These Local Austin Artists Were Nominated for the 64th Grammy Awards

Austin isn’t nicknamed the live music capital of the Live Music Capital for nothing. The Grammy nominations have recently been released and many local Austin artists have nominations in several categories this year! The Grammys will be held in Los Angeles on January 31st and can be watched live on CBS at 8 pm. These are the local Austin artists you won’t want to miss!

Willie Nelson

Willie Nelson has won 10 Grammys throughout his career and is currently up for a Grammy in the Traditional Pop Vocal Album category for the song “That’s My Life.” This song is his second tribute to Frank Sinatra, and the first tribute won a Grammy three years ago — so high hopes!

Black Pumas

Black Pumas are a psychedelic soul and rock band out of duo Eric Burton, who sings and writes songs, and Adrian Quesada, their guitarist and producer. To date they’ve been nominated six times in various categories. This is their third year in a row and they are nominated for Best Rock Album and Best Rock Performance for their Capitol Cuts album. 

Jack Ingram

Country artist Jack Ingram has been nominated this year for Best Country Album for his album The Marfa Tapes. This would be a joint win for Jack as the album is a collaborative piece with Miranda Lambert and Jon Randall.

Sarah and Shauna Dodds

Sara and Shauna are sisters that together run Backstage Design Studio. These Austin artists have been nominated for the upcoming Grammy awards in the category Best Recording Package for their work on Reckless Kelly’s album set American Jackpot and American Girls. They’ve had two wins so far and have been nominated six times previously.


Conspirare is an Austin-based choral ensemble led by Craig Hella Johnson. This will be their 10th Grammy nomination, this time in the category Best Choral Performances for their song “The Singing Guitar,” which features contributions by two guitar quartets in Texas and a few other artists.

Kacey Musgraves

Kacey Musgraves is not technically from Austin, but we can’t skip on the Texas pride! She’s previously won six Grammys and this year has been nominated in both the category for Best Country Song and the category for Best Country Solo Performance for her song “Camera Roll.”
