OPEN SECRETS: Speaking of Grammy, is it possible that the secret screening committees might be different this year? Or will the same “you scratch my back” game go on? The Recording Academy has set some new rules regarding conflict of interest in these committees, in which every important nomination is decided by culling the list of top vote-getters in each category. Over the last few years, many observers have come to believe the Nashville chapter and its screening committee are the most conflicted of all time. All eyes will therefore be on those nominations, as certain consultants play a very large role in the decision-making process and make no bones about how much influence they’re pedaling. The BNA secret screening committee should also be a wild one—and worthy of a two-hour documentary—as the new line in the sand for qualification is when the artist “first came to prominence.” This has already led to some culling on the first ballot. So far, the Nashville chapter has not been accused of voter suppression. But hey, it’s still early.

What exactly do they mean by “Nashville chapter”?
The word from several insiders is that busy industry consultant, music exec, activist and Nashville Recording Academy Trustee Tracy Gershon has emerged as a strong voice out of Nashville, and that she has had a substantial impact “in the room” in influencing Grammy nominations this year and last. It’s said that she has been an effective advocate for the work of artist Brandi Carlile, previously helping advocate for the artist’s nominations bonanza—and this year campaigning for heavily nominated Tanya Tucker, on whose latest project Carlile served as writer and co-producer. The award-winning exec also been a major voice for diversity and inclusion amid the Old Boys Club of Nashville, co-founding Change the Conversation to help “improve the environment for women in country music.”October 26, 2020 at 4:21 pm #1203804179
So we are going to get “fairer” voting this year, and in turn more boys club country. Okay, sounds… kinda yuck.

Honestly there aren’t any Grammys precursors, it’s not the Oscars. BMAs, AMAs, and VMAs never do anything to predict the Grammy awards neither do any of the country award shows.October 26, 2020 at 5:28 pm #1203804300
