The song categories are always a crapshoot; I won’t bother.
8 nominees or not, the trend has long been that country albums only get in when they are either commercial juggernauts (Fearless, Need You Now, Fly, Home, Red) and/or critical darlings (Golden Hour, These Days, A Sailor’s Guide to Earth, Traveller). The one outlier is Taking the Long Way, which was nominated (and went on to win) for obvious…[Read more]
“Speechless” is the biggest country song of the year and “Beautiful Crazy” wasn’t his SOTY submission; “Beer Never Broke My Heart” was. “Beautiful Crazy” isn’t eligible for songwriting categories because the version with Leon Bridges was submitted last year.
Only CMA AOTY winners to receive AOTY nominations at the Grammys:
Johnny Cash at San Quentin (1970)
Behind Closed Doors (1973)
The Gambler (1980)
O Brother, Where Art Thou? (2002)
Golden Hour (2019)
For everyone suddenly jumping the gun on Maren Morris just because of the CMAs.

That’s not a “handful of Swifties,” that’s a consensus agreement. So I stand by saying that she’s being massively overhyped.

Darren replied to the topic Who will be the most nominated artist at the 2020 Grammy Awards? in the forum Music 1 week, 1 day ago
Billie Eilish will lead with 7 nominations, everything she submitted.
Lil Nas X will almost certainly be left out. Lewis Capaldi is possible (the fact that he has the best-selling album of the year in the UK definitely helps his case), but he’s not a lock.
That’s all the more reason she is unlikely to be nominated – she’s had her moment.
Alison Krauss has won AOTY twice and is the most awarded woman in Grammy history, and she doesn’t get automatically predicted in the general field for everything she releases.
