POLL: Who Should Win Best Americana Album at the 2015 Grammy Awards?
The Best Americana Album category at the 2015 Grammy Awards has a slew of fantastic records in the mix. In 2014, Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell took home the hardware with 'Old Yellow Moon.' This year, fan-favorite artists like Rosanne Cash, Nickel Creek and more are vying for a win.
Cash's ‘The River & the Thread’ is an 11-track record featuring artists like John Paul White (formerly of the Civil Wars), Cory Chisel and a choir of stars such as Crowell, Amy Helm, Kris Kristofferson, John Prine and Tony Joe White. It hit No. 1 on Billboard's Folk Albums chart, received critical acclaim by reviewers and was radio's most-played Americana album in 2014. Cash is also nominated in the Best American Roots Performance and Best American Roots Song categories.
John Hiatt is in the running with 'Terms of My Surrender,' his 22nd album, and three-time Grammy-winning musician Keb’ Mo’ was rewarded with a nomination for '‘Bluesamericana,’ a combination of two genres focusing heavily on the subjects of marriage and commitment.
Trio Nickel Creek officially reunited for the first time since their 2007 hiatus for a new album, 'A Dotted Line,' released in April 2014, and the band, formed in 1989, shows its easy, natural camaraderie on the record. Also looking for a Grammy win is Sturgill Simpson. His second album, ‘Metamodern Sounds in Country Music,’ has a title that nods to the genre-expanding Ray Charles album 'Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music' and is full of surprises and experimentation.
