This video above shows you the real Laura Story, a down-to-earth person.
Laura Story came home the big winner by garnering five Dove Awards, including song of the year for "Blessings," last week in Atlanta, but don't expect the South Carolina native to become big headed. The self-described "Birkenstock and granola" singer remains humble.
Story wrote "Blessings" after her husband Martin was diagnosed with a brain tumor and then contracted meningitis during the surgery to remove the tumor.
"I would have rather written a song about winning the lottery, but you have to write about the hard times and how God showed up," said Story, who will be in Denver on Dec. 5 at the Denver Coliseum.
Story also won a Grammy Award for "Blessings" in the Best Contemporary Christian Song category.
"You know the Grammys were great, but it’s something about being here (at the Dove Awards) and with what God has done," Story said. "As far as the artists go, we don’t care who goes home with the hardware, it’s about glorifying God."
Story was asked about being on tour with Manidsa, who is more "bling and glitter" than the Southern singer.
"You know heaven is going to be like this, so get over it or you are going to be left out," Story said. "Mandisa is great. She’s taught me how to tweet and Facebook. It's like Birkenstock meets bling or granola and glitter. It's great."
When asked about what's next, Story, who is pregnant and due in September with a baby girl, said while raising the Dove Award, "I've done this pretty well, now I just want to be a good mom."
