When it comes time for the Grammys to announce their upcoming nominees, we here in Acadiana have a little something extra to be excited about. That's because we have so many incredibly talented musicians and songwriters that get nominated year after year. The 2018 Grammy Award nominees have just been announced, and here are our local nominees!

Final-round voting for the 60th Grammy Awards will take place Dec. 7th –21th, 2017.

Good luck to all of our local musicians! The local musicians are in bold.
