    It’s sad what qualifies as music these days

    I don’t really get all the country categories when country has it’s own award show? I never see a ‘best R&B’ category at the CMAs?

      I bet you don’t see “Best Country Vocal” at the BET Hip-Hop awards either. To obtain a Grammy award is the ultimate in recognition from the music industry. The “complete” list provided at this web page merely scratches the surface of the Grammy awards presented each year.

      Grammies are primarily earned and awarded for creation of a variety of different kinds of sound recordings, from pop to jazz to classical music and from spoken word to comedy to childrens recordings. They are awarded to performers, recordings, performing groups, corporations, composers, producers, engineers, businessmen, and a host of others not in the limelight. Awards are not given just for recordings and recorded material; they range into many other aspects of the recording industry, from production to business to technology.

      Grammy awards have been given since 1958, while the CMA awards only from 1966 and the multiple other music awards are younger than this. So where do you suggest we draw the line? One award per year per person? Per group? Who cares if someone wins (earns) a Grammy, CMA award and every other award given by their peers?
