  1. A few thoughts to what is, by and large, a strong ballot this year:

    As one of the producers for Tyler Childers’ “In Your Love” video, Kentucky’s current Poet Laureate, Silas House, is now a Grammy nominee in the Best Music Video category.

    George Strait’s Blue Clear Sky is nominated for Best Immersive Audio Album, and I have no idea why that particular album of Strait’s was re-engineered in that format in 2023, but here we are.

    Seeing some chatter that Morgan Wallen was “snubbed,” as though his popularity isn’t its own reward or is indicative of artistic merit. But his massive crossover hit, “Last Night,” did show up in Best Country Song… He just wasn’t one of the committee of co-writers credited on it.

    I blanked on my three “No Guts, No Glory” predictions: “In Your Love” in the General Field Song Of The Year category, Adeem the Artist in Best New Artist, and Dolly Parton’s & Olivia Newton-John’s “Jolene” in Best Country Performance, Duo / Group. All three were long-shots, sure, but seemed somewhat plausible. But country underperformed in the General Field this year… Though I think The War & Treaty have a real shot at winning Best New Artist.

    Bummed not to see Maren Morris’ “The Tree” anywhere. But, as we saw with The Chicks’ and Kacey Musgraves’ last projects, genre confusion tends to alienate Grammy voters.

    Yes, he’s been wildly over-rewarded, but that Vince Gill track with Paul Franklin is aces.

    Even with their documentary premiering on Netflix and her Country Music Hall of Fame induction both occurring during the peak of the voting season, Tanya Tucker’s Sweet Western Sound project with Brandi Carlile was shut out. I actually think it’s a stronger album than its Grammy-winning predecessor, but there’s just been nowhere near the same buzz– or promo– around this one.

    • Re. Tanya Tucker: Yes, it is a pity that Tanya got bupkus when it came to Sweet Western Sound and her documentary film. Especially true with the album and one of its tracks, a subtle shout-out to Linda Ronstadt (“Letter To Linda”).

      As for Billie Eilish: I kind of look for her to grab some Grammy hardware for “What Was I Made For?”, which is from the soundtrack of Barbie (who’d have guessed that a film based on a doll created back in 1959 would be the highest grossing film of 2023).

      Of course, there’s the proverbial 800-pound Grammy gorilla in the room in the personage of Taylor Swift. She does tend to suck all the oxygen out of the room every time she “remakes” one of her albums from her Scott Borchetta period, which seems to be happening at the rate of once every three to four months (perhaps an overstatement, but you get the picture). I do have to wonder, though, whether she’s doing it for artistic reasons or prizes. If it’s for the latter, then, to quote Linda, she is in Big Trouble (IMHO).
