resetting the stage for grammy night

As the Grammy Awards prepare to return to Los Angeles, the nominations for the 61st annual ceremony come at a time of forward motion for The Recording Academy, which is transforming to better reflect the music community it honors. The number of nominees jumps from five to eight in the four general categories, in one of the most sweeping changes since the awards’ introduction in 1959. A new voting cohort will help decide the 2019 winners; in June, The Recording Academy invited 900 new individuals — all of whom are female, people of color and/or under the age of 39 — to join its ranks and build a membership more representative of the creative community. The action was recommended by a 16-member task force established in May and charged with reviewing…

pop’s identity crisis

Look at the names of the most surprising snubs from the 2018 crop of nominees in the Grammy Awards’ major categories and you’ll notice a recurring theme: Taylor Swift. Ariana Grande. The Carters. Camila Cabello. Even Sam Smith and P!nk. Despite the Big Four categories — album, song and record of the year, and best new artist — expanding from five to eight nominees this year, many of the world’s biggest pop stars are nowhere to be found. And that’s in spite of the fact that, in the past three years, most of the top categories were won almost exclusively by blockbuster pop names like Adele, Bruno Mars, Ed Sheeran and, yes, Taylor Swift. Big Pop has been left out in the cold at the 2019 Grammys. The major categories have…

where have all the cowboys gone?

From the beginning, the country music uniform has telegraphed the genre’s evolution. Gene Autry’s 1930s cowboy get-up spoke to country’s down-to-earth roots. Dandier silhouettes worn by Hank Williams in the ’50s developed in tandem with The Nashville Sound, followed by the glitzed-out ’60s and ’70s outfits that channeled Dolly Parton camp. Garth Brooks’ Wranglers-and-Ropers approach signified a return to down-home traditionalism in the ’90s. So with country-pop crossovers becoming a defining trend of 2018, what has become of Music City’s newest cowboys? They’ve gone mainstream. The red carpet at the Country Music Association Awards in November echoed the adventurous textures and contemporary shapes that have flooded broader industry awards shows. Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard was decked out in Versace with punk-leaning chain metal details. Ryan Hurd rocked gold Dolce & Gabbana,…
