2017 Grammy Awards – Our Predictions

Here is something you maybe didn’t know about us: we love award shows. We love the spectacle of it all, from the fashion on the red carpet to celebrating of some of the best creatives of our time. Yes, they can drag on too long and be overly dramatic but we love them none the less.

With the Grammy Award on Sunday, we want to offer our predictions. While we listen to tons of music, we certainly aren’t music scholars. We’re only going to make predictions in categories we are familiar with. We don’t know nearly enough to offer an opinion on the Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song category. Also, our predictions are basically just what we like most and we know a couple of these picks have no chance of winning. We don’t expect to be historically correct on many of our guesses, but it’ll be fun to try. Let us know what you think. Who are your picks? We’d love to hear your thoughts.

Without further ado, here we go. Our predicted winners are in bold.

    Not sure about the avett pick. One of my favorite bands of all time but this album is total garbage and I’ll be much more hesitant to buy future albums. They should’ve stuck with what they were good at..
