RCA RECORDS and THE RECORDING ACADEMY's GRAMMY RECORDINGS will release the 2015 GRAMMY NOMINEES album in stores and via digital retailers on JANUARY 20th.
The 21st installment of the best-selling series features 21 top-charting hits from this year's GRAMMY-nominated artists and songwriters. In conjunction with the album's release, music fans will have the opportunity to win trips to the 57th or 58th Annual GRAMMY AWARDS.
The 2015 GRAMMY NOMINEES album includes many of the year's prominent recordings and performers, highlighted by all of the nominated artists and songs in the high-profile Record Of The Year, Album Of The Year, Song Of The Year, Best Pop Vocal Album, Best Pop Solo Performance, and Best Country Duo Or Group Performance categories.
The collection is made possible by a special arrangement with all of the major music distribution companies. A portion of the proceeds from sales of the album benefits the year-round efforts of the GRAMMY FOUNDATION and MUSICARES FOUNDATION — two charitable organizations of THE RECORDING ACADEMY.
