2021 Country Grammy Winners [Updated Live]

Vince Gill, Dan + Shay, The Highwomen and Dolly Parton are among the early winners

Miranda Lambert, Vince Gill, Dan+Shay, The Highwomen and Dolly Parton were among the country winners at the Grammys on Sunday (March 14).

Lambert took home Best Country Album for her album Wildcard during the evening's telecast. This is the second time she's won in this category, following her win for her 2014 album Platinum. She also previously won a Grammy for Best Female Country Vocal Performance for her 2010 hit "The House That Built Me."

Vince Gill, Dan + Shay, The Highwomen and Dolly Parton were among the early winners during the Grammys Premiere ceremony on Sunday afternoon.

"There Was Jesus," recorded by Dolly Parton and CCM artist Zach Williams, earned an early win for Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song. The track was penned by Williams, Casey Beathard and Jonathan Smith. Parton's CCM collaborations are proving to be Grammy voter favorites; she also took home the honor in this category last year, for her collaboration with CCM duo for King & Country on "God Only Knows."

Vince Gill's performance of "When My Amy Prays" earned Best Country Solo Performance. The song was nominated alongside work from Eric Church, Brandy Clark, Mickey Guyton and Miranda Lambert.

Dan+Shay, with Justin Bieber, won Best Country Duo/Group Performance for "10,000 Hours." This marks Dan+Shay's third consecutive win in the category, following wins for "Tequila" and "Speechless."

The Highwomen's "Crowded Table" earned Best Country Song. The track was written by Highwomen bandmembers Brandi Carlile and Natalie Hemby, alongside Lori McKenna. Carlile also took home the award in this category last year for her work on Tanya Tucker's "Bring My Flowers Now." McKenna has previously taken home the Grammy in this category for songs including "Girl Crush" and "Humble and Kind."

The Linda Ronstadt documentary Linda Ronstadt: The Sound of My Voice, also earned an early win for Best Music Film.

The late songwriting and music legend John Prine was posthumously honored during the Premiere ceremony, with "I Remember Everything" winning for Best American Roots Performance and Best American Roots Song.
