Stars are continuing to react to the news that their work has received GRAMMY consideration after nominations were announced last Wednesday. Kenny Chesney  and Grace Potter’s “You and Tequila” is nominated for Best Country Duo/Group Performance and Best Country Song. The nominations come nearly 10 years after Matraca Berg and Deana Carter  penned the tune.
“As a songwriter, I’m always happy to see great songs get their due and I’m happy for Matraca and Deana that this song is getting the respect it deserves,” Kenny said. “I’m also thrilled to have recorded this song with Grace Potter, who is so talented and be a part of her first GRAMMY nomination.
Colt Ford was ecstatic to learn that “Dirt Road Anthem,” co-written by himself and Brantley Gilbert  and performed by Jason Aldean , received a nod for Best Country Solo Performance. The song isn’t a standard country hit, which made the nomination that much sweeter.
“I’m blown away by the impact of ‘Dirt Road Anthem,’” Colt said. “This song has been so special for Brantley, Jason, and me. Who would have thought that this song would make the whole world wanna ride down a dirt road? It took an artist with no fear, like Jason, to take a chance on this song.”
George Strait also received a GRAMMY nomination. His latest album, Here For A Good Time, is up for is up for Best Country Album. The nomination marks the fourth album in a row from King George that has resulted in a GRAMMY nomination.
The 54th Annual GRAMMY Awards will be held on “GRAMMY Sunday,” Feb. 12, 2012, at STAPLES Center in Los Angeles and once again will be broadcast live on CBS from 8 – 11:30 p.m. (ET/PT).
