~ Hillary Scott & The Scott Family ~
As I mentioned on Instagram, this weeks #NMM will come in three separate shots. The first is already posted, "A Valentine from a Slow Heart" and it is our regularly scheduled New Music Monday. Today, this post, is our special Grammy 2017 recap. Wednesday will be our Writers Wednesday post. This week is a busy week for The Faith Journals so, lets get to it......
I wanna start my Grammy recap with where else, but the Red Carpet. I LOVE that Brothers Osborne had their mother as one of the members of their posy for the night. Also included was Jons significant other and fellow artist, Lucy Silvas who did some live streaming via Instagram from the Red Carpet. A lot of artists will live stream or have someone live streaming for them at events like these and it is totally worth following them if even just for the one night. Though I'm unsure why you'd follow someone you're a fan of just for a evening, LoL!!! Anyway, the guys didn't take home gold, but I think they are winners because they stocked their entourage with family. Call me cheesy, but I would think that this one of the coolest parts of all that is show biz. Getting to share it with people who have helped get you to the big time.
Speaking of family, Hillary Scott from Lady Antebellum and her family, The Scott Family, won TWO Grammy's before the live broad cast. With my pre-grammy predictions I got some write and I got some wrong, but this one I should've put some money down on. I LOVE "Thy Will" and am glad to see this project get attention and awards.
Another bet I should have made was for Best Country Album which went to my predicted winner, Sturgill Simpson. This is another award handed out pre-telecast, but I am stoked none the less. I totally think that "A Sailors Guide to Earth" deserved this acknowledgement of a nomination and a win. Hopefully country music specific award shows and radio will start paying a little bit more attention to Simpson now that he owns some gold.
