No one else, not even Loretta, is coming close to taking it from him.December 15, 2016 at 9:17 pm #1201970612
Keith Urban will be an afterthought. Brandy Clark may win one day. Previous winner here, Loretta Lynn will take the backseat. Maren Morris received a lot of love. However, it won’t be enough to take down AOTY nominee Sturgill Simpson.
SHOULD WIN: Sturgill Simpson, A Sailor’s Guide to Earth
WILL WIN: Srurgill Simpson, A Sailor’s Guide to EarthDecember 16, 2016 at 11:03 am #1201970875
My vote goes to Loretta because her ability to bring it still at the age that she is at now is something to be considered in my opinion.
God bless you and her always!!!
Go here to check out my most favorite singer James Otto!

Guys any thoughts on best country song & best country solo performance ?December 21, 2016 at 8:13 pm #1201973517
Album is between Sturgill and Maren. I’m going with Sturgill just because of his AOTY nomination.
As for Country solo, I think it will be Maren. While Country song will be Humble & Kind because that really was the song of the year in country music. It was shocking Tim McGraw didn’t get into Country solo for it.December 21, 2016 at 11:04 pm #1201973580
Maren Morris will win Best Country Album.December 22, 2016 at 5:58 am #1201973633
Keith urban or Miranda lambert threats for song & solo performance?February 5, 2017 at 5:18 am #1202003444
only Shania Twain & Taylor Swift lost it here when they were also nominated for AotY to an album without AotY nom. both times, the eventual winner was an emerging artist (Dixie Chicks & Kacey Musgraves, respectively).
is Sturgill really the favorite? don’t you forget that both Country Album & AotY nominees are chosen by a special committee. will the mass vote favor him too? he didn’t even get anything at CMA or didn’t get any other country noms this year…February 5, 2017 at 9:12 am #1202003551
The thing about Sturgill Simpson is that he got a lot of buzz after landing that AOTY nomination, so that will likely play into his win (if he indeeds win here).
I wouldn’t be surprised at a Maren Morris win. Loretta Lynn might upset them all, though.February 5, 2017 at 11:56 am #1202003652
Loretta Lynn will win this category just like how Bonnie Raitt beat Mumford and Sons on their AOTY win.
