Female voices take center stage at Grammys
The 2019 Grammys are shaping up to be the year of the woman.
Kacey Musgraves, H.E.R. and Janelle Monae, performers who play instruments, write or cowrite all of their songs and are also listed as producers on their projects, earned nominations for the coveted album of the year.
They are joined by singer-songwriter-instrumentalist Brandi Carlile, whose recent album scored nominations in the big three categories, and Cardi B – now competing for both album and record of the year.
