The Recording Academy has announced the nominees for the 2020 Grammy Awards, and several Texans are up for prizes.
Texas giants — and frequent Grammy winners — like Willie Nelson and Beyonce are unsuprisingly on the list, but there are some relative newcomers.
Lizzo received a whopping eight nominations. The singer and rapper got her start in Houston, where she studied classical music at the University of Houston.
She shot to superstardom this year with her runaway hit “Truth Hurts.”
Grapevine native Post Malone got a Record of the Year nod for his chart-topper “Sunflower.”
The song, a collaboration with rapper Swae Lee, was featured in “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” and became a Billboard Hot 100 number one hit.
Khalid, who grew up in El Paso, is also nominated in the Record of the Year category for “Talk.”
West Texas country star Tanya Tucker received four Grammy nominations, with much of the praise going to her searing ballad “Bring My Flowers Now.”
Fellow Texas country stars Miranda Lambert and Maren Morris were also nominated.
Austin-based blues musician Gary Clark Jr. received mulitple nominations for “This Land,” a fiery rebuke of racism in America. The song’s music video is also nominated.
The Grammy Awards will be announced on January 26.
