It’s nearly Frebruary and yet the Grammy Awards are still nearly 3 weeks away. The latest they have been in the schedule for a long time, it gives me some time to delve into the big nominees and see who is most likely to be smiling once the night arrives. I’ll be listening to some …
Of course there’s some crossover with the Song of the Year category, I can’t think of a year when most of the songs haven’t been in both categories. The 3 crossover songs here are the ones I’m most confident about, specifically Uptown Funk, Can’t Feel My Face and Girl Crush.
Releases performed by Sam Hunt and Little Big Town will be nominated and will probably win all 4 of these categories between them, with just Country Album that they might miss out on on the night. Girl Crush and Take Your Time have been such huge hits that I’ll be baffled if a different song picks up the Best Country Song award.
An interesting mix of songs for the main two categories this year and some omissions in my choices that may seem surprising. My picks lean heavily towards the Pop/RnB side of things, with one obvious outlier.
