POLL: Grammy – Best Country Song

1205

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?

His newest single, “Springsteen,” from his album, “Chief,” topping the charts at Number 1. Church’s prior single, “Drink In My Hand,” marked his first career Number 1 record; both songs were co-writes for Church.  In addition, “Springsteen” also officially received RIAA Platinum certification at the same time as his debut album, “Sinners Like Me,” reached Gold status.

Rolling Stone – “Best of 2011″ Lists

Pistol Annies

Rolling Stone editors have published their annual “Best of ” lists, including their favorite albums and singles of 2011. It is always noteworthy and an impressive feat to get recognition from the iconic publication. Check out which country artists made the lists!

Country favorite, Miranda Lambert, has had a year for the books both professionally and personally. She experienced career milestones and great success, as well as married her best friend and the other half of country’s most adored couple, Blake Shelton. She also brought us the current hottest trio in music with the Pistol Annies, which is made up of Ashley Monroe and Angaleena Presley in addition to Lambert. And now, Lambert and the Annies are getting some acknowledgment from Rolling Stone.

Lambert’s album, Four The Record, is number 31 on the “50 Best Albums” list and the Pistol Annies’ album, Hell on Heels, holds the number 29 spot. Lambert’s “Mama’s Broken Heart” also was chosen as number 26 on the “50 Best Singles” list. What a way to end the year. Congratulations to Lambert, Monroe, and Presley! There surely will be more big things for them in 2012. Be ready!

The other country star to make the Rolling Stone lists is Eric Church. He had an impressive year of his own with his first number one album, Chief, as well as a “Best Country Album” nomination for the upcoming 54th Grammy Awards. Rolling Stone named Chief the 19th “Best Album of 2011″ and chose his song, “Springsteen,”  as number 30 on the “Best Singles” list. Congratulations to Eric! I am sure he will see even more success in 2012 as well.
