Our two music awards editors -- David Schnelwar and Darrin Dortch -- disagree on the winner of Best Country Solo Performance at this Sunday's Grammys. 

Dierks Bentley - “Home”
Eric Church - “Springsteen” -- Darrin
Ronnie Dunn - “Cost Of Livin’”
Hunter Hayes - “Wanted”
Blake Shelton - “Over” -- David
Carrie Underwood - “Blown Away”

David's analysis
Carrie Underwood is the lone female artist nominated against four male artists. She previously won Best Female Country Vocal Performance three years in a row. This year, her song “Blown Away” is also nominated for Best Country Song.

Hunter Hayes has three nominations this year including Best New Artist.  That gives him a statistical advantage to win.

However, Blake Shelton gained national exposure by being a coach on NBC’s “The Voice.” He has won countless country music awards but has yet to win a Grammy. I think he will this year. 

Darrin's analysis
Eric Church (“Springsteen”), Ronnie Dunn (“Cost of Livin’) and Carrie Underwood (“Blown Away”) are the frontrunners here. All of their songs are up for Best Country Song.

I give Church the edge since his song has won honors at previous country music award shows.
