Here Are The 2023 Grammy Nominations

Did you favorites make the list? (Jelly, Jelly, Jelly)

The 67th annual Grammy Awards will happen February 4th in L.A., broadcast on CBS and Paramount+, and it is definitely music’s biggest night. In a bio, musicians and performers always list their Grammy award activity first. Just being nominated is a really really big deal. And, if you get to perform during the broadcast, you have a real opportunity to launch a career, take one to the top level, or even make history!

Taylor Swift just made history with her Anti-Hero nomination for song of the year. This breaks a Grammys record as the first songwriter to score seven nominations in the category. Paul McCartney and Lionel Richie who are tied with six each.

This year SZA gets the headline of being the artist who has the most nominations with nine, (Taylor has six), and solo women account for six of the eight nominations for both record and album of the year. That’s a HUGE improvement from times past when many talented artists were overlooked in these categories.

Let’s take a look at the competition this year. Very nice to see so many WBNQ core artists nominated!
