Maren Morris, Little Big Town Added to 2019 Grammy Performers
Add Maren Morris and Little Big Town to your list of performers for the 2019 Grammy Awards.
The country hitmakers join previously-announced nominees Brandi Carlile and pop star Miley Cyrus as 2019 Grammy Awards performers. Dan + Shay and Kacey Musgraves will also perform on Sunday (Feb. 10).
Morris is nominated in five Grammy categories including Best Country Song and Best Country Solo Performance, the latter of which she won in 2016 with "My Church." Little Big Town have three Grammy wins amongst 11 previous nominations, most recently in 2017. They're nominated in two categories this year.
Carlile is the most-nominated woman in the Grammys in 2019; the Americana singer-songwriter scored six total nominations, including nods in the mainstream all-genre categories of Record of the Year, Album of the Year and Song of the Year. She's also up for Best American Roots Performance, Best American Roots Song and Best Americana Album for her album By the Way, I Forgive You and her song "The Joke," one of the tracks from the album.
In addition to Carlile and Cyrus, Grammy winners Red Hot Chili Peppers will join Post Malone for a special performance, and H.E.R will also take the stage to perform.
Additional acts set to take the stage as part of Music's Biggest Night include current nominees Camila Cabello, Cardi B, Post Malone, Shawn Mendes, and Janelle Monáe, with more artists to be announced in the coming weeks.
Dan + Shay are first-time Grammy nominees, nominated for Best Country Duo/Group Performance for their chart-topping hit "Tequila." The duo — made up of Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney — were beyond grateful to hear that they'd been asked to perform.
"Being nominated for two Grammy Awards is an incredible honor by itself, but getting to perform on the show might be the ultimate highlight of our career," they write on Instagram. "We're grateful to share the prestigious stage with some of the greatest artists in the world, and hope that you'll tune in on February 10 to share this special moment with us."
Musgraves is a two-time Grammy winner and is nominated for four Grammys in 2019, including Album of the Year for her 2018 release Golden Hour, Best Country Solo Performance for "Butterflies," Best Country Song for "Space Cowboy," and Best Country Album for Golden Hour.
The 61st Annual Grammy Awards will broadcast live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles, hosted by Alicia Keys. The show airs on Feb. 10 at 8PM ET.
