POLL: Which Country 2019 Grammy Awards Performance Are You Most Excited For?
Country music fans have plenty of reasons to tune into the 2019 Grammy Awards: Throughout the night, numerous artists from the country and Americana genres will take the stage to perform.
During the all-genre awards show, viewers will see both Dan + Shay and Brandi Carlile onstage for performances. It's a safe bet that Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney will be singing their hit song "Tequila" during the show; after all, it's nominated for Best Country Song, and they're up for Best Country Duo / Group Performance as well. Carlile, meanwhile, is the most-nominated woman at this year's Grammys, thanks to her 2018 album By the Way, I Forgive You and its standout track "The Joke," so expect to hear that song on Sunday night (Feb. 10) as well.
But perhaps the biggest country music moment of the 2019 Grammy Awards will be a tribute to the iconic Dolly Parton, who is the 2019 MusiCares Person of the Year. In addition to Parton herself, who will take the Grammys stage for the first time since 2001, to perform some of the new music she wrote for the recent Netflix film Dumplin', the musical tribute will also feature Kacey Musgraves, Maren Morris and Little Big Town, along with pop star Katy Perry.
