    Country Universe Grammy Picks! :)

    There are some great Carrie comments here. They predict her to win country performance! YAY!

    I am choosing not to post the Taste of Country picks as they pick Blake to beat Carrie, and if that happens, I will puke.

    Check out Country Universe's Staff Picks and Predictions for Sunday night's Grammy Awards. http://wp.me/pmBbk-6bJ

    Best Country Solo Performance:
    Should Win:

    • Dierks Bentley, “Home” - Leeann
    • Eric Church, “Springsteen”
    • Ronnie Dunn, “Cost of Livin’”- Dan, Sam, Jonathan
    • Hunter Hayes, “Wanted”
    • Blake Shelton, “Over”
    • Carrie Underwood, “Blown Away” - Kevin, Ben, Tara

    Will Win:

    • Dierks Bentley, “Home”
    • Eric Church, “Springsteen” - Leeann
    • Ronnie Dunn, “Cost of Livin’”
    • Hunter Hayes, “Wanted”
    • Blake Shelton, “Over”
    • Carrie Underwood, “Blown Away” - Kevin, Dan, Sam, Jonathan, Ben, Tara

    Kevin: I don’t think it’s even close. Underwood’s performance blows all the competition away.
    Ben: It’s hard to choose between Dunn and Underwood, but for me the latter has the edge. Underwood has always had a strong, powerful voice, but “Blown Away” finds her using it more effectively than ever before. It’s as if she’s finally realized that she’s capable of more than just power notes – that she can use her voice to imbue added layers of emotion and complexity to an already striking song. At any rate, I think she’s the most likely winner – with Underwood’s Grammy record, this category is her turf.
    Dan: In my dreams, Dunn takes it for a terrific single that flew sadly under the radar. But Underwood’s performance is one of the best of her career so far, and this will be her most deserved win in this category.
    Jonathan: Ignoring the fact (as the voters did) that it should’ve been eligible last year, Dunn’s graceful, understated turn on the best-written song here is easily the class of this field. But if Underwood could beat far more deserving competition to win for “Last Name,” there’s no reason to think she can’t win again for something significantly better, especially when she stands out even further as the only woman nominated against five men. Any other outcome would be a huge surprise.
    Leeann: I’d be happy with a win for Dierks Bentley, Ronnie Dunn or Eric Church, but I feel Church has had a great year, though I wouldn’t be surprised if young Hunter Hayes took this one in the end.
    Sam: Sorry Blake, but the Grammy Awards doesn’t have the same incentive to heap awards on you as half of country music’s top power duo that the CMAs and ACMs have. I don’t think any of the other nominees have the same visibility as Carrie Underwood.
    Tara: “Cost of Livin’” is far and away the best song in this category, but Underwood’s performance is the most intriguing. I’m not as convinced as the others that Underwood’s a shoo-in, but she’s my best guess.

    Totally should have watermarked that; it's showing up everywhere. It looks way too dark when it's an icon though lol

    Very happy with the prediction.
    And somehow not surprised that both women seem to have a real disconnect with Carrie winning (one unwilling to even say her name).

    The one that didn't choose Carrie usually leans more traditional in her favorites. She's usually pretty positive with Carrie's live performances though.

    If you are referring to Leeann who doesn't mention Carrie she does like Carrie and has been favorable toward her

    Love what Kevin said about the Country Album category:

    Kevin: I only find the Johnson and Hayes sets interesting. I think Hayes’ higher profile will help him win. Underwood’s lack of a nomination is a shame, but also makes the competition a bit more unpredictable.

    I still don't understand why BA the album did not get a album nomination. It would be interesting if Hunter did win.

    nahh it's not a big deal; just wondering why when they should know it's not the official cover :s

    It's actually the second time they haven't used the official cover:
    http://www.countryuniverse.net/2012/...od-blown-away/ (click the little picture icon, they used the wrong one)

    as did this site:

    again, it doesn't bother me, I just don't get it ;p
