List Rules Vote for the albums, country stars, and songs you think should win the Grammy in their category.

It's the Grammys, y'all! Whether you're a little bit country or a little bit rock and roll, it's time to celebrate the best that country music had to offer for the 57th Grammy Awards. The most popular music genre in the United States as of 2014, country music is the touchstone for good old American values, and its popularity shows no signs of slowing down. Believe it or not, the stereotype of a country music listener has evolved greatly, the genre expanding beyond its initial reaches, thanks in part to mainstream country artists such as Miranda Lambert, Keith Urban, Carrie Underwood, and Eric Church.

With that said, which country crooners, songs, and albums do you think deserve to win their country music categories at the 2015 Grammy Awards? Did you get down with your bad self listening to  Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert's collaboration on "Somethin' Bad"? Has Eric Church moved into the sacred place in your country strong heart that Blake Shelton once owned? Are you as obsessed with Hunter Hayes as the rest of the Twitterverse? Do you have couple envy over Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, especially when listening to their hit, "Meanwhile Back at Mama's"?

Whether you dabble with the country music genre or you are a full-fledged Southern belle, we want to know your 2015 Grammy predictions! Upvote the country music Grammy nominees you think most deserve to win their categories and watch for who wins big when the Grammy's air on February 8, 2015!
