The 2021 Grammy Awards winners have begun to be announced, and some of the biggest names in country music are among those who were revealed as early winners in a pre-Grammys online stream on Sunday (March 14).

Dolly Parton was among the early winners, as well as a film about Linda Ronstadt titled Linda Ronstadt: The Sound of My Voice, which won Best Music Film. The winners in the categories of Best Country Solo Performance, Best Country Duo/Group Performance and Best Country Song were also announced on Sunday afternoon in advance of the televised ceremony.

Miranda Lambert led the nominations going into the show, scoring nods in three country Grammy categories. Old Dominion, Ingrid Andress and Little Big Town each scored two nominations, along with Brandy Clark, while Mickey Guyton was a first-time Grammy nominee in 2021, with her song "Black Like Me" nominated in the Best Country Solo Performance category.

Andress was the only country artist nominated in the all-genre categories this year, scoring a nod for Best New Artist. Taylor Swift was also nominated in several pop and all-genre categories, for songs from her surprise Folklore album.
