Sour’.

When delivering her acceptance speech, Olivia Rodrigo shared that winning a Grammy had been a childhood dream of hers that she was convinced would come true.

“When I was 9 years old, I told my mom […] I was going to win a Grammy. she was very supportive even though I’m sure she thought it was just a little-kid pipe dream.”

Olivia is a great example of never lowering your targets and following your dreams.

2Chris Stapleton

After that, prolific country singer-songwriter Chris Stapleton shows that taking big risks pays off.

Around 2001, Stapleton was studying engineering in college. Then, he decided to take a leap, drop out, and pursue music in Nashville. 

He committed first and figured the rest out later.

Now, he has multiple Grammys, adding Best Country Album of 2022 to his collection.

3Tyler, the Creator

You can’t get great without getting some hate. And that’s exactly what Tyler, the Creator had on the road to his Grammy 2022 win.

When he remotely shared his acceptance speech via Instagram Live, Tyler addressed the haters who claim no one listens to the album:

“These arena tours that are selling out says different. And if you put that much energy into something, maybe everyone will be proud of you, too.”

I think his Best Rap Album award is a testament to that as well.

Our final story shows the power of marketing and getting your name out there.

In 2016, Bad Bunny started sharing his music on SoundCloud while working at his local grocery store. After one of his songs went viral, producers started calling him, which got him in the door to the music biz. 

This year is his second Grammy for Best Musica Urbana Album.
