The 2023 Grammy nominations were announced yesterday, with Brandi Carlile and Lizzo scoring nods in multiple categories.

The 2023 Grammy nominations were announced yesterday, with queer artist Brandi Carlile and Lizzo (Lizzo insinuated that she *might* be a member of the LGBTQ community in this Buzzfeed video) scoring nods in multiple categories.

Carlile was nominated for seven awards, including Record of the Year (“You and Me On the Rock”), Album of the Year (“In These Silent Days”), and Best Rock Performance and Best Rock Song (both for “Broken Horses”). Her total nominations are the most Carlile has received in one year, topping her 2019 total of six. 

She is currently tied with Adele for seven nominations this year, trailing only behind Kendrick Lamar (who has eight) and Beyoncé (who has nine), The Seattle Times reports.

Just behind Carlile is Lizzo with six nominations, including Album of the Year (“Special”), Record of the Year, Song of the Year (“About Damn Time”) and Best Pop Solo Performance (the last three all for “About Damn Time”).   

“[Six] nominations?!?!?! Thank YOU” Lizzo posted on Twitter and Instagram, along with an image of “Special” album cover that included a list of her nominations.

Carlile also took a moment to share the moment with fans on Twitter. “I watched these honors rolls out this morning one by one holding Evangeline’s hand and screaming!” she wrote, referring to her daughter (and inspiration behind the song “The Mother”).
