Overall, though, country music was very well represented at this year’s GRAMMYs, thanks in part to high-profile performances by Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood, Miranda Lambert, Dierks Bentley, and others. And, of course, several country artists did win in format categories–some for the very first time. The winners are listed below.
