Grammys Gone Country: Three Songs Set for 2013 Show

Nashville music execs have long grumbled that the Grammy Awards show doesn't include enough country music.

But Music Row's gonna be happy this year: The Grammys folks have announced that they will add two more country performances— one by Carrie Underwood and the other some sort of collaboration between tourmates Dierks Bentley and Miranda Lambert.

Include the performance by Taylor Swift that was announced earlier, and that means there will be three country performances on the 2013 telecast.

Most years, the show includes only one or two country performances.

But that's not all, folks!

Taylor's friend and opening act Ed Sheeran is also slated to perform with fellow Brit Elton John.

The Grammys air Feb. 10 on CBS.
