CD Baby artists who are nominated for 2020 Grammys

CD Baby artists continue to make huge showing at the Grammys.

CD Baby already saw 18 of our artists nominated for the Latin Grammys last month (more on their success at the ceremony soon), and our artists are continuing their success at the U.S. Grammys.

Over 50 current or former CD Baby artists have been nominated across nearly as many categories.

It’s a perfect showcase for not only our artists’ scope and ambition, but also the wonderfully eclectic nature of independent music. From jazz ensembles to children’s tunes, from roots to contemporary classical and beyond, CD Baby has it all. But enough about us, let’s congratulate the real stars: our artists!
