Keith Urban should be awaiting the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards with some expectation: he’s been nominated for Best Male Country Vocal Performance, an award he’s won three times before.
Last.fm Trends is looking at the nominees in the run up, and Urban’s pattern of wins seems to put him ahead of his peers. We’re looking at his scrobbles to see any other indicators of how he might do.
He’s been nominated for “‘Til Summer Comes Around,” released on Defying Gravity alongside “Sweet Thing”, his 2009 winning song.
It’s not yet as popular as previous singles, and certainly can’t match up to 2005 winner “You’ll Think Of Me”, which has a total of 367,426 scrobbles from 87,711 listeners. The Recent Listening Trend doesn’t suggest a pre-Grammy uptick yet, but as part of a large catalogue, it’s less likely to be affected by hype.
As a strong performer on both Hot Country Songs and the Billboard Hot 100, Urban doesn’t seem to have lost any of his touch – but does this track really stand out?
