    I am not a fan of country, but “Whiskey Lullaby” by Brad Paisley & Alison Krauss is absolutely heartbreaking. I mean, wow. It’s one of the best country songs I ever heard.

    So why didn’t the Grammys give it its due?

    I completely agree. The song is simply outstanding. The lyrics are truly meaningful and the vocals compliment each other and the tone of the song so well. I’ve always thought that the video that goes with the song would make a great film. 

    It’s such a shame that this song didn’t register on the Grammy radar. I believe that this song should have not just made the Country field but also the General Field.

    I didn’t follow this all back then but I wonder if it was a botched submission? I mean come on, Alison Krauss may be the most Grammy-bait artist working today, it is honestly shocking the song got no recognition. Couple that with the fact that it is truly an amazing song, it blows my mind.

    “Whiskey Lullaby” was named Song of the Year by the Country Music Association.

    Grammy voters simply infrequently match up with the CMAs. They two groups clearly have different tastes.

    It should be noted that CMAs have a Song of the Year and Record of the Year for country music, while the Grammys only an award for Song of the Year.

    In the past two decades, the two organizations had same recipient for Country Song of the Year a mere 30% of the time. Those six double winners were

    • Girl Crush (Little Big Town)
    • Stay (Sugarland)
    • Live Like You Were Dying (Tim McGraw)
    • Where Were You When The World Stopped Turning (Alan Jackson)
    • I Hope You Dance (Lee Ann Womack)
    • Go Rest on That High Mountain (Vince Gill)

    This is honestly one of the best country songs of the past 20 years. To this day I can’t listen to this song without crying. I didn’t really follow awards back when this was released but to hear the fact that this didn’t win anything is a TRAVESTY!!!

    To me, this wasn’t the first time that a collaboration of Alison’s has been completely overlooked. Go here to check out another of her gem duets.

    God bless you and Alison always!!!

    Holly (a fan of her since 1994)

    P.S. If both duets had gotten the Grammy recognition that they deserve, she would be even closer to having more Grammy awards than any other person in music period. She currently has 27 and the person who right now has the most which is 31 is the late conductor named Georg Solti. Go here for a list of Alison’s Grammy award wins and nominations.

    I think it would’ve been eligible in the 2004 Grammy Awards (correct me if I’m wrong).

    I’m not crazy about country music, but “Whiskey Lullaby” is a good song.  The Grammys don’t always get it right.
