The nominations are in, and the nominees are no surprise if you have been listening to country radio lately.
This year will mark the 60th anniversary of the recording industry award.
The first Grammy Awards ceremony was held on May 4, 1959, to honor and respect the musical accomplishments by performers for the year 1958. The award derives its name from the invention of Emile Berliner, the gramophone. In the first ceremony, 28 GRAMMYS were handed out to winners.
The annual event always features performances from nominated artists and the presentation of awards. The actual awards aren’t engraved until after winners announced, so the ones you see on television are dummy trophies.
We celebrate with those amazing country artist that are being recognized.
