It’s true Nashville won’t be disappointed about this year’s Grammy nominees. The strong showing of country artists include old favorites and new with women of country artist Maren Morris dominating the pack. Not surprisingly Morris has been nominated for awards in three categories: Best Country Solo Performance, Best Country Song (“My Church”), Best Album (HERO), and Best New Artist.
Kelsea Ballerini also finds herself nominated for Best New Artist, her first grammy nomination.
Brandy Clark, Miranda Lambert, and Carrie Underwood join Morris as nominees for Best Country Solo Performance alongside former American Idol judge Keith Urban.
While the nominees for Best Country Duo include a nice mix of old and new artists as well as pop and country collaborations such as Dierks Bentley and Elle King’s Different for Girls and Pentatonix featuring Dolly Parton in a rendition of the hit Jolene.
Loretta Lynn and Brandy Clark will also make an appearance at this year’s Grammy Awards, both nominated for Best Country Album.

I am currently a student at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles as a marketing major. Upon realizing that I wanted to change the way people perceive country music and to help women have a voice, I began Next Women of Country in 2015 promoting new female artists and sharing their stories with the world.
