COUNTRY'S INVISIBLE GRAMMY WINNERS

Country music was well represented among last night's Grammy winners - but you wouldn't know it by watching the TV broadcast. The only country Grammy awarded on the air was for Best Female Country Vocal Performance, presented to the late June Carter Cash for her recording of "Keep On The Sunny Side." June's son, John Carter Cash, accepted the Grammy. Other winners included Vince Gill, who won for Best Male Country Vocal Performance for "Next Big Thing," and Best Country Album as one of the participants of the Livin', Lovin, Losin' -- Songs Of The Louvin Brothers. Alison Krauss took home multiple awards, and Ricky Skaggs was also a winner. On the broadcast, Vince Gill was a member of a super group paying tribute to the Beatles, and Martina McBride performed an emotional version of "Concrete Angel."
