Texas artists score several Grammy nominations

Early Tuesday morning, the Grammy Academy released their 2018 nominations -- and several Texans made the cut.

Some of the Texas artists include Khalid, Miranda Lambert, Maren Morris, Kelly Clarkson and MercyMe.

Khalid of El Paso tops the Texas list with five Grammy nominations including Best New Artist. His other nominations include Best Urban Contemporary Album, Best R&B Song for "Location," and two nominations for his feature in "1-800-273-8255" including Song of the Year and Best Music Video.

Khalid shared his excitement via Twitter.

Miranda Lambert scored two nominations for her song "Tin Man," including Best Country Song and Best Country Solo Performance. Country singer and Arlington native Maren Morris will give Lambert some competition, as she also scored a Best Country Solo Performance nomination for her song "I Could Use a Love Song."

Kelly Clarkson locked in one nomination for Best Pop Solo Performance for her song "Love So Soft," while Christian band MercyMe scored one nomination for Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song for their song "Even If."

Closer to home, Dripping Springs band Midland scored nominations for Best Duo/Group Performance and Best County Song for their hit "Drinkin' Problem." And San Antonio rockers Nothing More were nominated for Best Rock Album with "The Stories We Tell Ourselves," as well as Best Rock Performance and Best Rock Song with "Go to War."
