Country Stars React to Their Grammy Nominations

Many of country's big names woke up this morning to find out that they had been nominated for a Grammy, and stars like Reba McEntire and Thomas Rhett quickly took to social media to express their excitement over their nominations.

McEntire was nominated for Best Roots Gospel Album for Sing it Now: Songs of Faith & Hope, and the singer thanked those who worked on the album for their contributions.

Thomas Rhett, who earned a Best Country Album nod for Life Changes, wrote that he was "honored" to be included alongside fellow nominees Kenny Chesney, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town and Chris Stapleton.

Wow. So blown away and honored to be included on this list. Thanks y’all. #GRAMMYs #LifeChanges
