Tanya Tucker Leads 2020 Country Grammy Nominees

by

Nominees for the 62nd Grammy Awards were announced Wednesday morning, with Tanya Tucker leading among country performers and Eric Church, Ashley McBryde, and Dan + Shay all picking up multiple nominations in the country categories.

Tucker’s 2019 album While I’m Livin’ was a big favorite for voters, earning the singer a Best Country Album nomination. The album’s centerpiece, “Bring My Flowers Now,” found its way into multiple fields, including Best Country Solo Performance and Best Country Song, a nomination Tucker shares with her co-writers Brandi Carlile, Tim Hanseroth, and Phil Hanseroth.

“Bring My Flowers Now” also received an all-genre nomination for Song of the Year, where it will compete with entries including Billie Eilish’s “Bad Guy,” Taylor Swift’s “Lover,” and Lizzo’s “Truth Hurts.”

Carlile, who led nominations at last year’s Awards, came away with three more this time: two for her work on Tucker’s “Bring My Flowers Now” and one for Best Country Duo/Group Performance nod for her Maren Morris collaboration “Common.”

Billy Ray Cyrus also received three nominations, all outside the country fields, for his appearance on Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road.”
