The nominees for the 56th Annual GRAMMY Awards were announced yesterday, and as such it's come time to talk a little bit about their "Children's" category (which would be more aptly titled "Family" at this point). I have mixed feeling about the GRAMMYs overall, me being in the camp of people that finds the overall award system to be archaic, out-of-touch, and largely irrelevant. The nominees are often a crapshoot, and the winners... well, sometimes you have circumstances like the infamous upset of 1988 where JETHRO TULL's CREST OF A KNAVE beat out METALLICA's ...AND JUSTICE FOR ALL in the Hard Rock/Metal category, or how certain "older" artists seem to win a GRAMMY based simply on the fact that they released an album that year (check out the archives). While I've only been involved in the family music scene for a few years now (and for the past two, a judge for the Fids & Kamily Music Awards), I can say that the nominees for the Children's category can be equally curious, yet I'm certainly happy for everyone that finds themselves nominated. Here's my thoughts on the 2014 Children's GRAMMY Nominees... and who should win.
