Tanya Tucker Leads 2020 Country Grammy Nominees

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.

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