The 2014 Grammy Awards nominees have been announced, including some of the biggest names in country music.

The names were announced during the ‘The Grammy Nominations Concert Live!! – Countdown to Music’s Biggest Night’ on Friday night (Dec. 6), which featured performances by artists from across all genres.

Not surprisingly, Taylor Swift scored multiple nominations, including Best Country Album and Best Country Song. The superstar also scored a nomination for Album of the Year for her genre-bending album, ‘Red.’

Blake Shelton is also a multiple nominee; he’s up for Best Country Album, Best Country Solo Performance and Best Country Song.

Reigning CMA New Artist of the Year Kacey Musgraves is nominated for Best New Artist, a category which pits her against some of the hottest new artists from across the entire spectrum of contemporary music. She’s also up for Best Country Album for her major label debut, ‘Same Trailer Different Park,’ and in a repeat of a scenario that unfolded at this year’s CMAs, she will compete against herself for Best Country Song — her solo hit ‘Merry Go ‘Round is nominated in that category, as is Miranda Lambert’s ‘Mama’s Broken Heart,’ on which Musgraves is a co-writer.

The 2014 Grammy Awards will air live on Sunday, Jan. 26.
