Country went to L.A. and came back with Grammy awards. Taylor Swift’s song “Mean” claimed two, Best Country Solo Performance and Best Country Song. Barton Hollow (The Civil Wars) walked away with Best Country Duo/Group Performance. Lady A was awarded Best Country Album for Own The Night.
Not only did country win, they also gave awesome perfomances. The Band Perry and Blake Shelton performed a tribute Glen Campbell. TBP sang “Gentle On My Mind”, while Blake sang “Southern Nights”. The 75 year old Campbell sang “Rhinestone Cowboy” and showed no signs of struggles with Alzhimer’s Disease, working the stage like the audience at the Staples Center and viewers at home were tuned in to see him — and only him. He danced and skipped across the stage, singing a song that sounded more like advice to the new generation than ever before.
Jason Aldean and Kelly Clarkson also performed their duet “Dont You Wanna Stay”.
