Taylor SwiftThe 54th annual Grammy Awards proved to be yet another year in which country music rose to prominence, holding its own--and then some!--with the pop, rock, and rap worlds. Although country was only nominated in one all-genre category this season (Best New Artist, which the Band Perry lost to alt-rock act Bon Iver), the show was packed with high-voltage performances from Nashville artists, making it a night for any country fan to revere.
If you happened to miss the telecast on Sunday night, never fear, no need to fast-forward through your DVR recording--we at Ram Country have put together all the evening's best country moments. From the red carpet arrivals, to the acceptance speeches, to the blazing performances...it's all here.
In addition to the super-big moments (Jason Aldean playing with Kelly Clarkson...Carrie Underwood with Tony Bennett...that amazing dress Taylor was wearing!), we've got some unexpected moments with folks you may not expect. Deana Carter makes her first appearance at the show in 10 years. We chat with songwriter Dave Barnes, who wrote Blake Shelton's hit "God Gave Me You." Vince Gill tells us why he likes Music's Biggest Night ("It's not the biggest stars with the biggest hits that win Grammys--I've proven that!").
Oh, and of course, how could we not include the legendary Glen Campbell doing "Rhinestone Cowboy"? Don't worry, we've got that for you as well. What a night!
