They’re Back! 60th Grammy Awards

60th Grammy Awards, Tomorrow!

The first few months of the new year are probably the most hectic, people worry about kicking off their resolutions for the new year, going to the gym every other day, and of course who can forget about Super Bowl Sunday. However, for those of us who live, breathe, and eat music, January is known for another reason… the Grammy Awards. Our favorite artists who have helped us relax in times of stress, overcome broken hearts, and have even made us laugh when we feel like crying, are finally going to be rewarded for all of their hard work over the past year.

The 60th Grammy awards will air tomorrow, January 28th from New York City and will be filled with performances by Chris Stapleton, Bruno Mars, Daddy Yankee, Lady Gaga, and countless others. These performances will not only remind us why we fell in love with these artists, but show us how they inspire each other. Nothing makes us happier than a shot of the crowd where a fellow artist is singing their heart out from their seat.

With eighty-four categories including Best Performances, Album of the Year, and Best Music Film to name a few; it’s safe to say all of our favorites will be mentioned. Plus, how can we forget that the hilarious and dashing, carpool karaoke king will be hosting! Yes that’s right, James Corden will be making us laugh throughout the night as we root for our favorite artists.

With all of these off the chart performers under one roof, the 60th Grammy awards is guaranteed to be one for the books. However, even though each of these artists deserves an award there can only be one in each category. Here are some of our predictions for the winners of the 60th Grammy awards! *Drumroll Please*

A few winning predictions:

Record of the Year: The Story of O.J. by JAY-Z (who we covered on his 4:44 tour), produced by No I.D., Jimmy Douglass & Gimel, “Young Guru” Keaton, and Dave Kutch.


Song of The Year: That’s What I Like by Bruno Mars. With a beat that makes you want to start dancing no matter your location, this song is super catchy, and even as we’re writing this, the chorus is running through our heads.  Not to mention Bruno’s heavenly voice.


Best Pop Solo Performance: Shape of You by Ed Sheeran. It was so hard to narrow this one down, but out favorite Englishman took the lead for his catchy track. This song has been played countless times in the club and really sets the mood for a night with the significant other.  

Best Rock Performance: The Promise by Chris Cornell. The track which was originally released in 2014, pulls at your heartstrings even more since the loss of two of rock and roll’s favorite sons. Both Cornell, and Chester Bennington lead vocalist for Linkin Park were lost in 2017.


Best Country Duo/Group Performance: My Old Man by Zac Brown Band. Shutter 16 had the honor of covering the Zac Brown Band last year and it was such an amazing experience and was a night our photographer will never forget.

Zac Brown Band 3

The track My Old Man was released last year on ZBB’s fifth studio album Welcome Home and brought on a feeling of nostalgia for many.
