Grammys 2016

I’m sure most of you watched the Grammys. And to say the least, I don’t think it was the most exciting event, but I have to admit. But I’am  really happy with the majority of the rockstars who actually won awards.

I don’t remember the whole list, but I’m extremely excited that Chris Stapleton and Kendrick Lamar won big! Good for those guys, they deserve it!

But just in case you live under a rock, here are the best and worst moments from 2016 Grammys in the link below.

I’m extremely happy about the nominees for the women’s country category. Especially Kacey Musgraves and Ashley Monroe.

I wrote a blog about Kacey a while back, but I absolutely love her music. She’s down to earth Texas country. She writes these stories that are relatable. It’s simple and beautiful.

Ashley is a quote a quote “newer artist”. She’s really not, she’s been around, but she’s finally getting the recognition she deserves. Her song “If love was Fair” is amazing. And as I’m writing, I’m listening to it on repeat. Check her out!

Grammys

Most of the time, I’m 100% behind the Grammys. I think it’s a great award for any producer, songwriter, musician, artist to receive.

This year, I thought was kind of a let down. In more ways than one.

I think the best way to put it, it wasn’t exciting. It was pretty predictable but I just thought it wasn’t memorable. Maybe I am being harsh, I’m not trying to be. I also think, there should have been other artists in nominated in certain categories, but again, who am I to judge. I’m just a blogger from Wisconsin.

Bob Lefsetz has the best music blog, I’ve ever read. This past blog, he wrote about the Grammys and the best thing he said was,

I don’t know where to go from here. Kill the Walking Dead”. 

Let’s be honest, I’ve saw more people post about Walking Dead on Facebook then about the Grammys. Twitter was all about the Grammys, but I think everyone was ready for Kayne to do something drastic this year. But seriously, if the Grammys are competing against the Walking Dead, I think more people would rather watch zombies.

My point: I really hope that the people that receive their Grammys really do earn it. Because at the end of the day, it’s an achievement that many people will never get the chance to have.
