Taylor Swift gets snubbed for best album, and other Grammy nomination surprises

Taylor Swift gets snubbed for best album, and other Grammy nomination surprisesThose who follow commercial pop music likely predicted that 2019 breakout artists Lizzo and Billie Eilish would earn a lot of love at the 62nd Grammy Awards, which they did. Those who bet against Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road” failed to grasp what’s been obvious to most everyone else all year: It’s an eminently lovable and groundbreaking hit.
