    Country Music News

    1) Last night's Grammys were filled with some amazing performances.  And if you didn't catch Luke Combs performing with Tracy Chapman, you really should check it out online.  It was awesome to see them singing together. 

    (There's a link to the full performance, here.)

    Jelly Roll was also up for Best New Artist, but Victoria Monet went home with the prize instead.

    Here are the Grammy results in Country's top four categories . . .

    1.  Best Country Song goes to . . . Chris Stapleton with "White Horse".

    2.  Best Country Album goes to . . . Lainey Wilson with "Bell Bottom Country".

    3.  Best Country Solo Performance goes to . . . Chris Stapleton with "White Horse".

    4.  Best Country Duo/Group Performance goes to . . . Zach Bryan featuring Kacey Musgraves with "I Remember Everything"

     

    2) Morgan Wallen's "One Thing at a Time" wasn't up for Album of the Year OR Best Country Album at the Grammys.  And fans aren't happy, especially after it just tied a Billboard RECORD.

    It's now topped the Billboard 200 for 18 total weeks.  That ties Garth Brooks' 1991 album "Ropin' the Wind" for most weeks at #1 for a country album.  Keep trying, Morgan . . . maybe your next one will be "good." (Billboard)

     

    3) Kacey Musgraves posted a nude photo of herself laying in a pasture on Saturday.  She didn't include a caption, but fans were quick to speculate that it could be her next album cover.  An announcement is expected to be coming soon.

    (Kacey isn't exactly SHY when it comes to nudity.  Remember her 2021 "Saturday Night Live" performance?)

     

    4) Cody Johnson rocked the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville the other night, and sold more tickets than any debuting headliner in the venue's history.

    He also surprised the crowd by bringing out Brooks & Dunn to join him on "Long Live Country Music", their duet from his latest album, "Leather".

    And he assured the crowd that they were hearing LIVE music.  Quote, "There ain't no tracks on my stage.  This is seven guys working our ass off to play real country music for you up here today."
