POLL: Who Should Win Best Country Solo Performance at the 2015 Grammy Awards?
In 2012, Taylor Swift's 'Mean' took home the Best Country Solo Performance prize; 2013 was Carrie Underwood's year with 'Blown Away;' and Darius Rucker nabbed the award last year. This year, the Grammy Awards' nominees for Best Country Solo Performance include fan-favorite artists like Eric Church, Underwood and Miranda Lambert.
The second single from Church's 'The Outsiders,' 'Give Me Back My Hometown' takes aim at an ex-lover whose memory still haunts the song's narrator when he returns to his hometown. On a completely different note, country heartthrob Hunter Hayes brings the message of bullying to light with his emotional and empowering song ‘Invisible,’ which, in a prophetic twist, he debuted at last year's Grammys.
Lambert's seventh No. 1 single ‘Automatic’ put country fans in touch with her softer side. It's a gorgeously written song reflecting on a slower, simple, more fulfilling lifestyle -- similar to the way Lambert grew up. Soon-to-be-mom Underwood took a bold leap of faith with ‘Something in the Water,’ making a clear correlation between her Christian faith and the symbolism of water and baptism. Her powerful vocals are on display in this tune, which she describes as joyous and uplifting.
Keith Urban is also hoping for a Grammy with his catchy and romantic hit ‘Cop Car.’ The singer performed it at the 2014 Grammys, joined by Gary Clark, Jr.
