Taylor Swift and Civil Wars lead close Grammy race for Country Duo/Group
According to our predictors, Taylor Swift and The Civil Wars will come out on top at the Grammys for Best Country Duo/Group Performance. Their song, "Safe and Sound," from the "Hunger Games" soundtrack, gets field-leading 2/1 odds. It would be the seventh win for Swift and the third for the Civil Wars, who won this category last year.
But it may prove to be a close race. Though our editors and users strongly favor "Safe and Sound," our experts give the slight edge to Little Big Town for "Pontoon," giving the quartet 10/3 odds overall. The song is a proven winner, having already won Single of the Year at the 2012 CMA Awards.
In third place with 9/2 odds is "I Just Come Here for the Music," a collaboration between Don Williams and Alison Krauss. It may be foolish to underestimate them. Williams is a legend who was inducted in the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2010 but has never won a Grammy, while Krauss, quite the opposite, is a 27-time Grammy winner, making her the most honored vocalist in Grammy history.
