2018 GRAMMY Awards Nominees

Nominees for the upcoming 60th GRAMMY Awards were revealed Tuesday morning (Nov. 28) and several country music stars are in the running.

Chris Stapleton leads the country pack with three nominations, including Best Country Solo Performance, Best Country Song, and Best Country Album. Following close behind with two nods are superstars Miranda Lambert and Sam Hunt, who each earned nods for Best Country Solo Performance and Best Country Song, and Lady Antebellum and Little Big Town who are each included in the Best Country Duo/Group Performance and Best Country Album categories.

While country artists were noticeably left out of the all-genre categories for the GRAMMYs, a few stars landed nominations outside of the four country music categories, including Reba, whose first-ever gospel album, Sing It Now: Songs Of Faith & Hope, earned a nod for Best Roots Gospel Album.
