    Keith Urban nominated for “You’ll Think of Me” in 2004 and won for the same song, same category in 2005…

    Any one know of the difference between the two???  I can’t seem to google a live version or a re recording anywhere.

    thanks!

    Good question.

    JayDF;  what may have happened is that,  Keith won for two different categories for the same song: Male Vocalist, and Country Male Vocalist. Then there’s Entertainer of the Year and so on.

    But that doesnt make entire sense either.

    If you can find out, I’d love to know.

    I’m not 100% sure, but I remember reading at the time that his second nomination was for a live version of that song (probably taken from his Livin’ Right Now DVD, released during that eligibility period)

    Thanks KaduDiniz!

    That’s got to be the answer!  I don’t remember seeing the DVD in my search, even if I had I would have likely skipped over it thinking it would be ineligible for a vocal category.  But it is the only answer.  Weird thing is Urban had at least 2 hit songs released as singles that year that he could have chosen for submission yet choose a live version of a song he had already lost a grammy for…and then won!!!

    Did a little research – Both Tina Turner (Better Be Good To Me) in the rock field & Beyonce (Halo) in the pop field had won a grammy for the studio recording and then later nominated for a live version.  Besides Urban, Sheryl Crow also won for a live version of a song after previously loosing for the studio version with “There Goes the Neighborhood” in the rock field.

    Then “Candle In the Wind” is all over the place, the original studio version was not nominated, live version was nominated and then the 1997 re recording won a vocal grammy for Elton John in the pop field.

    Only one person I could find was nominated for both a studio & a live version and lost both: Dolly Parton lost both country vocal bids for studio & live versions of “Jolene”.

    There are several people who were nominated for two different studio versions of the same song, in which most of them are a solo version and a duet version.  Dwight Yoakam managed 2 solo vocal nominations for “A Thousand Miles To Nowhere” in the country field.
