    I didn’t think Merry Go Round by Kacey Musgraves was eligible for country solo or country song since the song was released in the summer 2012???? I’ve noticed that the label took down the Merry Go Round single from itunes that had the single release date on it of summer 2012 and I also noticed that they took down her music video of the song from Youtube that had an upload date of summer 2012 as well. Maybe they are hoping that they can bypass the rules if they take down everything that showed it wasn’t released during the eligible time????

    I’d personally hope she’d submit “Follow your arrow.” Country radio refused to play that song, but I think it’s relevant to many things going on now.

    I wish that the next release from Alison Krauss & Union Station was going to available before the current eligibility period was done, but as of right now, I have not heard anything about a new album from them. (shaking my head)

    God bless you and AKUS always!!!

    Holly (a fan of them since 1994)

    P.S. When does the current eligibility period end anyways?

    Don’t forget about Sheryl Crow. Since they are pushing this album as country, I’m sure they will submit it at the Grammys as Country, so she’ll be a major factor in Solo Performance for “Easy” and her album (comes out Sept 10).

    I’m not sure about Sheryl Crow. Country voters aren’t like others in that they don’t just check off a name because they are a “big name.” All one has to do is to look at Lionel Ritchie last year. Country voters didn’t go for him at all. 

    Country is different because they are a category that really puts their own people first before even considering anyone else I believe. Also, Country likes to support pure country. I think if an artist is known for another genre and then they make 1 Country album, then Country voters see that as a “stunt.” In Country you have to earn your way into it, it’s not just handed to you. Lionel Ritchie was known mainly for R&B his whole career and he made one country album and the voters didn’t bite. Sheryl Crow is known for pop/rock her whole career, so I don’t think just because she makes one country album that she’ll be in.

    This is just how I see things because I am here in Nashville and my main voting category for the Grammy’s is the Country genre.

    Ryan, what do you think about Miranda Lambert’s “Over You” snub at the Grammys? the song won many awards at other country events but was totally snubbed by Grammy voters…

    I absolutely agree. Not saying she’ll be nominated or win, but she deserves to be listed as a contender. She’s a 9-time Grammy winner, and while voters could dismiss her as doing a “one off” album, Crow seems to be making a lot of effort to be accepted in the country community, from performing with Blake Shelton on the ACMs, being the headlining act at the opening of the new Music City Centre, so she might be making in roads with voters.

    Also, she’s always dabbled with country in her music as well and suspect her new album isn’t going to be drastically different than what she’s done before…so that could work for or against her in the country voting.

    Yeah, it’s clear that the Grammys really don’t like Lambert. They’ve snubbed her time and time again. She’s only won 1 Grammy for her megahit “The House That Built Me”. It’s crazy none of her incredible albums have won Country Album.
    It’s such an interesting disconnect between Grammy voters and other award show voters, where Lambert cleans up.

    “Over You” isn’t the first song to be overlooked by the Grammy awards. “Whiskey Lullaby” from Brad Paisley and Alison Krauss got recognition from the other award shows, but once Grammy award show time rolled around, it got absolutely nothing. (wondering what their deal was)

    God bless you and Brad and Alison always!!!

    Yes, but Miranda has been snubbed for the Country Album win twice, and was snubbed for even the nomination twice. And she was snubbed for a Vocal Performance nomination a couple times. Something is going on.

    correct me if i’m wrong but “Whiskey Lullaby” indeed got recognition from the other award shows but principally for its video, no?

    I think the reason that Miranda’s song “Over You” was over looked (and this is just my opinion so don’t shoot me lol) has to do with her husband, Blake Shelton. Blake shot his mouth off about how older country artists are “out of touch” and basically need to just shut up and retire and leave music to the new kids (Blake says this even though he’s like almost 40 himself). I think voters were turned off by this and decided not to vote for Blake or Miranda. Personally, I can list this reason as why some of the folks I know didn’t vote for them. When a person comes off as smug and basically gives a big middle finger to the artists that paved the way for them then that kind of stuff doesn’t really fly. 

    Some people may be saying “That doesn’t make sense. Blake and Miranda have won ACM’s and CMA’s galore.” The thing that people probably don’t realize is that a lot of the “older” folks in country music really do vote for the Grammy’s and their voice is heard a lot more through the Grammy’s versus the CMA’s etc. because in order to be a member of the Grammy’s you have to jump through hoops and prove you are in the business versus the CMA’s where you just have to be vouched for by somebody in Nashville. The point here is that a lot of non-industry people could vote for the CMA’s (more friends of artists/family etc.) so they have more of a block versus the Grammy’s where you have to have legitimate ties to Music. The Grammy’s then, the older voters have some say in who gets nominated (all one has to do is look at the nomination of Ronnie Dunn from this past years line up to see my point).

    I hope this makes some kind of sense to people.

    definetely that sounds very interesting but Blake Shelton still got the nomination this year for vocal performance…

    what do you think about the changes in voting for the Grammy awards?
