Dierks Bentley, Taylor Swift + Keith Urban Among Presenters at 2015 Grammy Awards
In addition to their on-stage roles, Bentley, Swift and Urban are all nominated for awards this year: Bentley is up for Best Country Album; Swift is nominated for the all-genre Record of the Year and Song of the Year, as well as Best Pop Solo Performance; and Urban received nods in the Best Country Solo Performance and Best Country Duo / Group Performance categories.
A complete list of 2015 Grammy Awards presenters is available here.
On Monday (Feb. 2), Swift posted to her Tumblr that she would be presenting the award for Best New Artist but not performing during the show.
"Since my whole life is wrapped up and entangled in the planning of the 1989 World Tour right now, I’m not going to be performing on the Grammys this year," she writes. "I need this time to focus only on the tour."
No word yet on which awards Bentley and Urban will be presenting, but there's a chance that Swift could be handing off the Best New Artist trophy to none other than Brandy Clark, who is one of the nominees in that all-genre category.
The country genre will be well represented during this year's Grammys. In addition to Bentley, Swift and Urban's roles as presenters, Clark and Dwight Yoakam, Miranda Lambert and Eric Church are all scheduled to perform during the broadcast, while Hunter Hayes will host the pre-telecast Premiere Ceremony.
