Up next… “Best Country Song.”
I think noticeably absent from this category are Blake Shelton & Miranda Lambert for their heart breaking and beautiful co-written song, “Over You.”
What do you think? Any other songs you feel were slighted a nomination in this category?
POLL: Grammy - Best Country Song

If you don’t know the name Will Hoge yet, it’s time for us to help change that. He’s been making music for well over a decade and has garnered an impressive fan base on the merits of his often-independent releases. He’s appeared on stage at the Grand Ole Opry alongside Vince Gill, performed on GAC’s flood relief program “Music City Keep On Playin,” and has opened for the likes of Needtobreathe, Sugarland, and the Civil Wars.
The guys of the Eli Young Band have scored their second consecutive #1 on Country radio with their single, “Even If It Breaks Your Heart,” off of their Life At Best Album. The song nabbed the #1 spot on both the Billboard Hot Country Singles Chart and the USA Today/Country Aircheck powered by Mediabase Chart.
”The message that is in ‘Even If It Breaks Your Heart’ lives in every one us, said Jimmy Harnen, President of Republic Nashville. He added, “we all have dreams that we strive to achieve regardless of how challenging the journey. In many respects this song is reflective of EYB’s drive, hard work and incredible talent to be where they are today! Back-to-back #1 singles with ‘Crazy Girl’ and ‘Even If It Breaks Your Heart,’ sold out shows, platinum and gold records and millions of fans. I have said it before and I will say it again, this could not happen to a nicer or more deserving group of people.”
Jon Jones (bass player for EYB) said, “It means the world to us to have back to back number ones.” He added, “this one is especially meaningful to us because the song resonated with us like nothing before. The song is our story and that it has been embraced by country fans and country radio is proof that dreams really do come true.“
