Last.fm Trends: Gretchen Wilson Would Love To Be A Winner
(CBS Music Staff) – The year 2011 sees former winner Gretchen Wilson continuing her Grammy history with a nomination for the album track “I’d Love To Be Your Last” in the category of Best Female Country Vocal Performance. She hasn’t been nominated since 2006, so Last.fm Trends sees if this could be time for another win.
The track’s also up for Best Country Song, although Wilson didn’t contribute to its writing, unlike 2005′s “Redneck Woman” – which was nominated for Best Country Song and won Best Female Country Vocal Performance.
When we looked at this year’s nominees she was bringing up the rear in terms of listeners, and this hasn’t yet changed: the track was her 37th most popular last week. “Redneck Woman” has a comparative 184,778 scrobbles from 60,018 listeners – but this was a debut single, not an album track.
Wilson’s Grammy history is impressive, even if she’s only bagged one win. In addition to that win, 2005-2006 saw her up for Best New Artist, two Best Country Songs, two Best Country Albums, Best Country Collaboration w/ Vocals and another Best Female Country Vocal Performance. On her third nomination for the same award, the past seems to bode well for her chances.
