The nominations cap off a breakthrough year for the acclaimed singer, songwriter and performer following the release of By The Way, I Forgive You (Low Country Sound/Elektra Records). Produced by Grammy-Award winning producer Dave Cobb and acclaimed musician Shooter Jennings and recorded at Nashville's historic RCA Studio A, the album includes ten new songs written by Carlile and longtime collaborators and bandmates Tim and Phil Hanseroth including "The Joke."
Most recently, Carlile joined forces with Sam Smith on a new duet version of "Party Of One." Recorded at L.A.'s Capitol Studios, a portion of the profits from this recording will be donated to Children in Conflict via Brandi Carlile's Looking Out Foundation as part of its ongoing campaign to raise $1 million for children impacted by war.
Beloved by fans and critics alike, Carlile has performed sold-out concerts across the world and has appeared on various TV shows including The Ellen DeGeneres Show, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, The Tonight Show, The Today Show, Conan and CBS This Morning.
