The Recording Academy Announces GRAMMY Awards Process Changes
At its annual spring meeting, The Recording Academy’s Board of Trustees approved a number of changes to the GRAMMY Awards process, including allowing samples or interpolations of previously written songs in all songwriting categories, including Song Of The Year. Additional changes include establishing a new category for Best American Roots Performance in the American Roots Music Field; changing the name of the Dance/Electronica Field and album category to Dance/Electronic Music Field and Best Dance/Electronic Album; restructuring the categories of the Gospel/Contemporary Christian Music Field; renaming Best Pop Instrumental Album as Best Contemporary Instrumental Album, establishing a new Contemporary Instrumental Music Field, and moving Best Traditional Pop Album into the Pop Field; changing Best Classical Vocal Solo (album or tracks) to Best Classical Solo Vocal Album (albums only); renaming and remaking the Best Instrumental Arrangement and Best Instrumental Arrangement Accompanying Vocals categories as Best Arrangement, Instrumental Or A Cappella and Best Arrangement, Instruments And Vocals, respectively, such that vocal arrangers/arrangements are eligible to compete; and establishing a more official guideline for the Alternative Music Field.
The total number of GRAMMY categories that will be recognized at the 57th Annual GRAMMY Awards on Feb. 8, 2015, is 83.
