Sheryl Crow Calls Out Grammy Awards For Not Nominating Her Final Studio Album ‘Threads’
Sheryl Crow fans were shocked that the Grammy Award winner was not nominated for the 2020 Grammy Awards, especially given that her latest release, Threads, will be her final studio album. Crow herself didn’t hesitate to address the snub when she took to Twitter on Thursday night.
Following the nomination announcements, Crow tweeted, “Hey @RecordingAcad didya even read my album notes? Greatest story ever about a girl listening to her heroes’ records & dreaming of going off into the world to play music… then making a record with all of them, for cryin out loud! #grammysforoldpeople.” The tweet has since been deleted, but fans and even other artists reached out to show support.
Singer Brandi Carlile, who responded to Crow’s post, was nominated three times this year. She shared her support, writing, “You made an absolutely once in a lifetime album and I love you.” Carlile, a close friend of Crow’s, appeared on Threads for a duet.
It wouldn’t be the first time Crow has addressed issues with the Recording Academy, as she tweeted in 2018 about sexism in the awards. “I wish the #Grammys would return to female/male categories. Who will young girls be inspired by to pick up a guitar and rock when most every category is filled with men? I’m not sure it is about women needing to ‘step up’ (as said by the male in charge). #GrammysSoMale,” she wrote.
