    With all due respect, I don’t think this belongs in “unpopular opinions”!

    Which I am guessing is the reason why she only over took my most favorite female singer by just one Grammy award win?

    God bless you and her and Alison always!!!

    Don’t worry, she’ll keep extending her record every year! 😀

    I just did a quick run through Alison and Beyoncé’s Grammy pages and wondered what their out comes would’ve been like had the merger occurred at the start of their careers.

    Alison benefitted a lot from pointless categories like Country Instrumental Performance and Best Southern, Country or Bluegrass Gospel Album (wtf?). Today, Krauss would have at least 16 Grammys. Oh, and let’s not forget literally half of those are because of Robert Plant.

    Beyoncé, who also benefitted from various categories but not so pointless ones, would have at least 24 Grammys had the merger occurred earlier.

    Full analysis coming soon.

    Conclusion: Alison Krauss is pretty overrated.

    Here are Krauss’s wins:

    BEST BLUEGRASS RECORDING
    I’ve Got That Old Feeling
    Possible Outcome: Sure win.
    Comment: Still counts as a win. Best Bluegrass Album is still (and should be) a category.

    BEST BLUEGRASS ALBUM
    Every Time You Say Goodbye
    Possible Outcome: Sure win.
    Comment: Again, would’ve still won.

    BEST SOUTHERN GOSPEL, COUNTRY GOSPEL OR BLUEGRASS GOSPEL ALBUM
    I Know Who Holds Tomorrow
    Possible Outcome: Win
    Comment: This category was merged with the Rock Gospel and Pop Gospel categories to form the Contemporary Christian Music Album category. Comparing the three winners that year, Alison would most likely still have taken the cake. She was seemingly the biggest name and had the best sounding album of all three.

    BEST FEMALE COUNTRY VOCAL PERFORMANCE
    “Baby, Now That I’ve Found You”
    Possible Outcome: Possible win.
    Comment: This track was actually performed with Union Station, explicitly disqualifying it from Country Solo today. However, this track could actually fly under the American Roots Performance category. And since there aren’t that many tracks to compare this with, I’d say it would’ve been a possible win for both Krauss and Union Station in AR.

    BEST COUNTRY COLLABORATION WITH VOCALS
    “Somewhere In The Vicinity Of The Heart”
    Possible Outcome: Loss
    Comment: This category would be merged with Country Performance by a Duo/Group to become Best Country Duo/Group Performance. And while this track is solid, there’s no way in hell the Recording Academy would’ve not given this to the Mavericks for “Here Comes the Rain.”

    BEST COUNTRY COLLABORATION WITH VOCALS
    “High Lonesome Sound”
    Possible Outcome: Possible win
    Comment: Here, we have another potential AR performance submission and possible win.

    BEST COUNTRY PERFORMANCE BY A DUO OR GROUP WITH VOCAL
    “Looking In The Eyes Of Love”
    Possible Outcome: Sure loss.
    Comment: I mean, do I need to say more than a damn Trisha Yearwood and Garth Brooks collaboration?

    BEST COUNTRY INSTRUMENTAL PERFORMANCE
    “Little Liza Jane”
    Possible Outcome: Definite loss.
    Comment: This technically still qualifies under the Country Solo performance category, but we all know this coulnd’t stand against, again, Trisha Yearwood.

    BEST BLUEGRASS ALBUM
    So Long So Wrong
    Possible Outcome: Win
    Comment: No explanation needed at this point.

    BEST COUNTRY COLLABORATION WITH VOCALS
    “Same Old Train”
    Possible Outcome: Sure loss
    Comment: Two words: The Dixie Chicks.

    ALBUM OF THE YEAR
    O Brother, Where Art Thou? – Soundtrack
    Possible Outcome: Sure loss
    Comment: 3/19 songs isn’t 33%.

    BEST COUNTRY PERFORMANCE BY A DUO OR GROUP WITH VOCAL
    “The Lucky One”
    Possible Outcome: Sure loss
    Comment: She made the mistake of doing an actual Country song this time. It definitely would’ve lost to a track from the Album of the Year winner.

    BEST BLUEGRASS ALBUM
    New Favorite
    Possible Outcome: Sure win
    Comment: No explanation needed.

    BEST CONTEMPORARY FOLK ALBUM
    This Side
    Possible Outcome: Sure win
    Comment: Traditional and Contemporary Folk are collectively known today as Best Folk Album. Krauss would’ve still won.

    BEST COUNTRY COLLABORATION WITH VOCALS
    “How’s The World Treating You”
    Possible Outcome: Sure loss
    Comment: She would’ve lost hands down to Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder.

    BEST COUNTRY INSTRUMENTAL PERFORMANCE
    “Cluck Old Hen”
    Possible Outcome: Sure loss
    Comment: No way an instrumental performance beats Vince Gill or June Carter Cash/

    BEST BLUEGRASS ALBUM
    Live
    Possible Outcome: Sure win
    Comment: Definitely should’ve won. Love this album too.

    BEST COUNTRY PERFORMANCE BY A DUO OR GROUP WITH VOCAL
    “Restless”
    Possible Outcome: Sure loss
    Comment: Certainly would’ve lost to Faith Hill.

    BEST COUNTRY INSTRUMENTAL PERFORMANCE
    “Unionhouse Branch”
    Possible Outcome: Sure loss
    Comment: No way and instrumental track beats Emmylou Harris and Keith Urban.

    BEST COUNTRY ALBUM
    Lonely Runs Both Ways
    Possible Outcome: Win
    Comment: Country Album still exists

    +6 Grammys thanks to Robert Plant

    BEST BLUEGRASS ALBUM
    Paper Airplane
    Possible Outcome: Win
    Comment: No need explaining again.

    Max total: 17

    So she most likely wouldn’t have 10 extra Grammys by today’s standards.

    P.S. At the end of the day, plenty of acts wouldn’t have so many win if things back then went by the way that things go now. (shrugs)

    Yeah, Beyoncé would still have 24.

    To create more perspective, Krauss, by today’s standards, would have at best 17 Grammys over a 32-year Grammy career.

    Beyoncé, on the other hand, would have at least 24 Grammys over a 22-year Grammy career.

    For even more perspective, Beyoncé has found herself competing in more competitive categories than Krauss. I mean, if the Grammys were to make all American Roots albums into one big American Roots Album category, Krauss would probably be short a whole six Grammys.

    Had Krauss never collaborated with Robert Plant, she would be short another six Grammys.

    Beyoncé on the other has had all her albums except BEYONCÉ and 4 (and The Gift) win either Best Contemporary R&B Album or Best Urban Contemporary Album and all times against stellar albums.

    Beyoncé has been nominated for Album of the Year thrice and inarguably should’ve won at least once for Lemonade over 25 of all albums.

    Krauss snuck herself an AOTY win with O Brother Where Art Thou? (a win which wouldn’t exist by today’s standards) and yet another all thanks to Led Zeppelin frontman, Robert Plant, who arguably should’ve lost to Radiohead’s In Rainbows that year, but trust the Grammy’s hardon for sweeps and namechecking legends even though they have a damn legend award.

    Oh, and this is also a much higher possibility for Bey, who legit just won four Grammys this year, than it would be for Krauss who hasn’t touched a Grammy in over ten years.

    I seriously  don’t get the Krauss hype at this point.

     

    Look, she’s brilliant in her field and I love her. She’s got such a nice voice and I love how she complemented Plant on Raising Sand. But when we’re talking overall music bosses, I don’t see her as a threat at all. She has only two undeserving General Field wins and has benefitted strongly from weak competition.

    On the other hand, Beyoncé is fucking Beyoncé. End of story.
