Mickey Guyton, Chris Stapleton Lead the 2022 Grammy Awards Country Nominees
A full list of 2022 Grammy nominees was revealed on Tuesday (Nov. 23), with Carly Pearce on hand to help share the news via the Recording Academy's livestream announcement from the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles.
Mickey Guyton and Chris Stapleton lead the way in country categories, with each snagging three nominations. Kacey Musgraves scored two nods, both of which are for her new song, "Camera Roll," and Brothers Osborne, Miranda Lambert and Sturgill Simpson also picked up two nominations in country categories.
Though Jimmie Allen scored only one nomination, it's a big one: He's in the mix to win the all-genre award for Best New Artist in 2022. Meanwhile, Brandi Carlile's "Right on Time" is nominated in the all-genre Record of the Year category.
A few country performers also earned mentions in categories not specific to the format. Willie Nelson and Dolly Parton both received nominations in the Best Traditional Pop Vocal category, for their albums That's Life and A Holly Dolly Christmas, respectively. Carrie Underwood's faith-based album, My Savior, is nominated for Best Roots Gospel Album. That brings her total number of 2022 Grammy nominations up to two, as she's also nominated in a country category for her duet with Jason Aldean, "If I Didn't Love You."
The 2022 Grammy Awards are set for Monday, Jan. 31, 2022. They'll broadcast live on CBS and Paramount+ from 8 PM to 11:30 PM EST.
