Chris Cornell receives posthumous Grammy Award nomination

Chris Cornell has received a posthumous nomination for the 2020 Grammy Awards.

The team that put together the late Soundgarden rocker’s self-tilted 2018 compilation has been recognized in the Best Recording Package category, highlighting the work of Barry Ament, Jeff Ament, Jeff Fura and Joe Spix; the project presents material from Cornell’s extensive career as a solo artist and work with Soundgarden, Temple Of The Dog and Audioslave.

The set will compete for honors alongside packages delivering the music of Voces Del Bullerengue (Anonimas & Resilientes”), The Muddy Basin Ramblers (“Hold That Tiger”), Bon Iver (“I, I”) and Intellexual (“Intellexual”).

“Thank you to The Recording Academy for honoring the life and legacy of Chris Cornell - he would be so proud!,” says Vicky Cornell. “Thank you to those who’s love helped make this such a special record and package. Special thanks to Jeff Ament and Ume - our children and I are so grateful to you for your passion and dedication. Huge thank you to all his fans - this was made for you!”

The 62nd Annual Grammy Awards will be broadcast live on the CBS Network from the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday, January 26, 2020.

Soundgarden are among the nominees under consideration for entry into the 2020 Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame; the inductees will be announced in December and the ceremony will take place in Cleveland, OH next spring.
