Keith Urban and Carrie Underwood were the first country performers at the 2017 Grammy Awards, but a healthy dose of Nashville's best followed. See some of the best pictures from the 2017 Grammys, taken by the best photo team in the business.

The country superstars performed "The Fighter," a song from Urban's Grammy nominated Ripcord album. It was an easy set for the two vets. They looked as happy to be sharing a stage with one another as they would if either won a Grammy later.

Kelsea Ballerini's collaboration with Lukas Graham followed. This duet was a two-song medley of "7 Years" and her "Peter Pan." Earlier in the night, Ballerini learned she would not be the all-genre Best New Artist winner. However, it's difficult to say the night was anything but a success for Ballerini.

Grammy winner Maren Morris may have given the best country performance, singing "Once," a cathartic ballad from her debut Hero album. While not yet a single, the song is one of the most special to the 26-year-old Texan.

A performance from Sturgill Simpson followed. Little Big Town also took part in a tribute to the Bee Gees. See photos from all the county Grammy performances in the gallery above.
