Sam Smith took top honours at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards winning Record of the Year with his single Stay With Me. He won four awards: Best Pop Vocal Album, Best New Artist, Song of the Year, and Record of the Year.

A question we’ve always asked was What is the difference between Record Of The Year and Song Of The Year?
The Record Of The Year category recognizes the artist’s performance as well as the overall contributions of the producer(s), recording engineer(s) and/or mixer(s) if other than the artist. The Song Of The Year category recognizes the songwriter(s).
