When it comes to the most awarded Grammy winning Country artist, just who could it be? Believe it or not, this Country singer has more Grammys than Beyoncé, Stevie Wonder, and U2, coming in 2nd place for the most Grammy wins ever!

So who could this artist be? Is it George Strait? Not even close. George only has 1 Grammy which he won back in 2009 for Best Country Album (Troubadour)

What about Alan Jackson? Nope. Alan only has two awards.

Carrie Underwood, perhaps? While she does have a hefty 7 Grammy’s under her belt, the record holder actually has nearly 4 times as many Grammys!

Who can forget the Dixie Chicks? Whenever these girls put out a record, the Grammys come pouring in. Even after 13 Grammy wins, these girls haven’t raked in the most.

Then there’s Vince Gill. With a whopping 20 wins, Vince has the most Grammys of any male Country singer, but not the most Grammys.

The Country artist with the most Grammy wins is none other than Alison Krauss, with an astounding 27 wins. She won her first Grammy at age 19, and has gone on to be the most awarded female in Grammy history, along with the 2nd most awarded artists of all time.

Keith Urban & Eric Church release a new single and lyric video for “Raise ‘Em Up.” The video features a mesmerizing display of fireworks and sparklers.

The original writers Tom Douglas, Jaren Johnston and Jeffrey Steele didn’t write “Raise ‘Em Up,” as a duet. It was Keith Urban who first heard the tune and wanted to sing the song with his longtime friend Eric Church.

The single was nominated for a Grammy Award, but lost to the Band Perry’s cover of “Gentle On My Mind.”

Watch & Listen to the single below:

Dierks Bentley appeared on the Ellen Show this week and delivered a heartfelt performance of his hit single ‘Say You Do.’ The Country singer and his band were set to attend the Super Bowl, but gave up their seats to appear on the show.

“We had six tickets. We were all gonna go but we’re like man, we wanna be here at the show. This is more important to us.”

Bentley is nominated for Country Album of the Year at this weekend’s Grammy Awards. We wish you the best on your journey Dierks!

Sturgill Simpson played a packed show at Madison Theater in Covington, KY last weekend, and when the crowd got out of control, the singer stopped his entire set to break up a fight happening offstage.

‘Sometimes Wine,’ was the song the band was playing when the fight broke out. Simpson was a good sport about it, trying to keep the show going. Eventually, he chose to stop the show and help settle things down.

“Hold up, hold up, hold up, hold up … YOU!” Simpson shouted at the man who started the fight. “Hey, hey, hey. Come on now, everyone came to have a good time. It doesn’t matter who started it; all that matters is that it’s over …

After cheers from the crowd, the show carried on without further mishap. Simpson has better things to worry about, including a Grammy Nomination for the ‘Metamodern Sounds in Country Music’ record, and a new contract with Atlantic Records.

Hat’s off to you Sturgil for getting things under control, and protecting your fans! Watch the video below.
