At this year’s Grammy Awards, it was a country artist who reigned supreme: Kacey Musgraves, who won in all four categories she was nominated in, including the coveted Album Of The Year.

 

And it’s shaping up to be another big night for the Golden Hour songwriter at the upcoming American Country Music Awards, where she’s up for three awards: Female Artist Of The Year, Album Of The Year, and Song Of The Year.

 

Another Grammy 2019 winner, country pop duo Dan + Shay, lead the nominations at this year’s ACM Awards. ACM fave Chris Stapleton is likewise up for a number of major awards, including Entertainer Of The Year.
