POLL: Which 2017 Grammy Awards Country Performance Are You Most Excited For?
The 2017 Grammy Awards are coming up on Sunday (Feb. 12), and country fans have plenty to look forward to during the annual all-genre awards ceremony: In addition to this year's country, Americana, bluegrass and folk nominees, a few of the genres' stars are set to take the stage during the show as well.
Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban were among the first performers announced for the 2017 Grammys ceremony; it’s confirmed that they’ll be collaborating during the event, but no further details are known about what, exactly, they'll be singing. Additionally, Maren Morris will be teaming up with Alicia Keys during the show; the two previously collaborated for an episode of CMT's Crossroads.
Also on the list of performers for the 2017 Grammy Awards are Little Big Town and Sturgill Simpson; Simpson is nominated for two trophies this year, and although LBT aren't among the 2017 nominees, they do have a new album coming out at the end of February. Another Best New Artist nominee, Kelsea Ballerini will be performing as well, and Grammys fans who tune in early, to the Premiere Ceremony, will get to see the O’Connor Band With Mark O’Connor perform.
The 59th annual Grammy Awards will take place in Los Angeles on Feb. 12. The Late Late Show host James Corden will host the televised ceremony, which will begin at 8PM ET on CBS; the pre-telecast Premiere Ceremony will begin at 3:30PM ET and be available to stream online.
