Along with Miranda Lambert’s near misses and Carrie Underwood’s impressive past, Jewel’s sole nomination is in a category of strong performers. Last.fm Trends looks at her scrobbles to see if she could make the cut.
“Satisfied” hails from seventh studio album Sweet and Wild, and hasn’t got the listenership of classic hits such as “Foolish Games,” one of her two Best Female Pop Vocal Performance nominees with 812,853 scrobbles from 199,618 listeners.
Along with her Best New Artist nomination, she’s never been recognised at the Grammys as a country artist before. Firmly established in the singer-songwriter genre, with her last two albums she’s made her debut in the Billboard Country Songs charts. So far she hasn’t reached the success of her pop days, but a Grammy would certainly validate her career move.
