Congrats to our many Epiphone artists who will be attending the GRAMMY awards this weekend including Epiphone Signature artist Brent Hinds
and his band Mastodon
who have been nominated for Best Rock Album
for their 2017 release, Emperor of Sand
Epi fan Jack Antonoff, who performed at the Epiphone/Gibson Brands booth at this month's CES show (see photo), has been nominated as a producer for his work with Lorde and already is a lock-in to be nominated as a producer and songwriter for the 2019 GRAMMYs, too for his work on Taylor Swift's album, Reputation
, the fastest selling album of 2017.
The Alabama Shakes, featuring Epi fan Heath Fogg
are up for Best American Roots Performance
for "Killer Diller Blues" from the PBS special American Epic,
which featured Epi artists Dominic Davis
and Fats Kaplin
. And Epiphone Olympic
fan David Rawlings
is up for Best American Roots Song
for "Cumberland Gap." Last but not least, The Rolling Stones are up for Best Traditional Blues Album
for Blue & Lonesome
which--by the sounds of it--might feature Keith Richards
playing his 1941 Epiphone Zephyr Delux Regent.
Epiphone will also be present in the GRAMMY lounge this year in support of the Truth Initiative's award-winning anti-smoking Truth®
campaign. Look for more updates, custom GRAMMY guitars, and more soon and good luck to all of our artists!
