This Sunday’s (2/5) GRAMMY Awards could be a big one for a few different country stars. Of course, Miranda Lambert, nominated in all four country categories, could sweep the entire category. Regardless of who wins, there will be great performances from Luke Combs, Chris Stapleton, and a tribute to the late Loretta Lynn by Kacey Musgraves.

While we don’t know who will win each awrd, we can speculate what could happen that would be recording making at the GRAMMYS and in country music.

The 65th GRAMMY Awards will air live on Sunday (2/5) at 8 PM ET. As we know, many of the country categories will be handed out in a pre-ceremony, which you can watch at
