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!

The Grammy Awards! You never heard much about them before [France], but this year the French Daft Punk have won several Grammys in their class, so now you know what I’m going to talk to you!

January 26, marked the 56th Grammy Awards in Los Angeles, California! Each music category is represented -rock, techno, pop music, electronic music, metal, country music and many other styles!

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!

Then came the icing on the cake with the arrival on stage of a great plateau of the real stars of Country music: Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, Merle Haggard along with Blake Shelton on a medley of classics, “Highwayman”, “Okie From Muskogee”, and “Don ‘t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys”! Thrills guaranteed!

Sheryl Crow

– on the same date, the singer Sheryl Crow will introduce “Feels Like Home” a new opus of 12 completely unpublished titles, including the current single ” Easy “. She will appear on the major-label Warner Bros Records.

He would have celebrated his 82 years on September 12th of this year. I certainly want to speak about the legend Georges Jones. He left us on April 23rd of this year. A new album made up of titles which are in his archives, Georges Jones offers a gospel song album called “Amazing Grace” on September 10th.

Steve Warner

– “It Ain’ t All Bad” it is the name of the latest album from the very good author-composor-guitarist and singer Mister Steve Warner! It will be his 19th album studio.

Carrie Underwood is back on U.S. radio waves with the song “See You Again”, the fourth single from the album “Blown Away”. A real Pop track, perfectly formatted for Country radio today, it is certainly far from traditional country music, but through which Carrie’s voice shows its potential.

Speaking of the young Pop Country, Rachel Holder performs it paying tribute to the star Shania Twain. The style of the new “Five Days” recalls the Shania song!

The title is ready to invade the Top 40 Country charts soon! “Five Days” arrives this week on the U.S. Country radio waves at the national level!

Last week, the young and talented Hunter Hayes presented to the American public his brand new unreleased single “I Want Crazy” performed live during the ACM Awards in Las Vegas! It’s a catchy tune that will have you tapping your foot and the source of inspiration is more than obvious: Keith Urban!

On this new song, performed in studio, Hunter has once again demonstrated an incredible talent as it is songwriter, and acts as a multi-instrumentalist; in short, a real artist. “I Want Crazy” is his fourth single, an original song from a new album to be released!
