The 2024 GRAMMY Award nominations are in—recognizing 30 artists who have rocked Levitt stages across the country across 38 different categories! We are thrilled to congratulate these nominees and celebrate their exceptional artistry ranging from reggae to regional roots, to pop, to children’s music—reflecting the broad range of musical styles presented on Levitt stages.  

The Recording Academy’s selection presents many special moments to celebrate: The War and Treaty up for Best New Artist; Nnenna Freelon and Pierce Freelon, the first mother and son to be nominated for individual Grammy’s in 2022, teaming up for a children’s album; and Vijay Iyer being recognized in the inaugural Best Alternative Jazz Album category. Among the dynamic group of performers are two Levitt National Tour past headliners: gospel royalty, Blind Boys of Alabama (2018) and mariachi powerhouse, Flor de Toloache (2019).  

Check out the full list of nominated artists who have performed on Levitt stages below and tune into the 66th GRAMMY Awards on Sunday, February 4, 2024, from 8–11:30 p.m. ET / 5–8:30 p.m. PT. on the CBS Television Network and streaming on Paramount+.
