Sorry, Blake Shelton and Tim McGraw. The big winners at the 2014 Grammys are going to be women. This may not bother the 'Doin' What She Likes' singer, as his wife Miranda Lambert scored multiple nominations and is always a favorite to take home the hardware. Kacey Musgraves, Taylor Swift and Kelly Clarkson are other country female nominees for the Jan. 26 ceremony.

In this latest episode of Encore, Taste of Country's Billy Dukes explains why counting on women to be recognized isn't such a bold prediction in 2014. Last year, Carrie Underwood won big, continuing a trend. Watch the video above and then subscribe to the Taste of Country YouTube channel.
