For the first time in Nashville, the Grammy Nominations event was held at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. It was great to be able to attend this event and see some crew members as well as the Shure Artists that attended this year.
What Shure Artists, you say? OK, so here’s the rundown:
fun., Luke Bryan, Maroon 5, Dierks Bentley, The Band Perry, and newly signed Shure Artist Hunter Hayes all performed on the show. Shure Artist Sheryl Crow appeared to announce along side Chris Young. To top it all off, Maroon 5 performed a 40 minute set after the hour long broadcast.
Let’s talk nominations! Several Shure Artists are up for awards including: Mumford & Sons, fun., Arturo Sandoval, The Civil Wars, The Black Keys, Alabama Shakes, Maroon 5, Chris Botti, Megadeth, The Roots, Dierks Bentley, Ronnie Dunn, Little Big Town, Al Jarreau, Casting Crowns, TobyMac, Fonseca, Lila Downs, Dailey & Vincent, and Dr. John.
