What an amazing time at the "BIGGEST NIGHT IN MUSIC" - The 2015 #GRAMMYs ! Here's a bit of a re-cap on the goings on behind the scenes with #redcarpetradio and #NASHtv LIVE from the Staples Center and NOKIA Plaza in Los Angeles, CA!
I had the chance Thursday to sit down with a leading lady in Country Music - Grammy winner and 2015 Grammy nominee, LEE ANN WOMACK! Her hair is everything! LOVE! And just out of curiosity, why does my waist come to everyone else's bust line?!
GET IT GIRL!!! Go Miranda Lambert!!! This country diva took home the coveted Grammy for BEST Country Album and gave a KILLER LIVE performance of her new single, "Little Red Wagon" on the CBS telecast last night! I talked to Miranda on Friday morning on #redcarpetradio and she said the secret to her style through the years is that she has learned to dress for her shape, not her dress size! #GIRLPOWER #beYOUtiful !
BIG CONGRATS to THE BAND PERRY on becoming GRAMMY WINNERS for the very first time! They won for Best Country Duo/Group Performance category for Glen Campbell's "Gentle On My Mind". They stopped by to talk with me about when they first remembered dreaming of a GRAMMY... "It was 8-10 years ago and we were watching Alicia Keys perform on the broadcast and we looked at each other and said, I don't know when or how, but we've got to get here! We are so honored!"
THE MAN OF THE HOUR... SAM SMITH. What a night for him. You get your first Grammy presented by none other than Taylor Swift and you go on to win 4 Grammy's TOTAL! WOW Congrats, Sam... well deserved. I have enjoyed your album as part of the sound track to my life in 2014! Can't wait for more music!
Some of the entertainment personalities and stars that sat down with us...
Big Sean (Ariana Grande's BF) and BASTILLE were two of my favorite interviews!
Got to hang at Charli_XCX's Grammy party on Friday night at the SOHO House in LA.
Had an interviews with Charli_XCX on Saturday. She's SO talented - singing, writing, and producing all her own music!!!
Sleepy Hollow's Headless Horseman played by Neil Jackson & FUN's (& Lena Dunham's BF) Jack Antonhoff.
The BEAUTIFUL Deborah Cox & Fall Out Boy, Pete Wentz.
Renee Lawless of the Haves & Have Nots on OWN and Andy Grammer #gottakeepyourheadup !
Christina Milian - love her! Hailee Steinfeld from Pitch Perfect 2.
One of my favorite interviews over the weekend was LECRAE. He took home his 2nd GRAMMY EVER for BEST Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song for his track "Messengers".
He celebrated Jesus with his win saying, "You can't celebrate gifts without celebrating the giver of all gifts."
Overall I was thrilled with the entire show. Things this year were more uplifting and honoring to music as a craft and as a whole in my opinion. The collaborations were SO beautiful and simplified in terms of set construction and "the to-do" of typical Grammy performances (with maybe the exception of SIA & Madonna).
I loved Beyonce's acceptance speech and that she thanked God, husband, family, and fans in that order and her performance of "Precious Lord, Take My Hand" - the Gospel standard written by the Reverend Thomas A. Dorsey was breathtaking!
