Annual Grammys CD a good sampler of nominees

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)

This is a little PR-ish, but I've always found these annual CD releases to be helpful for those with a genuine interest in the Grammys. Today, the "2008 Grammy Nominees" CD was released — a decent round-up of tracks and artists nominated for this year's prizes.

Don't you wish the Academy would do this for the Oscars? A DVD compilation of the year's nominated films — what a box-office booster that would be!

This is the 14th edition in the best-selling CD series. A portion of the sales will benefit the MusiCares Foundation and the Grammy Foundation.

This year's disc features, once again, two Chicago-native artists: the omnipresent Kanye West and award-show faves the Plain White T's.

Here's the tracklist for the "2008 Grammy Nominees" CD, and the award(s) the song is nominated for:
