The 57th Annual Grammy Awards – Winners! +recap

brandy clark dwight yoakam grammys

It was a night of performances and music celebration that nearly reached the four hour mark just on the main telecast; the pre-telecast, or the “premiere ceremony” as it is now called – lasted for around three hours and the red carpet was active for about six. In all, the academy honoured artists of all shapes, sizes and genres; not least of all country, Americana and roots music, which was much the talk of social media. With early winners (and losers) announced during the premiere ceremony in Best Country Song, Best Country Solo Performance and Best Country Duo/Group Performance, as well as all of the other folk and roots categories, it was left to the anticipated Best Country Album award to light up the main stage. Still, country had plenty of influence during the show, as Miranda Lambert performed ‘Little Red Wagon’, Eric Church performed ‘Give Me Back My Hometown’, and Brandy Clark shone on the mid-audience stage with Dwight Yoakam on her beautiful ballad ‘Hold My Hand’. Showing up most of the other vocalists on the night, let’s hope that the exposure leads her to the fame and industry standing that she deserves. When it came to the mainstream awards, Sam Smith absolutely cleared up with many touting him as the male Adele (seriously, think about it, how similar?! It’s scary), picking up awards for Album of the Year, Record of the Year, and more. Below are all the country and roots winners. Enjoy!

Glen Campbell ‘I’m Not Gonna Miss You’ – Single Review

‘I’m Not Gonna Miss You’ was recorded in 2013 for the documentary ‘Glen Campbell: I’ll Be Me’, which explores Alzheimer’s disease and how the family deal with it whilst on Glen Campbell’s multi-date ‘Goodbye Tour’. Having such a severe case of the disease, the recording process was difficult, but was managed with the help of Campbell’s old session musicians The Wrecking Crew, who would help bring out sparks of recognition from Campbell, before he would sing a few lines of the song.

The Band Perry ‘Gentle On My Mind’ – Single Review

maxresdefault

‘Gentle On My Mind’ was originally recorded by Glen Campbell in 1967, receiving 4 Grammys for Best Male Country & Western Solo Vocal Performance and Best Country & Western Recording for Campbell, and Best Folk Performance and Best Country & Western Song for the writer and original performer John Hartford. It is always hard to cover such a massive hit, and I was very interested to hear how The Band Perry would stamp their energetic style of country onto such a stripped back song.
