Hello! My name is Alison. I’ve been passionate about country music since I was very young. I got to know music by following styles – rock, southern rock and the country music styles of today – and by cruising through the USA. I’ve also bought a lot of CDs! In recent years, I started broadcasting the “Les News de Nashville” on the Big Cactus Country presented by my friend Johnny Da Piedade. You can read my blog post on the Big Cactus Country site as well as here on the HorizonVU Music Blog and SHOP!

But as what we’re interested in, of course, is country and the artist who stands out in 2014, is the singer Kacey Musgraves. She walked away with two Grammys, one for Best Country Album, “Same Trailer Different Park”, but also for Best Country Song with the title “Merry Go ‘Round “!

The former lead singer of rock band, Hootie & the Blowfish, Darius Rucker, won the award for Best Country Solo Performance with the hit “Wagon Wheel” and even the duo The Civil Wars who are husband and wife in life, walked away with the prize, the Best Country Duo, with the single “From This Valley”. Forget disputes that threatened to ruin their careers.

For the Americana part, actor-turned singer and musician Steve Martin accompanied by Edie Brickell took the Grammy for Best American Roots Song with “Love Has Come For You”, a song in the same style as the superb duo Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell who took the prize for Best Americana Album for “Old Yellow Moon”.

The other Texan, Miranda Lambert, was presented on stage with Billie Joe Armstrong, who is none other than the singer and guitarist of rock band Green Day. They all paid tribute to Phil Everly of the Everly Brothers duo who passed away on January 3 with the song “When Will I Be Loved.” Young Hunter Hayes also took the opportunity to interpret his new novel single “Invisible”, Keith Urban appeared live with Gary Park Junior, and Taylor Swift appeared alone at the piano!
