The 2021 Grammys are shaping up with the announcement of the award show’s performers. This year, there are numerous country acts performing on music’s biggest show.

2021 Grammy Country Performances

Female country artists are shining at the upcoming awards show. In fact, only the ladies of country will be performing, no men from country music.

Miranda Lambert will be hitting the stage. Lambert is up for Best Country Solo Performance and Best Country Song for “Bluebird” and Best Country Album for Wildcard. Maren Morris is also set to perform. Morris is nominated for Best Country Song for “The Bones.”

First-time nominee Mickey Guyton will also take the stage. She is nominated in the Best Country Solo Performance category for “Black Like Me.”

Brandi Carlile, who is nominated twice this year, is set to perform. “Crowded Table” was nominated for Best Country Song that she co-wrote and performed with The Highwomen. She is also nominated in the Best Song Written For Visual Media for “Carried Me Away” from Pixar’s Onward.

Although she’s genre-bending, Taylor Swift will take the stage. Assuming she’s playing a song from her most recent record, Evermore, there’s a good chance that she may be performing a country-leaning tune. Swift also has nominations for Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album for Folklore. She is also nominated for Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance for “Cardigan” and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for “Exile” featuring Bon Iver. Furthermore, she is nominated for Best Song Written For Visual Media “Beautiful Ghosts” from Cats.

Other Performers

Countless other stars will be performing at the Grammys including Dua Lipa, Roddy Ricch, and Bad Bunny. Other nominees Black Pumas, Cardi B, DaBaby, Doja Cat, Billie Eilish, Haim, Brittany Howard, Lil Baby, Chris Martin, John Mayer, Megan Thee Stallion, Post Malone and Harry Styles will also perform.

Talk show host Trevor Noah will host this year’s show. The actual event will be at the Los Angeles Convention Center and surrounding buildings.

Fans can tune in to CBS or Paramount+ on March 14 at 8 PM ET to watch the live show. Additionally, the premiere ceremony will be available to stream live at 3 PM ET. Host Jhené Aiko will announce the majority of the country award winners during the live stream.
