Last night, Courtney Barnett attended her first-ever Grammy Awards. "It's a surreal scene, you know, growing up in Australia and being so distant from that sort of thing," the singer-songwriter told RS. "But yeah, it means a kind of recognition for all this hard work we've been doing, I guess. I don't know. I think it's just nice."
Barnett ended up losing to Meghan Trainor in the Best New Artist category, but for fans of her sharply observant music, it was a thrill just to see her name among the nominees. Before the show started, our photographer was with Barnett and her bandmates as they got ready for the big night. Check out our exclusive behind-the-scenes photos here.
