Music: Favorite Grammy Artists

With last weekend's Grammy Awards, I felt it fitting to dedicate a Tuesday Music Link-up Party to my favorite Grammy Artists from both past and present. Feel free to join in on the party (details at the end of the post)! I'd love to hear your picks as I'm always up for some music! Here are my Grammy picks.

This year, my favorite Grammy winner was not Adele, like most people (Although I do love her music! Don't get me wrong!). I was most excited about the Best Blues Album winner-- Tedeschi Trucks Band with Revelator. Here's a little look at the making of Revelator.



I'd be silly to skip U2, the band with a whopping 22 Grammys.

1988 Best Performance Music Video


Remember my love for the Chili Peppers? Couldn't leave them out!

1992 Best Hard Rock Performance With Vocal


I also can't leave out the Foo Fighters, another band of my generation. From a music nerd standpoint, the production on The Pretender is phenomenal. It's one of those songs that sounds better with a pair of noise-cancelling headphones.

2007 Best Hard Rock Performance


I loved the Alison Krauss and Robert Plant collaboration and was even lucky enough to see them play together live. I should add, that with 27 Grammys, Alison Krauss is the most winning female artist.

2008 Record of the Year


I love Seal. Seriously. I'm a rock girl at heart, but I've got almost all of Seal's albums!

1995 Record of the Year


And another time capsule...

1997 Best Rock Song


Little fun fact: In 1997 the same year Jakob Dylan won 2 Grammys for One Headlight, his father, Bob Dylan, also won 3 Grammys, including album of the year.

1997 Best Male Rock Vocal Performance


What are your favorite Grammy artists from the past and present? Grab a button and link up below! Don't forget to link up to the blog post and not your blog home page! Looking forward to listening to your favorite award winning music! And don't forget to link up next week! Next week's topic will be High Fidelity style-- top five songs for a sunny day. I thought I'd stray from the more gruesome top five songs about death (thought maybe I'll revisit that for fun later on).
