Grammys 2020: Keith Urban, Shania Twain Added as Presenters During Ceremony
The 2020 Grammy Awards just got a little more country! Keith Urban and Shania Twain have both been announced as presenters during the live ceremony, joining a short list of country stars given the honor, including Brandi Carlile and Tanya Tucker. Carlile and Tucker will also perform, and could also both potentially take the stage as winners, since they are both also nominated.
Urban has four Grammy awards to his credit, and has been nominated a total of 19 times. Twain has been nominated 18 times and has won five trophies. Neither Urban nor Twain are nominated this year.
Urban, who last won a Grammy in 2010 for Best Male Country Vocal Performance for "'Til Summer Comes Around," admitted at the time that being nominated really was the award.
"It's a euphoric feeling for me as an artist, to know how many records are made and how many records get narrowed down into that nomination category," Urban told Billboard prior to his last win. "In a lot of ways, really, the first award is that nomination."
The 52-year-old just announced he is adding more dates to his Las Vegas residency, due to fan demand.
