Grammy Award for Best Country Solo Performance
The Grammy Award for Best Country Solo Performance is an award presented at the Grammy Awards, a ceremony that was established in 1958 and originally called the Gramophone Awards. According to the 54th Grammy Awards description guide it is designed for solo (vocal or instrumental) country recordings and is limited to singles or tracks only.
|Grammy Award for Best Country Solo Performance|
|Awarded for||Quality solo vocal or instrumental country recordings|
|Presented by||National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences|
|Currently held by||Willie Nelson, "Ride Me Back Home" (2020)|
The award combines the previous categories for Best Female Country Vocal Performance, Best Male Country Vocal Performance and Best Country Instrumental Performance (if it is an instrumental solo performance). The restructuring of these categories was a result of the Recording Academy's wish to decrease the list of categories and awards and to eliminate the distinctions between male and female performances.
|Willie Nelson||"Ride Me Back Home"|
|Ashley McBryde||"Girl Goin' Nowhere"|
|Tyler Childers||"All Your'n"|
|Blake Shelton||"God's Country"|
|Tanya Tucker||"Bring My Flowers Now"|
