A few country artists will be onstage at the 2017 Grammy Awards on Sunday night (Feb. 12), whether they're awards winners or not. Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, among others, will help present trophies during the 59th annual Grammys ceremony.
In addition to McGraw and Hill, Thomas Rhett and Kelly Clarkson are among the 2017 Grammy Awards' lineup of presenters. As previously announced, during the Premiere Ceremony, Sarah Jarosz will help present some of the honors being handed out as well.
Hill is not nominated for any awards at the 2017 Grammys, but McGraw, Rhett, Clarkson and Jarosz all are.
