Chad’s Grammy Awards Preview

Music’s biggest night is coming up Sunday!  It’s the 54th annual GRAMMY Awards and this year’s show is going to be country strong.  Not only are country artists nominated in some big categories, the list of performers is loaded up with some of country’s superstars.  Read on and I’ll tell you who’s nominated and who’s singing live during the show.

A few years back the GRAMMY’s really scaled back on the number of categories they give awards for.  And, consequently, country music basically has four major categories.  And here are the nominees in each.
