Kacey Musgraves and Taylor Swift are sharing their excitement and appreciation for their Grammy nominations. 

Kacey tweeted, "FOUR?! Dang, y'all!...So surreal!"  She added a "THANK YOU" in all caps, along with her congratulations to all the nominees. 

Taylor tweeted a run-on sentence using only capital letters, and references her inattention to grammar rules in saying, quote, "I LOVE YOU GUYS WE GOT AN ALBUM OF THE YEAR NOMINATION AND I AM TOO EXCITED TO USE PUNCTUATION." 


Musgraves and Swift lead the country nominees heading into the 56th annual Grammy Awards, with four bids each.  They both have bids for Best Country Album and Best Country Song -- Kacey is competing against herself in that category. 

Swift's Red is also up for Album of the Year and she shares a nod with Tim McGraw and Keith Urban for the song "Highway Don't Care."  Kacey is among the hopefuls for Best New Artist.
