Brothers Osborne, Eric Church, Maren Morris To Perform On 60th GRAMMYs
In addition to honoring musical excellence on Music's Biggest Night, the Recording Academy will also take a moment to honor the victims lost to gun violence and terrorism at various live music events over the course of the past year.
In a special GRAMMY tribute performed by three of the artists who participated in the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas where a tragic shooting occurred on Oct. 1, 2017, current GRAMMY nominees Brothers Osborne and Maren Morris and Eric Church will come together for a touching segment in honor of the victims.
"Live music events have always provided a safe space for fans to gather in a shared celebration of music. Sadly, that wasn't always the case this past year," said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of the Recording Academy. "We believe it's incredibly important to pay tribute to those who lost their lives in these senseless tragedies and to remind musicians and music lovers alike that live music will continue to be a powerful force that unites us all."
Performing for the first time on the GRAMMY stage, Brothers Osborne are nominated this year in Best Country Duo/Group Performance for "It Ain't My Fault." GRAMMY winner Morris is currently nominated for Best Country Solo Performance for "I Could Use A Love Song."
Previously announced GRAMMY performers include Alessia Cara, Cardi B, Miley Cyrus, Childish Gambino, Daddy Yankee, Luis Fonsi, Elton John, Kesha, Khalid, Lady Gaga, Kendrick Lamar, Little Big Town, Logic, Patti LuPone, Bruno Mars, Pink, Ben Platt, Sam Smith, SZA, and U2.
Hosted by award-winning television personality and performer James Corden, the 60th GRAMMY Awards will be broadcast live from Madison Square Garden in New York on CBS on Sunday, Jan. 28 at 7:30 p.m. ET/4:30 p.m. PT.
