12 May The Grammys to Debate Category for Free Music After Chance’s Petition
I know, we said we would stop covering anything Grammys! But this… This is good news people.
International Business Times indicates that talks might be underway to make the category for free releases a reality.
“The Grammy Awards process is fluid and, like music, continues to evolve,” an academy spokesperson emailed IBT. “As a peer-voted award, the awards process is also peer-determined. Each spring, music creators in the community work with Recording Academy staff to prepare and submit proposals, which are then reviewed by the Board and announced shortly thereafter.”
If you have yet to, sign the official petition through Change.Org, which is approaching 28,000 signatures at press time.
