Here Are The Nominees For Best Country Album | 2020 GRAMMYs
The 2020 GRAMMYs are just around the corner, and now the nominations are in for the coveted honor of Best Country Album. While we'll have to wait until the 62nd GRAMMY Awards air on CBS on Jan. 26 to find out who will win, let's take a look at which albums have been nominated for Best Country Album.
Desperate Man – Eric Church
True to its name, Eric Church's sixth studio album came from a dark place. In the aftermath of the 2017 shooting at a country music festival in Las Vegas, Church wrote, recorded delivered his most outspoken work yet with Desperate Man. The now nine-time GRAMMY nominee is also up for Best Country Song this year for "Some Of It" and is seeking his first career GRAMMY win.
Stronger Than The Truth - Reba McEntire
Reba returned to her own strength and truth this year with Stronger Than The Truth, her (quite impressive) 33rd studio ablum. In a career that has blossomed onto TV, film and even the Broadway stage, McEntire's true calling has always been country music, and she's now seeking the fourth GRAMMY win of her career.
Interstate Gospel – Pistol Annies
Country supergroup Pistol Annies arrived as a breath of fresh country air in 2011 with their debut album, Hell On Heels. The trio of Miranda Lambert, Ashley Monroe and Angaleena Presley, each accomplished artists in their own right, earne their first nomination as a group for their third LP, Interstate Gospel. Lambert is also up for Best Country Song at this year's GRAMMYs for "It All Comes Out In The Wash" from her latest, Wildcard.
Center Point Road – Thomas Rhett
Named after a road in his hometown of Hendersonville, Tenn., Thomas Rhett's fourth album manages a delicate balance between nostalgic and new. Center Point Road debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and earned Rhett his third career GRAMMY nomination.
While I'm Livin' – Tanya Tucker
Country legend Tanya Tucker delighted fans with her 25th studio album and first in a decade with While I'm Livin'. Produced by Brandi Carlile and Shooter Jennings, the album also earned Tucker three additional nods for "Bring My Flowers Now" for Song Of The Year, Best Counry Solo Performance and Best Country Song this year, bringing her career GRAMMY nominations tally to 14.
