Our newest contributor weighs in with his thoughts on the nominations for the 55th annual Grammy Awards which were announced Wednesday. Winners will be revealed on Feb. 10 with CBS airing the live portion of the kudocast that evening.  Good There actually seems to be some variety in this year’s nominations, which is a major improvement over last year’s when many of them came from the pop field. This year you have different genres represented including folk, rock, alternative, R&B as well as pop. The general field nominees truly feel representative of the music that mattered on both a critical and commercial level in 2012. The nominations of Frank Ocean, Fun., Mumford and Sons, Kelly Clarkson, Gotye and the Black Keys show a willingness to reward what should be on their radar rather than having us talk about what the Grammys should be rewarding. -Insertgroups:12- No country music in the general field. »
