Congrats to BNA/NASHVILLE star KENNY CHESNEY, who garnered his first-ever GRAMMY nomination. CHESNEY is up for "Best Country Vocal Performance, Collaboration" for "Shiftwork," his duet with MCA/NASHVILLE's GEORGE STRAIT.
KENNY said: “I'm not gonna say that I gave up or didn't care about it, because this is an award given by your peers in all genres of music … the people who make it. You get to a point where you realize you can't force it or get them to listen if they're not there, because that's not how this works … and you just have to accept that. But that said, I'm really honored to finally be nominated.”
The GRAMMYs will be handed out FEBRUARY 8th on CBS. For a complete list of nominees, visit www.grammy.com.
