YOU KNOW THE Grammys are on shaky ground when viewers would rather watch pitch-challenged amateurs on American Idol than multi-platinum, even legendary superstars. With recent ratings shrinking, the event advertised as "Music's Biggest Night" has become progressively smaller. The 49th annual Grammy Awards, airing live tonight, face myriad struggles: infinite audience fragmentation, competition from a glut of televised celebrity spectacles and the over-saturation of a pop culture whose disposability rivals Kleenex.

For decades, country music was proud to be the sound of America's heartland. But things have changed in the heartland recently, and nowhere was that more evident than on last night's Country Music Association awards show. Sure, most of the bands who played included fiddle players and pedal steel guitars, but more often than not, they were drowned out by the keyboards and electric guitars. But the sound they delivered was anything but traditional - and that was the point. As Male Vocalist of the Year Tim McGraw put it, "Things Change."

It must be sweet to wake up in the morning and be Vince Gill. Think on it. You'd be 6-foot-3 and movie-star handsome. You'd have the easy tenor voice most crooners only dream of. You'd quicken hearts with your swashbuckling guitar solos. You might, if you felt like it, write a new tune by lunchtime - possibly your fifth Country Music Association song of the year. Maybe you'd ponder the 22 million records you've sold or your 15 Grammys. Maybe you'd drop in on your buddies, Dolly Parton or Bonnie Raitt.
