For those of you that watched, the 2019 Grammy Awards was undoubtedly one of the best shows in its 61 year history, featuring all of today’s best artists combining for a star-studded celebration of music.
For those of you that missed it (or DVR’ed it and haven’t gotten around to it yet) here’s what BULL NATION got to witness last night from Los Angeles!
Move over, Taylor Swift!
Let’s be honest, Kacey was the big winner on Sunday. Her work on her 2018 album “Golden Hour” brought home the coveted ALBUM OF THE YEAR, along with a win for BEST COUNTRY SONG for “Space Cowboy” and BEST COUNTRY SOLO PERFORMANCE for “Butterflies”.
Dan & Shay
Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney, unsurprisingly, took home the award BEST COUNTRY DUO/GROUP PERFORMANCE for their hit single “Tequila”. The song was the 5th-most played song on every country station in America and Canada last year, and was certified Double Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America in November.
One of the hottest tickets on the planet, Dan & Shay also performed the song, starting with their simple acoustics which were then joined by an orchestra. Both of the boys were pitch-perfect, and even though they had to follow Alicia Keys’ dual-piano straddling performance they more than WOWED us!
Surprising us all, the show was conspicuously Carrie-less. Her much-loved album “Cry Pretty”, along with its same-titled single and “Love Wins” didn’t get any nominations, despite Carrie’s 2 nominations and one win at the Country Music Awards last November.
Snub? We think so!
