Country Shows Up Big In The 2019 Grammy Nominations

Country came to play this year.

The nominees for the 2019 GRAMMY Awards were revealed today and country music held their own in the all-genre categories. Maren Morris, Kacey Musgraves, Luke Combs, Margo Price and Brandi Carlile were all nominated in the general field.

Of course, there were a few head-scratches in the country field, but that’s to be expected when it comes to any awards show.

And the nominees are..
