Simpson's latest album is lauded by critics. And that was enough to garner the alternative country effort a Grammy nod in the Album of the Year category. Simpson is going up against acclaimed albums by popular artists—Queen Bey's "Lemonade," Drake's "Views," Justin Bieber's "Purpose" and Adele's "25." That's how good "A Sailor's Guide to Earth" is—it can compete with this year's most popular albums.

Shelton's "If I'm Honest" didn't get the same acclaim as "A Sailor's Guide to Earth." But Shelton is one hell of a country superstar with another popular effort under his belt. "The Voice" coach garnered yet another #1 country album and a top five Billboard 200 album earlier this year. The album's success lead to him gaining 2016's 3rd most popular country album, according to Billboard.
