Billy Strings is being added to the lineup of performers at the 64th Grammy Awards this Sunday.
He’ll take his signature bluegrass pickin’ to Las Vegas, joining country artists Chris Stapleton and Carrie Underwood on the list, along with artists from other genres like John Legend, Silk Sonic, Jon Batiste, H.E.R. and plenty of others, who are all set to perform on music’s biggest night of the year in a few days:
“Billy Strings is bringing bluegrass to the GRAMMYs!
The GRAMMY winner and current nominee will be performing in a special segment that will showcase Las Vegas and spotlight genres not historically represented on the GRAMMY Awards telecast.”
His highly acclaimed 2021 album, Renewal, has been nominated for Best Bluegrass Album, and Billy also received a nom for Best American Roots Performance for “Love and Regret”.
Chris is up for three Grammys this year, including Best Country Solo Performance for “You Should Probably Leave,” Best Country Song for “Cold,” and Best Country Album for Starting Over.
And Carrie, who’s already a seven-time Grammy winner, is up for Best Country Duo/Group Performance for “If I Didn’t Love You” with Jason Aldean, as well as Best Roots Gospel Album for her 2021 record My Savior.
The 64th Grammy awards show was originally set to air on March 14th at 8PM ET on CBS, but was pushed back to this Sunday, April 3rd, due to COVID. I have to say, knowing these three will all be performing might make it worth watching this year.
Billy stopped by The Late Show With Stephen Colbert a couple weeks ago to play “Know It All”, from his aforementioned album, and it will be awesome to see him take such a big stage and play for a national audience on Sunday:
