article imageOp-Ed: 2014 Grammy predictions for 'Best Country Song'

By Markos Papadatos     Dec 26, 2013 in Entertainment
There are five country songs vying for the 2014 Grammy award for "Best Country Song." This is a songwriter's award, where the Grammy will go to the writer(s) that penned the tune.
This year's nominees include Taylor Swift for "Begin Again," Lee Brice's "I Drive Your Truck," Miranda Lambert's "Mama's Broken Heart," Kacey Musgraves' "Merry Go 'Round," and Blake Shelton's "Mine Would Be You."
Who Should Win: Lyrically, my two favorite songs in this category are "I Drive Your Truck" and "Mine Would Be You," but neither of them were penned by the actual artists (Lee Brice or Blake Shelton). If it were up to me, I would probably give the Grammy to "I Drive Your Truck," due to its powerhouse message behind it and since it is a really moving tune.
Who Will Win: This category will most definitely be a popularity contest, where Taylor Swift's "Begin Again" will prevail. Her song crossed over into the pop music world, where it landed in the Top 10 of both the Billboard Hot 100 charts, as well as the Billboard Hot Country Airplay charts, so many more voters will be familiar with her single over the other nominees, making her the front-runner for the win.
