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.
Other artists nominated for awards in the country categories include Miranda Lambert, Sam Hunt, Maren Morris, Midland, Brothers Osborne, Alison Krauss and Zac Brown Band, with many using Twitter to share their excitement.
Got off a long flight to find out “I Could Use A Love Song” is nominated for a freaking Grammy! I can’t process that HERO has had this presence both years now, so I’m incredibly thankful & shocked. Congratulations to all of my friends for their nominations as well! #GRAMMYs pic.twitter.com/sa2DUjrCEG— MAREN MORRIS (@MarenMorris) November 28, 2017
