Eric Church, Tyler Childers, Ashley McBryde All Receive GRAMMY Nominations

The GRAMMYs just released their full list of nominees, and many of our favorites including Eric Church, Tyler Childers, and Ashley McBryde received VERY deserving nominations. And of course, the great Tanya Tucker is leading the pack with 4 nominations this year.

There will be more to talk about here, but Tyler Childers not being in the Best Country Album category over Thomas Rhett is absolutely batshit fucking nuts, to put it politely. Rhett put out good pop album. Quite frankly, there were many more deserving COUNTRY albums that could have been in there. More on that later.
