It has been another amazing year for music, and the time has comes to hand out some trophies to our favorite artists. The 61st annual GRAMMY Awards announced the nominees Friday morning, and there are more of them than ever before. This year four of the top categories are expanding to include more musicians than in years past. The Album Of The Year, Song Of The Year, Record Of The Year, and Best New Artist categories.will jump from five to eight nominees each. That makes the debate to see who will land of top nearly twice as heated, and allows for more artists to get the recognition we know they deserve. On top of that is was a STRONG year for reggae of all sorts so even with 5 options there will be some glaring snubs(ahem Rebelution*)

 

Best Reggae Album:

As The World Turns - Black Uhuru

Reggae Forever - Etana

Rebellion Rises - Ziggy Marley

A Matter Of Time - Protoje

44/876 - Sting & Shaggy
