Country Snubbed in Top Grammy Categories For 1st Time in 14 Years

For the first time in 14 years, Country was snubbed in the Top Grammy categories where Pop music reigned supreme. I call for a recount!

In the Country Music categories, Chris Stapleton is up for 3, including Album Of the Year. Little Big Town also leads with 3, including Best Country Album. Miranda Lambert is looking at 2 Grammys potentially, and Country newcomers Midland could pick up 2 as well, including Best Country Song. 

Thomas Rhett, my fave, is up for Best Country Album which he was excited to hear, tweeting, "Wow Wow Wow... this is incredible". And I must say, his IS the best country album this year!
