Trends: Willie Nelson’s On Grammy Road Again

By CBS Music Staff

Country icon Willie Nelson could get his 10th Grammy win this year, with a Best Americana Album nomination for latest album Country Music.

With over eighty studio albums since 1962, Nelson’s still going strong – but which era is most loved by fans? Trends is looking at his scrobbles to find out.

The nomination for Best Americana Album proves the diversity of his career: at last year’s Grammys, American Classic and collaborative album Willie And The Wheel were up for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album and Best Americana Album respectively. His duet with Norah Jones “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” was nominated for Best Pop Collaboration With Vocals, and has reached #11 in his chart for the last six months.

Looking at the top of that chart, most popular track “On The Road Again” has 434,912 scrobbles from 155,410 listeners, and won Best Country Song in 1980. Country Music‘s most popular track “Man With the Blues” has a relatively small 6,030 scrobbles from 2,978 listeners, but the Americana category is much more niche than his Pop and Country awards. The Grammy board is still taking notice of a living legend who has only become more prolific in the twelve years since his Lifetime Achievement Award. Trends is bringing you news and profiles from all Grammy nominees as we lead up to the ceremony. Don’t forget to watch on Feb. 13, 8 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
