It’s that time of year! The 2020 GRAMMY Awards will air January 26 in the U.S., and it’s no surprise to see a wide representation of TuneCore Artists – former and current – in the distinguished pool of nominees.

Whether they’ve been with us since the beginning, headed off to life at a label, or just drop in from time to time to keep 100% of their revenue on releases, we are infinitely impressed by the strides made by these nominees, and we’re grateful to have welcomed them into the TuneCore Artist community at some point. Wishing everyone the best of luck!
