|Grammy Award for Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal|
|Awarded for||Quality vocal country music duo or group performance|
|Presented by||National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences|
|Currently held by||Lady Antebellum – "Need You Now" (2010)|
The Grammy Award for Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal was awarded from 1970 to 2011. The award has had several minor name changes:
- In 1970 the award was known as Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group
- From 1971 to 1981 it was awarded as Best Country Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group
- From 1982 to the present it has been awarded as Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal
The award was discontinued after the 2011 Grammy Awards in a major overhaul of Grammy categories. From 2012, all duo or group performances in the country category were shifted to the newly formed Best Country Duo/Group Performance category.
Years reflect the year in which the Grammy Awards were presented, for works released in the previous year.
Both Dixie Chicks and The Judds have been honored with 5 awards in this category. Other multiple winners include Alison Krauss and Union Station, and Emmylou Harris who have won 3 apiece, and Asleep at the Wheel, Brooks and Dunn, Alabama, Rita Coolidge & Kris Kristofferson and Lady Antebellum all of whom have won 2.
