Country Music at the 2015 Grammy Awards

It was a great night for country music and a big night for the women of Country at the 2015 Grammy Awards.

Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood took home top Country honors and veteran Roseanne Cash dominated the Americana categories.

Miranda Lambert gave a rockin’ performance of her hit “Little Red Wagon,” and at the same time, took the honor of delivering the first censored moment of the night.

Country Legend Glen Campbell won Best Country Song for “I’m Not Gonna Miss You,” which is the final song of his long, storied career. His wife accepted the award on his behalf, because he is the late stages of Alzheimer’s Disease.

Here are the 2015 Grammy Awards nominees and winners in the Country and Americana categories:
