"I was up against all these guys who had much bigger records and a bigger splash. It makes an old girl feel good." -- 63-year-old singer-songwriter Bonnie Raitt, who earned her 10th career Grammy in the best Americana album category for "Slipstream," beating out a field that included Mumford & Sons, The Lumineers and The Avett Brothers.
