Grammy Nominees Roots Music 2022

Grammy Awards 2022

Nominees – Selected Categories

The Grammys, eh?

Eighty six categories?

Bigger than Ben Hur?

Relevance to the music featured in this corner of the World Wide Web?

Last weekend I went on a trip with friends to a former goldfield region, circa 1850. The first outing since months of COVID lockdowns, it was a joy and inspiring – so maybe it’s time to go down to the river of music and pan for some good stuff.

Sift out Best Solo Pop Performance, Best Metal Performance, Best Melodic Rap Performance, Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song, Best Música Urbana Album, Best Regional Mexican Music Album (Including Tejano), Best Children’s Music Album, Best Recording Package, Best Remixed Recording, Best Immersive Audio Album, Best Classical Compendium, Best Contemporary Classical Composition and a few others and it’s starting to show some real nuggets.

Music that speaks to us. Plus we get to revisit some of the nominees’ images we have compiled over the journey.
