The controversy surrounding Nicki Minaj’s and Chris Brown’s respective performances this weekend have dominated most of the post-Grammy conversation over the past few days. However, now that the hubbub surrounding those performances is starting to die down, we here at VH1 want to take a few minutes to congratulate The Civil Wars on their two Grammy wins this weekend. Our April 2011 You Oughta Know artists beat out some stiff competition in the Best Country Duo/Group Performance and Best Folk Album categories, and stunned everyone with their totally-awesome-yet-all-too-brief performance of “Barton Hollow” during the live telecast. Thanks to the magic of the internet, now we’re able to see their acceptance speeches for their two wins which, sadly, were not shown during the CBS broadcast. Above, watch them accept the Best Country Duo/Group performance Grammy for “Barton Hollow” and below, check out their performance of that song here in the VH1 offices last May.
