The staff and readers of The Boot were pretty accurate when we predicted the winners for the 2014 Grammy Awards last week.

Taylor Swift ended up empty-handed after our readers predicted she would win Best Country Album, which ended up going to Kacey Musgraves  — as the staff predicted. Multiple nominee Blake Shelton and his wife Miranda Lambert were also shut out, while Darius Rucker, the Civil Wars and more were big winners.
