The Grammy Awards nominations for 2018 dropped on Tuesday (Nov. 28), and a number of country music's top artists received nods for their work. Country was shut out of the major all-genre categories, but you'll find a legend outside of the typical list of country nominations.

It should come as no surprise that acts like Kenny Chesney, Lady Antebellum, Chris Stapleton and Sam Hunt all scored Grammy nominations. Both Stapleton and Little Big Town tie with three nominations in 2018, appearing together in the major categories of Best Country Album and Best Country Song. Miranda Lambert's "Tin Man" also earned two nominations in Best Country Solo Performance and Best Country Song, with both categories also featuring Hunt's massive hit, "Body Like a Back Road."

Country queen Reba McEntire has also scored a nom, but surprisingly not in country. She is one of the five nominees in the Best Roots Gospel Album for Sing It Now: Songs of Faith & Hope. 


2018 is a significant year for the Grammys, as it marks the show's 60th anniversary.


The Grammys telecast takes place on Jan. 28, 2018 airing from 7:30-11PM ET on CBS.


The Grammys will have a change in venue in 2018, moving from its longtime home at the Staples Center in Los Angeles to the iconic Madison Square Garden in New York.


The Grammy Awards honor the artists of the year that have made the most impact on the music world. Many of the revered acts across all genres are celebrated for their work, with the show generating some of the most significant moments in music history. James Corden on The Late Late Show on CBS will host for the second year in a row.
