November 21, 2019
Who do the oddsmakers like at the 2019 GRAMMY Awards?



Nominees for the 62nd Annual GRAMMY Awards have been revealed, with Tanya Tucker leading the country nominees with four nods, including Song of the Year for “Bring My Flowers Now,” which is also nominated for Best Country Song and Best Country Solo Performance. In addition, Tanya’s least album, “While I’m Livin,” is nominated for Best Country Album.

Other artists receiving multiple nods include:

Billy Ray Cyrus, who landed three for “Old Town Road,” his collaboration with Lil Nas X (the rapper received six nods in total).

Brandi Carlile, who also nabbed three, two for her work co-producing Tanya’s record, and one Best Country Duo/Group Performance for “Common,” her collaboration with Maren Morris,

Ashley McBryde, who received also received three, including Best New Artist.

When it comes to Best Country Album, in addition to Tanya, artists receiving nods include Thomas Rhett, for “Center Point Road,” Eric Church, for “Desperate Man,” Reba McEntire, for “Stronger than the Truth,” and Pistol Annies, for “Interstate Gospel.”

As for the biggest country snub, that “honor” goes to Maren, who most industry forecasters predicted would not only sweep the country categories, but also get recognized in the all-genre categories. Instead, she received just the one nod for her song with Brandi.
