Alexandra Kay Predicts Grammy Awards Nomination in 2026

Alexandra Kay is making a bold — but likely correct — prediction about her success in country music. The singer-songwriter, who has been selling out shows all over the world and having hit singles, all as an independent artist, says she will be present at the Grammy Awards in 2026.

“Y’all give me two years… two years and I’ll be on that stage,” Kay wrote on social media. “I can feel it..and I will work my butt off for it.”


Kay indeed isn’t afraid of hard work. The Illinois native released her debut All I’ve Ever Known album in October, which debuted at No. 1 on the iTunes Country chart, and No. 4 on the all-genre iTunes album chart. The heartfelt project was a very personal, in-depth look at Kay’s life, including her heartbreaking split from her husband, Indiana.

“A peek inside the past decade, who I was and who I’ve become, what I thought I knew and what I’ve learned,” Kay said when the record was announced. “It is a story of the hardest year I’ve ever faced wrapped in honesty and vulnerability.”

Kay later said she dealt with her complicated feelings about her divorce in writing, unaware that the songs would become her first full-length record.

“I’m going through a divorce from my ex who I was with for a decade,” Kay shared with Music Mayhem. “I pretty much just became 13 again. The only way that I knew how to process this extreme loss in my life and the grief that I was feeling was to write about it, and that’s exactly what I did. And so, I’ve always been vulnerable in my music, but this is by far the most I think raw and real and unapologetic I’ve been when it comes to writing.”

Kay wasn’t afraid to share her own vulnerability in all of the songs on All I’ve Ever Known, with songs like “Everleave,” “Painted Him Perfect” and more. But she also used the project to honor her best friend, Lindsey, with the feel-good song, “She Stayed.”

“When my husband and I split, my best friend never left my side so I wrote this song for her,” Kay explained.

Kay, who expanded her fanbase exponentially when she joined  Tim McGraw on his McGraw Tour 2022, has continued to sell out venues on her own headlining tours, with the trend already continuing this year. Kay has plenty of tour dates on the calendar in 2024, including a series of headlining shows in Europe, and her first-ever performance at Faster Horses Festival in July.
