Bad news. This was in the Tennessean:
One star you won't see — unless something changes — is Country Music Hall of Famer Vince Gill, who is up for overall album of the year and country album of the year. I've been told that he was offered several performance scenarios, none of which were worthy of his stature or nominations. Word is one offer was a 90-second performance slot.
Larry Fitzgerald, Vince's long-time manager, acknowledges that he "is disappointed that Grammy producers chose not to offer Vince an appropriate role on this year's Grammy show. Apparently Vince is the only artist up for album of year in all genres that is not performing."
RIDICULOUS!!!!!! My guess is that he won't have a shot at the AOY if this is the thought process of the Grammy awards.
