The 2017 Grammy Awards was quite the memorable star-studded event! Which of country music's elite walked away with some serious hardware? Find out here...

The 2017 Grammy Awards was quite the spectacle! What a HUGE night for country music phenoms Maren Morris and Sturgill Simpson especially. The country music genre was well represented with Keith Urban, Carrie Underwood, Brothers Osborne, Chris Young, Cassadee Pope, Kelsea Ballerini, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Little Big Town, Maren Morris, Sturgill Simpson, and Hillary Scott all participating in the big event. The camera seemed to absolutely love Keith Urban, he got a lot of screen time and was even pulled into host James Corden’s shenanigans along with Tim and Faith.
