Grammys 2015: Sam Smith's "Stay With Me" Wins Song of the Year
Newcomer Sam Smith's "Stay With Me" won him song of the year in addition to three other Grammys Sunday night.
It's official: Sam Smith's "Stay With Me" is the Song of the Year, as noted at Sunday's 57th Grammy Awards.
The musician won the award over Meghan Trainor's "All About That Bass," Sia's "Chandelier," Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off," and Hozier's "Take Me to Church." The win for songwriting added to Smith's other three Grammys for best pop vocal album, best new artist, and record of the year.
"I'm having a really, really, really good night," Smith began with a laugh as he claimed his third Grammy in his first appearance at the awards show. "I'm going to pass you over to Jimmy Napier," the artist continued, running short on time, "who's one of my best friends and has written my album with me, been my therapist for a year." Napier, who co-wrote "Stay With Me" with Smith and William Phillips, congratulated Smith on his awards and called him "an unbelievable friend" before going on to thank his family.
This year, Smith and Beyonce were tied for the most nominations with six, but Smith has more in the major categories. Still, Beyonce's six nods have officially made her the most Grammy-nominated woman in history.
