Wondering why none of the Dixie Chicks' super tunes have been nominated for a Grammy? Here's your answer: According to NARAS (National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, aka the Grammy folks), if an act wins the award for Best Country Album, no songs released from that same album are eligible for nomination in subsequent award shows.
What does that mean for Emily, Natalie and Martie? If you remember, the talented trio took home the Best Country Album award last year for their multi-platinum Fly, therefore, nothing else from that album is eligible.
In addition, the trio won the same award two years ago for their Diamond Award-winning Wide Open Spaces.
The explanation seems to sit well with the Chicks -- after all, they've done pretty well in the awards department since their explosive debut in 1998.
