The nominees for “The 60th Annual Grammy Awards” have been announced, but you won’t find a lot of country artists outside the country-specific categories. In fact, not one country artist shows up in the four major categories — Song of the Year, Album of the Year, Record of the Year and New Artist of the Year.

Once you scroll down to the country categories, some very deserving artists are recognized, though. Music from Little Big Town and Chris Stapleton picked up three nominations, while Midland, Lady Antebellum, Sam Hunt, and Miranda Lambert earned two nods apiece.

Reba McEntire also picked up a nod in the Best Roots Gospel Album category for her faith-based project, “Sing It Now: Songs of Faith and Hope.” Glen Campbell is nominated posthumously in the Best American Roots Performance category for “Arkansas Farmboy,” alongside fellow nominee Alison Krauss for “I Never Cared for You.”
