53rd Grammy Awards February 13, 2011

53rd Grammy AwardsThe 53rd Grammy Awards are scheduled to be aired on February 13, 2011 on CBS at 8–11:30 p.m. (ET/PT).

I was looking over the list of nominees, and the list kept going on and on and on…. I hadn’t realized there were so many categories, 109 this year to be exact… Wow!

There are several country exclusive related categories and then there are a few country artists in general categories as well. Here are the one’s I found and in the case of the general category, I’ve only listed the country nominee in the category. The complete list of nominees can be found on the official Grammy website. (if I’ve missed any, feel free to comment and let me and others know in the comment section at the bottom of this page…) I’ve also listed each category number that corresponds to the category number on the Grammy website.
