Former President Jimmy Carter has won a Grammy for Best Spoken Word Album. 

Judges made the announcement Monday afternoon honoring his work on A Full Life: Reflections at Ninety.

He was up against Dick Cavett's autobiography Brief Encounters: Conversations, Magic Moments, and Assorted Hijinks, Patti Smith's reading of Blood on Snow, Janis Ian's narration of Patience and Sarah, and Amy Poehler's tell-all Yes Please.

Carter won his first Grammy for Best Spoken Word in 2007 for Our Endangered Values: America's Moral Crisis.

He has been nominated a total of seven times.

The GRAMMYs are the only peer-presented award to honor artistic achievement, technical proficiency and overall excellence in the recording industry, without regard to album sales or chart position.

The 58th Grammy Awards airs at 8 p.m. Eastern on Feb. 15 on CBS.
