“I knew there was something special about this song [“People Are Crazy”] the second I heard it. You know, it just had such a special feel and what a great story. I’m so glad that the Recording Academy heard what I did. This is such an honor to be nominated with two amazing songwriters like Bobby Braddock and Troy Jones.” ~ Billy Currington

“It’s amazing to me that a song that didn’t even hit the Top 20 is nominated for a Grammy. Maybe people really do appreciate music that is raw and real. ‘High Cost of Living’ is about as real as it gets.” ~ Jamey Johnson

“I’m so excited to have three Grammy nominations. My career has been full of surprises and here is another. What an honor! I’m in Vegas right now so there will be celebration.” ~ George Strait

“I’m very proud to work with Tony Brown, Chuck Ainlay, Waylon Payne and all the musicians that played on Call Me Crazy. I’m especially honored to have these nominations as they are voted on by peers and in a time where so much great music is being made. It’s nice to know that what we’re doing is relevant.” ~ Lee Ann Womack

“Some things are just magic and you know it. I knew the first time I heard Mac sing ['Down The Road'] on his Simple Life record – the same place I heard 'Back Where I Come From.' It gets inside and lets you understand everything about life you don't even realize. So it makes sense the Grammy people – who're from all musical genres – would recognize this song and the heart Mac brings… I'm honored to share this with my friend.” ~ Kenny Cheseny

“I wrote and recorded Defying Gravity to touch upon the power of the human spirit. I had no idea that it would've connected in the way that it did. We saw it night after night on the Escape Together Tour and to now end the year with these nominations is pure magic.” ~ Keith Urban

“I started freaking out and jumping up and down. I honestly never would have predicted this – eight nominations! I'm ecstatic, and blown away and so, so thankful.” ~ Taylor Swift
