After a six-week delay, the 2021 Grammy Awards took place on Sunday (March 14), and Miranda Lambert, Dan + Shay and the late John Prine were among the day's country and Americana winners.

Lambert, who notched three 2021 Grammys nominations, won Best Country Album, the only country-specific category to be handed out during the Grammy Awards telecast. Dan + Shay's Best Country Duo / Group Performance victory and Prine's two posthumous wins in Best American Roots Song and Best American Roots Solo Performance came during the pre-telecast Premiere Ceremony.

Ingrid Andress was the only country act nominated in the four General Field categories at the 2021 Grammy Awards. She lost Best New Artist to Megan Thee Stallion.
