Chris Stapleton, Little Big Town Top Country Grammy Nominations

I'ma Let Y'all Finish But These Artists Got Snubbed In This Year's Grammy Nominations

As music's most important governing body, the Recording Academy annually does very little to protect that institution. With those three worthy artists appearing multiple times in major categories, the Academy is showing a rare embrace of diverse genres and quality.

All the nominees for the Record of the Year category are all artists of colour, except for Justin Bieber, who collaborated with Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee, on the hit song "Despacito". Jay will also go head-to-head with Mars for Song of the Year. The Rock and Alternative categories are completely dominated by men, while the Best New Artist category might be the strongest of the year in terms of representation with Alessia Cara, Khalid, Lil Uzi Vert, Julia Michaels, and SZA all nominated. Little Big Town earned mentions for Best Country Song, Best Country Album (The Breaker) and Best Country Duo/Group Performance for "Better Man".

With two nominations, Cardi B is shaking up the category.

Among the nominees with Chicago ties, Lyric Opera music director Andrew Davis received a nod for best choral performance (Handel's "Messiah"), Justin Roberts received a nomination for best children's album ("Lemonade") and Austin-via-Chicago music writer Michael Corcoran was acknowledged for best album liner notes and best historical album ("Washington Phillips and his Manzarene Dreams"). Twenty-seven-time Grammy victor Alison Krauss, the leading victor among female artists in Grammy history, scored two nominations for tracks from her Windy City LP, "Losing You" and "I Never Cared for You".

On Tuesday, Jay-Z collected eight nods, Kendrick Lamar seven and producer (and former Chicagoan) No I.D. got five, continuing a yearslong pattern of hip-hop and R&B domination of the nominations.

After the full list of Grammy nominations were published, people had a lot of questions, namely: Just where, exactly, is Drake's nomination? Other artists that are up for major awards include Bruno Mars and Childish Gambino.
