2021 Grammy Awards: Country Music Winner Predictions

Best Country Album, Song, Performance, and Duo Performance are up for grabs! Here’s who we think will win big.

The Recording Academy

After waiting two months longer than the usual January show date, tonight’s the night to see who will take home some hardware at the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards.

The country categories and their respective nominees are hot this year and the competition is tough. We love seeing so many amazing female artists in the running like Miranda Lambert, Maren Morris, Ashley McBryde, newcomer Ingrid Andress, and more — it gives us a sense of hope for women to have more representation in the genre and we can’t wait to (hopefully) see even more progression after tonight’s show.

Best Country Album: Wildcard, Miranda Lambert; Lady Like, Ingrid Andress; Your Life is a Record, Brandy Clark; Nightfall, Little Big Town; Never Will, Ashley McBryde

Who We Think Will Win: It’s so exciting seeing so many great female country artists finally getting the recognition they deserve in such a big category! We’re going to have to give Ingrid Andress the win on this one. Full of beautiful lyrics, storytelling, and an empowering and creative title track we can’t help but love Lady Like

Best Country Song: “Bluebird,” Miranda Lambert; “The Bones,” Maren Morris; “Crowded Table,” The Highwomen; “More Hearts Than Mine,” Ingrid Andress; “Some People Do,” Old Dominion

Who We Think Will Win: With such a difficult and trying year for all of us, Marren Morris’ The Bones was the perfect song to keep us going and hopeful for the future!

Best Country Solo Performance: “Stick That in Your Country Song,” Eric Church; “Who You Thought I Was,” Brandy Clark; “When My Amy Prays,” Vince Gill; “Black Like Me,” Mickey Guyton; “Bluebird,” Miranda Lambert

Who We Think Will Win: Miranda Lambert is the most awarded artist in ACM history and her No. 1 hit “Bluebird” has already won a variety of awards, including a 2020 CMA Award, and we don’t see the Grammy’s going much differently.

Best Country Duo/ Group Performance: “All Night,” Brothers Osborne; “10,000 Hours,” Dan + Shay with Justin Bieber; “Ocean,” Lady A; “Sugar Coat,” Little Big Town; “Some People Do,” Old Dominion

Who We Think Will Win: This one’s got to go to “10,000 Hours” by Dan + Shay and Justin Bieber. Dan + Shay’s beautiful vocals mixed with Justin Bieber’s fun edge of pop makes this performance the perfect, sweet sing-along song!
