When the nominees for the 66th Grammy Awards were revealed this morning (Nov. 10), many Nashville artists, songwriters, producers and engineers appeared on the list. Taking place on Sunday, Feb. 4 at Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles, the 2024 Grammy Awards will invite plenty of Music City record-makers to vie for trophies.
Brandy Clark was one of the top nominees this year with six nods. She is joined by SZA (nine), Phoebe Bridgers (seven), Serban Ghenea (seven), Victoria Monét (seven), Jack Antonoff (six), Jon Batiste (six), Boygenius (six), Miley Cyrus (six), Billie Eilish (six), Olivia Rodrigo (six) and Taylor Swift (six) in the top nominees.
Despite country music having a huge moment during the 66th Grammy’s eligibility period of Oct. 1, 2022 – Sept. 15, 2023, the genre is not represented in three of the big four categories, including Song, Record and Album of the Year.
However, in the all-genre New Artist of the Year category, Jelly Roll and The War And Treaty are present alongside Gracie Abrams, Fred Again, Ice Spice, Coco Jones, Noah Kahan and Victoria Monét.
Jelly Roll is also nominated alongside the newly-crowned CMA Entertainer of the Year Lainey Wilson for Best Country Duo/Group Performance for their collaboration “Save Me,” while The War And Treaty also nabbed a second nomination for Best American Roots Song with “Blank Page.”
Wilson earned one more nomination in her first-ever Grammy recognition for Best Country Album (Bell Bottom Country).
Tyler Childers was nominated for Best Country Album (Rustin’ In The Rain); Best Country Song, Best Country Solo Performance and Best Music Video (“In Your Love”) and Best Americana Performance (“Help Me Make It Through The Night”) bringing his total to five. Zach Bryan garnered three nods, including Best Country Song and Best Country Duo/Group Performance (“I Remember Everything”) and Best Country Album (Zach Bryan).
Chris Stapleton nabbed nominations for Best Country Song and Best Country Solo Performance (“White Horse”) as well as a nomination alongside Carly Pearce for Best Country Duo/Group Performance for “We Don’t Fight Anymore.” Brothers Osborne was nominated for Best Country Album (Brothers Osborne) and Best Country Duo/Group Performance (“Nobody’s Nobody.”)
Kelsea Ballerini was nominated for Best Country Album with Rolling Up the Welcome Mat, while Luke Combs garnered a nomination for Best Country Solo Performance for his CMA-winning “Fast Car.” Dolly Parton nabbed one for Best Country Solo Performance (“The Last Thing On My Mind”).
In the Best Country Duo/Group Performance, Vince Gill and Paul Franklin were recognized for “Kissing Your Picture (Is So Cold)” and Dierks Bentley and Billy Strings were included for “High Note.”
Morgan Wallen‘s mega-hit “Last Night” was nominated for Best Country Song, which goes to the songwriters John Byron, Ashley Gorley, Jacob Kasher Hindlin and Ryan Vojtesak. Surprisingly, the country hitmaker was not represented anywhere else in the Grammy nominations list.
Top nominee Brandy Clark is up for Best Country Song and Best Country Solo Performance (“Buried”), Best Americana Album (Brandy Clark), Best American Roots Song (“Dear Insecurity”) and Best Musical Theater Album (Shucked), alongside her co-writer Shane McAnally.
McAnally and Jessie Jo Dillon represent Nashville in the all-genre Songwriter Of The Year, Non-Classical category.
The final round of Grammy voting, which will determine winners, take places Dec. 14, 2023 – Jan. 4, 2024.
