The Grammy’s were  as exciting as ever last night…what a great show!  Below are some of the biggest Country Moments.

  • Taylor Swift opened the show with her smash crossover “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” in a circus-themed performance a-la Alice in Wonderland.
  • During Taylor’s opening song, she changed up the lyrics saying, “I’m sorry, I’m busy opening up the Grammys.” – some speculation it was a jab at ex Harry Styles.
  • Miranda Lambert and Dierks Bentley collaborated on each other’s hits, “Over You” and “Home” respectively. Blake Shelton, Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman gave them a standing ovation.
  • Faith Hill and Tim McGraw presented the Song of the Year award to pop group Fun. for “We Are Young.”
  • Carrie Underwood was seated next to controversial couple Chris Brown and Rihanna.
  • Hunter Hayes and Miranda Lambert singing along with Maroon 5 and Alicia Keys on their “Girl On Fire/Daylight” mashup.
  • Kelly Clarkson gives shout out to her “sexy” fiancé Brandon Blackstock (Reba’s stepson) after winning Pop Vocal Album. She added, “I got stuck to Miranda Lambert, which is a story for a song… later, with alcohol.”
  • Carrie Underwood was wearing $31-million in jewels at the Grammys.
  • Kelly Clarkson sang “Tennessee Waltz” in honor of the late Patti Page and Carole King with “Natural Woman.” She was given a standing ovation.
  • Dierks Bentley, Keith Urban and Taylor Swift singing and dancing along with Bruno Mars’ performance of “Locked Out Of Heaven.”
