    I'm just happy that Carrie always seems to have material to submit year in, year out. Carrie and her team are very consistent.

    Edit- I just added a partial list from Pulse music boards. They only have a few of Carrie's, but I think it is safe to assume she submitted both SYA and TBC for both Country Song and Country Solo performance. What is unclear is what she submitted for Record/Song all genre, and which video for Short Form Video. Hope she went with TBC for video even though SYA is great too. But TBC was a masterpiece.

    I think SYA has a better chance of winning than TBC.

    ^TBC is much more artistic and critically acclaimed then SYA. i love both- but to me- TBC would more likely appeal to Grammy voters.

    Depends on the category. For video, SYA would be the best bet. Its one of those videos that voters seem to love.

    Song I would go with TBC

    Although I would personally root for TBC, I actually think there are several reasons SYA could pull out a nomination/win just as easily.

    1. Grammy voters have rewarded Carrie in the past for songs that have gone largely unrecognized by Nashville awards voters, or those outside her core fanbase (MS, TH).
    So, I don't think it would be completely uncharacteristic for them to reward a song that doesn't have as much support behind it, because Grammy voters don't always go with the popular choice.
    2. Grammy voters seem to overwhelmingly favor her softer ballads/vocals, and SYA does fit in this category, in terms of vocal performance. It's also got a pop appeal, which could appeal to many voters who are on the fence about Carrie.
    3. There's really no way of knowing how the voters will choose the winner. Everyone thought Carrie was the CLEAR winner for a Grammy with JAD, and yet she lost that year and managed to pull off 3 wins with MS, TH, and ITYS, which are 3 songs many fans thought stood no chance, against the previous singles.
    4. Voters have rewarded Carrie for traditional country (ITYS), massive hits (BHC, JTTW), and songs that were not as well-received (MS), so I don't think there's a reason to count anything out when it comes to Grammy voters.

    They seem to love/appreciate a broad range of styles when it comes to Carrie's vocal performances, and they've rewarded her for songs that have meant a great deal to her, but have not gotten recognition otherwise. It's pretty amazing she has been recognized with such a diverse group of nominations, and I think that in itself shows the amount of respect/reverence she has had with Grammy's voters since the begging of her career. These voters are not people looking at stats or popularity, but rather voting on who they feel is most deserving. They don't go for the same style because of politics, and, again, I think it speaks volumes Carrie has been nominated for (and won) a Grammy ever year since 2005.

    She had a stigma coming off Idol, and yet Grammy's voters were willing to recognize her from the begging. Considering that the award love has basically died off from within country music, it's incredible to think the Grammy's, the pinnacle of music, have never stopped supporting Carrie, despite the stylistic changes and different artists that have come and gone. She seems to have a great relationship with the Grammy community, too, because she's nominated, and has been one of the only country artists consistently asked to perform for the telecast.

    Carrie has been extremely fortunate to have been invited to perform and have so many nominations/wins when it comes to the Grammy's. I think it shows they have the utmost respect for her, and she has a great relationship with them. She's performed numerous tributes, which also shows voters put her at the top of the pack when they choose to honor somebody. Carrie has been lucky to have been recognized for a wide array of songs, and the fact that she performs (to me), just shows how consistent she is as an artist and ratings draw.

    She's got the best of both worlds; the producers consistently nominate her and ask her to perform, and she receives recognition for material that means a lot to her, whereas she might not otherwise.

    The CMA/ACM voters should take notes; the Grammy voters appear to know what a gem Carrie is, on every level. How ironic she's been recognized by the pinnacle of music awards shows for EIGHT years, but her own peers won't even bother to give her a CMA nomination for ETOY or album.

    Carrie winning 6 Grammy's in 8 years is basically the ultimate kiss-off to those voters who don't recognize her otherwise. Not only can she win without them, she can consistently win the most important genre award in the game.

    You go, girl.

    I don't think they submitted anything for the all-genre categories. Neither 2BC or SYA are as big as BA, which wasn't even the clear winner in its two country categories last year and I don't know that it was submitted for the all-genre categories. I like SYA more than 2BC, but I feel like the latter has a better chance of being nominated.

    That being said I think it's interesting that Miranda/Kacey's team are submitting Mama's Broken Heart and Merry Go Round to the overall Song of the Year category, both of which did nothing outside of country. Though it'll be interesting to see how much of Kacey's critical acclaim will translate into Grammy noms, since it's clearly working for her in the country award shows. At this point I wouldn't be surprised if Merry Go Round actually gets an overall Song of the Year nomination.

    TBC is probably her most critically acclaimed single of all time. Grammy voters will get behind that one. It'll be tough to beat "Merry Go Round" though.

They don't go for the same style because of politics, and, again, I think it speaks volumes Carrie has been nominated for (and won) a Grammy ever year since 2005.

    She had a stigma coming off Idol, and yet Grammy's voters were willing to recognize her from the begging. Considering that the award love has basically died off from within country music, it's incredible to think the Grammy's, the pinnacle of music, have never stopped supporting Carrie, despite the stylistic changes and different artists that have come and gone. She seems to have a great relationship with the Grammy community, too, because she's nominated, and has been one of the only country artists consistently asked to perform for the telecast.

    Carrie has been extremely fortunate to have been invited to perform and have so many nominations/wins when it comes to the Grammy's. I think it shows they have the utmost respect for her, and she has a great relationship with them. She's performed numerous tributes, which also shows voters put her at the top of the pack when they choose to honor somebody. Carrie has been lucky to have been recognized for a wide array of songs, and the fact that she performs (to me), just shows how consistent she is as an artist and ratings draw.

    She's got the best of both worlds; the producers consistently nominate her and ask her to perform, and she receives recognition for material that means a lot to her, whereas she might not otherwise.

    The CMA/ACM voters should take notes; the Grammy voters appear to know what a gem Carrie is, on every level. How ironic she's been recognized by the pinnacle of music awards shows for EIGHT years, but her own peers won't even bother to give her a CMA nomination for ETOY or album.

    Carrie winning 8 Grammy's in 8 years is basically the ultimate kiss-off to those voters who don't recognize her otherwise. Not only can she win without them, she can consistently win the most important genre award in the game.

    You go, girl.

    the highlighted part...??
    Carrie won for JTTW , BHC ,LN and BA.She never won a Grammy for TH or MS.

    Grammy does love her and with the sheer overall awfulness of country radio over the last year she's a highlight and I wouldn't be surprised to see her nominated again for country solo performance....for TBC.:-)

    1. Grammy voters have rewarded Carrie in the past for songs that have gone largely unrecognized by Nashville awards voters, or those outside her core fanbase (MS, TH).
    So, I don't think it would be completely uncharacteristic for them to reward a song that doesn't have as much support behind it, because Grammy voters don't always go with the popular choice.
    2. Grammy voters seem to overwhelmingly favor her softer ballads/vocals, and SYA does fit in this category, in terms of vocal performance. It's also got a pop appeal, which could appeal to many voters who are on the fence about Carrie.
    3. There's really no way of knowing how the voters will choose the winner. Everyone thought Carrie was the CLEAR winner for a Grammy with JAD, and yet she lost that year and managed to pull off 3 wins with MS, TH, and ITYS, which are 3 songs many fans thought stood no chance, against the previous singles.
    4. Voters have rewarded Carrie for traditional country (ITYS), massive hits (BHC, JTTW), and songs that were not as well-received (MS), so I don't think there's a reason to count anything out when it comes to Grammy voters.

    They seem to love/appreciate a broad range of styles when it comes to Carrie's vocal performances, and they've rewarded her for songs that have meant a great deal to her, but have not gotten recognition otherwise.

    Great Post!!

    It's important (and wonderful) to remember that Grammy voters vote with a much broader ear toward what they consider "the best".
    Though they are frought with politics as well, the voting pool is deeper and more diverse and it is harder to get them to vote along "label lines" or "marketing lines" or "career lines".

    Ironically, it is also harder to get them to vote "within a genre" very well either. And I actually think this has helped both Taylor and Carrie quite a bit.
    It seems if the submission are in "country" the voters have no problem classifying it as such and judging it as such. And in the end you seem to end up with what the voters thought was best among the group.

    Much much different that what is going on today in Nashville!

    Wow - two Brandy Clark songs that they think have a chance for overall Song of the Year, not just Country Song. That's ambitious, but I think she's been behind a significant part of the recent interesting developments on Mainstream radio. (I really hope Carrie writes some songs with her for her next Album!)

    Its like a school district voting for what is the best school. Lots of politics and handshaking and insider-intentional voting can lead to the school that the district "wants to win" (for whatever reason) winning.

    But then if the vote went statewide, it would be almost impossible to assume or believe that same school would actually win.

    Much different results would occure simply based on the diversity of the voting pool. And it is likely that the "most deserving" school would end up winning as opposed to the school the original district "wanted to win".

    Nashville is small enough still to manufacture this entire image it has. It always has.
    But the Grammys, representing the entire music industry, is harder to predict and to "manipulate" if you are Nashville looking to promote a specific product.

    2 observations -
    very happy to see LeAnn submitting nominations. wouldn't mind if she won an award or two
    very annoyed (although i shouldn't be surprised) that Swift is submitting herself for Pop awards.
