10. When Willie Nelson took home the inaugural GRAMMY Legend Award.
In 1990, Willie Nelson was among the first class of recipients for the GRAMMY Legend Award, which recognizes artists' "ongoing contributions and influence" in music.
In the case of Nelson, the 11-time GRAMMY winner continues to prove worthy of the prestigious prize by touring tirelessly and releasing new projects regularly.
In fact, the iconic Texan is up for one award in 2017—Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album for Summertime: Willie Nelson Sings Gershwin—and recently announced his next album of original work, God's Problem Child, is set to drop in April.
To date, Johnny Cash is the only other country artist to have received the GRAMMY Legend Award.
