Brandi Carlile, Keb’ Mo', Molly Tuttle Receive Grammy Award Nominations

Brandi Carlile, Alison Krauss, Keb’ Mo, Bonnie Raitt and Molly Tuttle are among the roots artists receiving nominations for the 65th Annual Grammy Awards, to be presented on February 5 on CBS.

Carlile’s In These Silent Days will compete for Album of the Year and Best Americana Album. In addition, “You and Me on the Rock” (featuring Lucius) is nominated for Record of the Year, Best Americana Performance, and Best American Roots Song, while “Broken Horses” is on the ballot for Best Rock Performance and Best Rock Song.

Krauss and Robert Plant share nominations for Best Country Duo/Group Performance (“Going Where the Lonely Go”) and Best Americana Album (Raise the Roof). In addition, the composition “High and Lonesome” earned Plant and co-writer T Bone Burnett a Best American Roots Song nomination.

Keb’ Mo’ returns to the ballot in the category of Best Americana Album with Good to Be…. His 2019 album, Oklahoma, is a past winner in the category. (Read our BGS interview with Keb’ Mo’.)

Bonnie Raitt’s “Just Like That,” which she wrote, is nominated for Song of the Year and Best American Roots Song. Another of Raitt’s recordings, “Made Up Mind,” is nominated for Best Americana Performance. Her album Just Like That… is up for Best Americana Album.

In a rarity for bluegrass artists, Molly Tuttle secured a high-profile Best New Artist nomination in addition to a placement in the Best Bluegrass Album category (for Molly Tuttle & Golden Highway’s Crooked Tree). Read our BGS interview with Molly Tuttle.)
