POLL: Who Should Win Best Country Solo Performance at the 2016 Grammy Awards?
Country music fans have been abuzz about the curly-haired Cam since the release of her stunning single “Burning House.” The song has reached No. 2 on the charts, and her unassuming vocal performance and the single’s hard-hitting lyrics have helped earn it platinum certification.
Chris Stapleton stunned a whole lot of people at the 2015 CMA Awards with his sweep of three major categories, and now, all eyes are on him for this year’s Grammys. “Traveller,” the title track from the singer-songwriters solo debut album, is nominated for Best Country Solo Performance, and it’s pure country — just like the rest of Stapleton’s record.
“Little Toy Guns” from Underwood’s first greatest hits album, Greatest Hits: Decade #1, was written by the singer herself, along with Chris DeStefano and Hillary Lindsey. Thanks in part to its meaningful lyrics, which describe two parents’ tumultuous relationship from their little girl’s point of view, the song peaked at No. 2.
“John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16,” sung by Keith Urban, was penned by some of Nashville’s biggest songwriters: Shane McAnally, Ross Copperman and Josh Osborne. The song is acoustically driven, and its tangle of lyrics and rhythm, plus a ’70s-style groove, helped it peak at No. 2 on the country charts.
“Chances Are” is from Lee Ann Womack‘s newest record, The Way I’m Livin’. Its traditional country sound and personal lyrics form one incredible song — and earned Womack one of her two Grammy noms this year.
