Things are gearing up for the 58th Grammy Awards, and as of this morning, the highly anticipated nominations have arrived. The ceremony will be held in Los Angeles on Feb. 15 and broadcast by CBS. Let the countdown begin!
Since Taylor Swift's album "1989" did not make the deadline for the 2015 Grammy Awards, the album is now up for running this year. And not surprisingly, Swift dominates the nominations. You will also find multiple nominations for Alabama Shakes, Kendrick Lamar, and The Weeknd. We would have expeced to see Adele's "25" album on the list had she released it within the Grammy eligible period of October 1, 2014 - September 30, 2015.
In the country category, Chris Stapleton clearly dominates. His album had disappeared from the charts in the month before CMA's, but after his widely popular performance, he shot right back to the top. This performance was also just in time for the Grammy voters' deadline to submit their ballots.
It'll be a highly competitive year for the Grammys with Artists like Ed Sheeran, The Weeknd, Alabama Shakes, Taylor Swift and Kendrick Lamar all sharing multiple categories. Go ahead and make your bets now on category winners; it is sure to be a tough decision.
