“We’re honored to join forces with the Recording Academy for this year’s iconic Grammy Nominees album,” said Monte Lipman, founder and chairman of Republic Records. “This body of work recognizes a moment in time and music, and more importantly supports artist-related charitable causes. I’m anticipating this year’s lineup will be as strong as any year in recent memory.”
