Grammy® Awards eliminates Southern Gospel category
The National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (NARAS), organizer of the Grammy® Awards, cut their awards categories from 109 to 78 today. One of the categories eliminated was “Best Southern, Country or Bluegrass Gospel Album.”
Albums which would previously have been nominated in that category will now be eligible to be nominated under a broader general Christian/Gospel category.
The NARAS’s full list of changes is here.
