Lecrae was overwhelmed by the recognition, and thanked God for making it all possible. "Love and respect to everybody out here, because this is a celebration of gifts, and there are so many people out here who are gifted. Obviously, you can't celebrate the gifts without celebrating the giver of all gifts, so I want to celebrate Jesus for gifting us all," said Lecrae, upon receiving the award.

Lecrae and For King & Country thanked the "Original Messenger," referring to God, and called Him the "Creator of all Music."

Joel and Luke Smallbone, the brother duo who comprise For King & Country later said: "We're incredibly humbled by these two Grammys. Yes, they represent a song and an album, but more than that they recognise hope-filled music and the power of partnership. Partnership with our families, Lecrae, producers, our band, record label, and most importantly partnership with our supporters...Thanks to God for each of you. These awards belong to us all!"
