The Grammys 2023: Best Country Song

Standard

Another category in which I hadn’t heard the songs until yesterday.

“Circles Around This Town,” Ryan Hurd, Julia Michaels, Maren Morris & Jimmy Robbins, songwriters; performed by Maren Morris:

“Doin’ This,” Luke Combs, Drew Parker & Robert Williford, songwriters; performed by Luke Combs:

“I Bet You Think About Me,” (Taylor’s Version), (From the Vault), Lori McKenna & Taylor Swift, songwriters, performed by Taylor Swift. This video features Chris Stapleton.

“If I Was a Cowboy,” Jesse Frasure & Miranda Lambert, songwriters: performed by Miranda Lambert:

“I’ll Love You Till the Day I Die,” Rodney Crowell & Chris Stapleton, songwriters; performed by Willie Nelson:

“’Til You Can’t,” Matt Rogers & Ben Stennis, songwriters; performed by Cody Johnson:

I liked all of these songs fine, but “’Til You Can’t” reached out and grabbed me, and brought a tear to my eyes. I love the message, the lyrics, the melody, the soft instrumental accompaniment, and the performance. I hope “’Til You Can’t” gets the Grammy.

Now it’s your turn. Did one of these songs grab you? Which one do you think is the Best Country Song, and why? Share in the comments below.

  1. You ask a hard question….  I love Luke Combs and “Til You Can’t” is a favorite when it comes on the radio.  I didn’t know the two women’s songs!!  But being from Texas, I am not sure that I can vote against Willy Nelson!!   His sound hasn’t changed in 40 years!!
