The Recording Academy’s GRAMMY Recordings and RCA Records have teamed to release the 2015 GRAMMY Nominees album, which will be available January 20, 2015, in stores and via digital retailers. The 21st installment of the best-selling series will feature an array of this year’s GRAMMY-nominated artists and hit songs across multiple genres. A portion of the proceeds from sales of the album will help support the year-round efforts of the GRAMMY Foundation and MusiCares Foundation — two charitable organizations of The Recording Academy. In conjunction with A Very GRAMMY Christmas, music fans can log on to GRAMMY.com, GRAMMY.com/2015GRAMMYAlbum or CBS.com to pre-order the album and enter for a chance to win a trip for two to the 57th Annual GRAMMY Awards on Sunday, February 8, 2015, at Staples Center in Los Angeles.
“We are truly proud to partner with RCA Records to present our annual compilation featuring a group of highly talented artists across a variety of genres,” said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of The Recording Academy. “This great collection of music, coupled with the sweepstakes opportunity that will allow two lucky fans a chance to experience Music’s Biggest Night firsthand, constitutes an extremely fulfilling project, with proceeds supporting the crucial work our charitable foundations perform throughout the year.”
“It is an absolute honor to work with The Recording Academy on the 2015 GRAMMY Nominees album and celebrate Music’s Biggest Night,” said Tom Corson, President & COO, RCA Records. “This album will showcase the year’s top nominated songs by artists from across all genres. We are also proud to participate in The Academy’s charitable endeavors, which include the continuing support of music education across the country.”
A Very GRAMMY Christmas airs on the CBS Television Network on Friday, December 5 at 9th at 10 p.m. ET/PT. The new one-hour special will feature performances of holiday songs and current pop hits, as well as artists sharing favorite holiday memories and GRAMMY moments.
