The nominees for Best Country Song at the 66th Annual Grammy Awards is a star-studded list of the songs that ruled our radios and our hearts all year long
Slightly skewed away from the commercial country behemoths like Luke Combs, Lainey Wilson and Jelly Roll – all of whom have been the leaders of the format for much of 2023 – this year's collection of nominees show the movement towards the more stripped down, underproduced, and frankly, Americana-leaning artists.
Racking up coveted nominations for Best Country Song are the likes of Tyler Childers' 'In Your Love', Zach Bryan's Kacey Musgraves-assisted 'I Remember Everything', Morgan Wallen's 'Last Night', Chris Stapleton's 'White Horse' and Brandy Clark's 'Buried'.
With his nomination for the electrified 'White Horse', Stapleton marks his third consecutive entry in the category, which he won in 2022 with his chilling wailer, 'Cold'. Last year, he was nominated alongside Taylor Swift for their duet, 'I Bet You Think About Me'.
Also at last year's ceremony, this same category featured heavy hitters Maren Morris ('Circle Around This Town'), Luke Combs ('Doin' This'), Miranda Lambert ('If I Was A Cowboy'), Willie Nelson ('I'll Love You Till The Day I Die') and Cody Johnson who took home the trophy for ''Til You Can't'.
Country's superb talent was well displayed throughout the 2024 Grammy nominations, with Childers tacking on six total nominations, Bryan securing three and Clark nabbing an impressive five.
The 66th Annual Grammy Awards will return to Los Angeles' Crypto.com Arena on Feb. 4, 2024. The star-studded ceremony, celebrating the best in music, will air on CBS at 7pm CT. It will also be livestreamed on Paramount+.
