1. Miranda Lambert, ”Mama’s Broken Heart”
Lambert — who’s up for Best Country Solo Performance as well as Best Country Song (with writers Brandy Clark, Shane McAnally, and Kacey Musgraves) for this one — essentially squeezes four great country songs into 2 minutes and 58 seconds: a breakup lament, revenge fantasy, generational manifesto, and feminist anthem. All the more reason to put it on repeat.
