I was not a happy Holly when the Best Country Album award went to Fly from the Dixie Chicks over Forget About It from Alison Krauss in early 2000. I was also not a happy Holly when the Best Female Country Performance award went to Carrie Underwood over Alison in early 2008.
God bless you and Alison always!!!
Holly (a fan of her for 20 years now)
P.S. Its okay though. Carrie’s 6 and the Chick’s 13 don’t even come close to Alison’s 27. (big smile)
