The Recording Academy has invited CMA Female Vocalist of the Year Carly Pearce to help announce this year’s GRAMMY nominees. She will join members of the Academy leadership and other creators on Tuesday, November 23 at 9:00A PT.  Watch live on 

“I am honored that the Recording Academy asked me to be a part of their live stream announcing this year’s nominees. The Grammy Awards represent musicians across all genres recognizing their peers. Most people, especially creative people, listen to more than one or two kinds of music, so what makes the Grammy such an honor is the idea your music was heard in places beyond where it was expected… and it moved people the way music from the soul does regardless of what you call it,” Pearce says of the honor.
