Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton, Alabama Shakes, More Nab Awards at 2018 Grammys

GrammyLogo-620

Heading into the 60th Annual Grammy Awards over the weekend, yet another large spread of local artists were up for nominations, even if Nashville was lacking on the rock side this year (which, as a whole, was underrepresented, at something of an uneven and under-watched broadcast). And, of course, Nashville artists took home plenty of awards, with the likes of Chris StapletonJason IsbellAlabama Shakes, the Nashville SymphonyCeCe WinansReba McEntire, and Little Big Town all bagging trophies.

Not just on the award and nomination side, though, Music City is and has long been an integral part of the Grammys’ DNA, and this year Nashville artists were responsible for numerous memorable performances, including the likes of Little Big Town, a Vegas tribute from Brothers Osbourne, Eric Church, and Maren Morris (who also debuted an incredible pop video during the commercials), a Chris Stapleton and Emmylou Harris tribute to Tom Petty, a duet between Elton John and Nashville’s own Miley Cyrus, and, perhaps the most powerful moment of the show, a star studded ode to the #MeToo movement led by local singer Kesha (who, infuriatingly, was snubbed all night for her empowering new comeback effort Rainbow, further adding to the feeling that the Grammys are far-removed from the pulse of the culture).

Check out all of the local winners and their respective categories, that must-see Kesha performance, and a full list of 2018 Grammy winners below!
