Sunday night my favorite award show will be on CBS at 8 PM. The 2020 Grammy Awards will be full of surprises. The fact that you can't turn on the news in the last 24 hours and not hear all the accusations flying around is adding to the suspense. I have to say I hope all of this talk about artists being over looked is not accurate but in the meantime I want to cast my votes for my favorites in the country categories.

Best Country Solo Performance
For new vocal or instrumental solo country recordings - I am tossed up between Ashley McBride and Willie Nelson

  • ALL YOUR’N
    Tyler Childers
  • GIRL GOIN' NOWHERE
    Ashley McBryde

    Willie Nelson
  • GOD'S COUNTRY
    Blake Shelton
  • BRING MY FLOWERS NOW
    Tanya Tucker

Best Country Duo/Group Performance
For new vocal or instrumental duo/group or collaborative country recordings - This award should be all Little Big Town but I would be okay with the Brooks and Dunn Luke Combs combo walking away with the trophy.

Sunday night should be a lot of fun because even though their are rumors flying that it is all fixed the truth is there are very talented people nominated who worked hard and deserve a chance to win a Grammy. We will have to tune in Sunday to find out who come out on top.
