The GRAMMY Nominations Are Here

Nominees for the 63rd annual GRAMMY Awards were announced yesterday, with Miranda Lambert and Ingrid Andress leading the country nods with three each.

Both artists are nominated for Best Country Album, Miranda for “Bluebird” and Ingrid or “Lady Like.” The category is actually dominated by females. In fact, for the first time in history, every album in the Best Country Album category is from either a woman or a group fronted by a woman.

Other artists with multiple nominations include Brandy Clark, Old Dominion and Little Big Town, who each have two.

Among this year's first-time nominees are Mickey Guyton, the first Black woman to ever be nominated for Best Country Solo Performance, The Highwomen, and Old Dominion.

Among the biggest snubs:

  • Luke Combs, who has been dominating the country chart for the past year, was completely shut out.
  • The Chicks, who returned this year with “Gaslighter,” their first album in 14 years, were also shut out. 

The 63rd Annual GRAMMY Awards, which will be hosted by Trevor Noah, will air January 31st on CBS. Check out some of the nominees below and click here for the complete list.
