And from the best Americana Album category...

9) Greg Allman; I Love the Life I Live; Southern Blood
10) Iron and Wine; Call it Dreaming; Beast Epic
11) Brent Cobb; Solving Problems; Shine on Rainy Day

And given it seems the Grammy Awards for Americana artist were kinda male-dominated, we closed the show with a couple good ones not nominated (in fairness, I haven't a clue if these records were released at a time that allowed for being nominated).

12) Amanda Shires; Harmless; My Piece of Land
13) Margo Price; Loner; All American Made
