Congrats to all of the great artists who were nominated for the 2015 Grammy awards!
Here’s a few that matter to me with some of my thoughts on them:
Best Country Song, Best Song Written for Visual Media: Glenn Campbell “I’m Not Gonna Miss You” – YES! YES! YES! The RIGHT thing for all other song writers to do that are in this category, is if they win instead of Mr Campbell, they should respectfully decline and give it to him!
Best Americana Album: Sturgill Simpson (Metamodern Sounds In Country Music) – WHY is this NOT in the COUNTRY section??? It’s a COUNTRY album. UGH.
Best New Artist, Best Country Album: Brandy Clark – She’s a badass. You need to know her!
Best Rock Performance, Best Rock Song, Best Rock Album: Ryan Adams – not from Texas but still damn good.
Best Country Solo Performance, Best Country Duo/Group Performance, Best Country Song, Best Country Album: Miranda Lambert – I love her.
Best Country Album: Lee Ann Womack (The Way I’m Livin’) – one of my absolute faves right now.
Best Blues Album – Ruthie Foster (Promise of a Brand New Day)- if you don’t know of her, I’m sorry!
Best Folk Album – Old Crow Medicine Show (Remedy) – DUH!
