What’s remarkable about the five nominees in the Album of the Year category are that there are no nods for men named Paisley, Keith, Strait, or Urban, or for women named Underwood or Swift. It’s a new dawn, as they say, with a new generation of country artists taking a hold of the genre’s future.

‘Chief’ by Eric Church and ‘Four the Record’ by Miranda Lambert will rely on artistic merit over commercial success to win this award, while albums from Jason Aldean and Kenny Chesney will surely stand behind the five Top 5 records their projects have produced. Lady Antebellum was the winner of this award at the Grammys in February.
