Roots rock singer/songwriter Sturgill Simpson is the only outlier in the Best Album of the Year category, which also includes Adele, Beyoncé, Drake and Justin Bieber. Record of the Year and Song of the Year only features mainstream artists. The Recording Academy then uses those same artists for ...

Difficult decisions are made based on a variety of variables (perhaps some of you even make lists of pros and cons), and ultimately, a show is chosen. But those ...
