Last evening the Grammys honored almost a dozen artists with Lifetime Achievement Awards throughout the “Great Performances: GRAMMY Salute To Music Legends” tribute particular. Two John Prine songs had been carried out: “Storm Windows” (Jason Isbell and Amanda Shires) and “I Remember Everything” (Brandi Carlile). Yola lined Sister Rosetta Tharpe’s “Up Above My Head, I Hear Music In The Air” from Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium and Laurie Anderson carried out a rendition of Philip Glass’ “Gee Whiz.” The program is accessible in full on demand at PBS and on the PBS Video app. Watch it under.
Earlier this summer season, the Recording Academy announced sweeping adjustments to its guidelines and tips for the Grammys, together with the renaming of a number of classes. Valeisha Butterfield Jones was appointed the Grammys’ first Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer in April.
