Grammy Predictions: Country

Best Country Album
Will Win: Lady Antebellum "Need You Now"
Should Win: LA or Miranda Lambert "Revolution"
Commentary: While Lambert has won plenty of industry awards this year, I feel that the Album/Song/Record nominations will be enough to put the already Grammy Award winners Lady Antebellum on top.

Best Country Song
Will Win/Should Win: Lady Antebellum "Need You Now"
Commentary: Need You Know was a huge crossover hit, and should sweep the Country categories.

Best Female Country Vocal Performance
Will Win/Should Win: Miranda Lambert "The House that Built Me"
Commentary: While the top categories of Song and Album may be tough to decifer, there is no doubt that Miranda Lamberts incredible year will win here at least one Grammy.

Best Male Country Vocal Performance
Will Win: Keith Urban "Til Summer Comes Around"
Should Win: Jamey Johnson "Macon"
Commentary: While I preferred Jamey Johnsons hit here, I think that previous winner Keith Urban will have very little trouble taking home another trophy for his collection.

Best Country Performance By a Duo/Group w/Vocals
Will Win/Should Win: Lady Antebellum "Need You Now"
Commentary: Like I said, sweep.

Best Country Collaboration w/Vocals
Will Win/Should Win: Dierks Bentley, Miranda Lambert & Jamey Johnson, "Bad Angel"
Commentary: Star power aside, this was a great tune, and a nice way to kill three birds with one stone.
