Grammy Predictions: Best Country Collaboration with Vocals

There is only one nominee that will win and should win say Gold Derby's music experts David Schnelwar and Darrin Dortch, while just one other could be the spoiler. This is the fourth of six country categories with predictions made already for Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals, Best Male Country Vocal Performance and Best Female Country Vocal Performance.

BEST COUNTRY COLLABORATION WITH VOCALS
“Bad Angel,” Dierks Bentley, Miranda Lambert & Jamey Johnson
“Pride (In the Name of Love), “ Dierks Bentley, Del McCoury & The Punch Brothers
“As She’s Walking Away,” Zac Brown Band & Alan Jackson
“Hillbilly Bone,” Blake Shelton & Trace Adkins
“I Run To You,” Marty Stuart & Connie Smith

David's take: I think Dierks Bentley, Miranda Lambert and Jamey Johnson's "Bad Angel" will win because all three of them are nominated for Best Country Album. The collaborations of Zac Brown Band & Alan Jackson's "As She's Walking Away" and Blake Shelton & Trace Adkins' "Hillbilly Bone" could both upset

Will win: Dierks Bentley, Miranda Lambert & Jamey Johnson, "Bad Angel"
Should win: Dierks Bentley, Miranda Lambert & Jamey Johnson, "Bad Angel"
Spoiler: Zac Brown Band & Alan Jackson, "As She's Walking Away"

Darrin's take: The star power of Bentley, Lambert and Johnson should easily give them the win here. However, if that track splits votes with the other Bentley collaboration, look for reigning Best New Artist champs Zac Brown Band and Alan Jackson to win.

Will win: Dierks Bentley, Miranda Lambert & Jamey Johnson, "Bad Angel"
Should Win: Dierks Bentley, Miranda Lambert & Jamey Johnson, "Bad Angel"
Spoiler: Zac Brown Band & Alan Jackson, "As She's Walking Away"
