Presenting The 63rd Annual Grammy Awards Winners

grammy awards logo

Well hello there my friends, I am back once more to discuss the topic of the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards. Now, the show has just recently ended its super long broadcast which was done live in front of a limited audience of artist participants and hosted by Trevor Noah. As expected the Rock and Metal awards were dished out before the broadcast and this narrative will showcase the entire list which we culled through by zipping past the stuff that didn’t interest us all that much. I don’t think I have to point out that I don’t really listen to much of the stuff that was honored do I? So sit back with that last glass of wine before the work week and if you are seeing this with the morning coffee make sure it’s a strong one. Here are your winners….may we have the envelope please.

2019 Grammy Awards Full Winners Rundown

grammy awards logo

The Recording Industry calls this the “Biggest Night In Music” for the year and to fans of some genres out there this is probably true. As a tried and true supporter of Metal and Rock, this is generally a disappointment but that is a matter discussed over on the PiercingMetal.com website and not here on ”The Chronicles” since the audience is a lot more varied. The Grammy’s were given out over the course of the last few hours and I’ve been researching and typing to get them all to you shortly after the broadcast. I didn’t watch more than fifteen minutes of it since “The Walking Dead” was on and that’s more important to me. Also, the disrespect of Rock and Metal with their awards being announced and given out before the broadcast even aired found me discussing the matter on the Metal site on THIS POST so do please check that out if you are so inclined. This list is long so you’re going to want to get comfortable. Here we go.

Record of the Year:
“I Like It” — Cardi B, Bad Bunny and J Balvin
“The Joke” — Brandi Carlile
WINNER: “This Is America” — Childish Gambino
“God’s Plan” — Drake
“Shallow” — Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper
“All the Stars” — Kendrick Lamar and SZA
“Rockstar” — Post Malone Featuring 21 Savage
“The Middle” — Zedd, Maren Morris and Grey

Album of the Year:
Invasion of Privacy — Cardi B
By the Way, I Forgive You — Brandi Carlile
Scorpion — Drake
H.E.R. — H.E.R.
Beerbongs and Bentleys — Post Malone
