‘Best Remixed Recording’ Can Be a Career-Making Grammy Award

Pity not the plight of the remix producer: Despite the fact that most producers hired to rework popular songs don’t share in publishing revenue on compositions they re-imagine, in the Spotify era, a remixed version of a song can sometimes eclipse the original recording, generating millions on the master side. Case in point? Producer Carlos […]

Grammy Awards 2017: Katy Perry, Chrissy Teigen and Lady Gaga Bring the Heat in These After Party Looks

Every year, the Grammy Awards are known to be the most unexpected and over the top red carpet of the season. And it makes perfect sense considering all of the outlandish, theatrical things these nominees wear on a regular basis as part of their day job being some of the biggest pop stars in the world. After all, where else can you get everything from Oscar-worthy ball gowns, to a man painted entirely gold, and even a woman who appears to have fashioned a dress out of a #MAGA throw blanket. But if you thought the looks on the red carpet were awe-inspiring, just wait until you see what A-listers like Katy Perry, Chrissy Teigen, and Lady Gaga chose to wear out to celebrate this big night in music.

Katy Perry started off the night debuting a brand new look, a full head of bleach blonde hair, which she paired with a Tom Ford dress that was a far cry from her usual moving, light-up, technicolor gowns. Instead, the pop star went from something very understated with a long sleeve champagne colored column dress that was sequins on top and feathers on bottom. After a brief costume change into a white pantsuit for the very political performance of her new single “Chained to the Rhythm,” Perry attended the after party circuit wearing an equally simple, yet sexy, black jumpsuit with a deep scoop neck, faux double breasted blazer buttons, and thigh-high slits up the legs to give an extra flash of skin.

Chrissy Teigen also attended the ceremony with her husband John Legend wearing an illusion dress with tons ornate crystallized embroidery, tons of straps, and tons of skin-exposing cutouts, all ending in a fringe-laden skirt. To celebrate with all the winners from last night at the GQ party, the Sports Illustrated model changed into something a little more covered-up and casual, wearing a burnt orange Paule Ka long sleeve satin wrap dress, cinched at the waist with a tan and gold belt.

Lady Gaga, on the other hand, we pure rock and roll from start to finish. The pop star was clearly taking her role performing with Metallica deadly seriously, beginning with the moment she arrived on the red carpet with freshly dyed pastel pink hair, pitch black sunglasses, a custom, under-boob baring crop top with spiky sleeves, chain-covered booty shorts, and thigh-high boots with some serious heels. For her performance with the iconic heavy metal band Gaga changed into one of their vintage rock tees and a ripped-up fishnet bodysuit, before making her final change of the evening, channeling Blondie in even more asymmetrical black leather with a glittery silver and blue lightening bolt across the side.

A Guide To Sturgill Simpson, The Grammy Nominee Up Against Beyoncé And Adele

Sturgill Simpson may not be a household name, but the 38-year-old singer will compete Sunday in the coveted Album of the Year category at the Grammy Awards ― against many of the world’s biggest stars.

Simpson’s third solo studio effort, “A Sailor’s Guide to Earth,” is up against mainstream heavy-hitters: Beyoncé’s “Lemonade,” Adele’s “25,” Justin Bieber’s “Purpose” and Drake’s “Views.”

Even Simpson himself was surprised when the nominations came out in December, telling the Los Angeles Times, “In terms of what happened today, this never even crossed my mind. When we came off the road at Thanksgiving, I really thought, ‘Well, that’s it for this one. We’ve done everything,’ and I started thinking about what to do for the next record. This has all been slightly surreal to say the least.”

Surreal, indeed.

Read on for more about the man behind “A Sailor’s Guide to Earth.”

This isn’t Simpson’s first rodeo. 

His sophomore album, 2014’s “Metamodern Sounds in Country Music,” received a Grammy nomination for Best Americana Album. It also became a critics’ darling, ranking on Rolling Stone’s 50 Best Albums of 2014 list. 

Before going solo, Simpson played in a bluegrass band called Sunday Valley. The group released an EP in 2004 and made an appearance at the Pickathon Festival in Portland, Oregon. But they didn’t get too far, Simpson says. “We couldn’t travel because the bass player had a great gig with the fire department,” he told Rolling Stone.

Simpson comes from a family of coal miners. 

Born in Jackson, Kentucky, Simpson grew up listening to music. His grandmother had 45s by Otis Redding and Sam and Dave, and his older cousin introduced him to the likes of Cream and Jimi Hendrix. 

“I was the first male in my mother’s family not to work the mines,” he told Rolling Stone. “Mom was a secretary, Dad was a state cop. We lived in a prefab house just off the highway. When I was in second grade, we moved to Versailles, just outside Lexington.”

He has a wide range of musical influences.

David Bowie, Nirvana, Sly and the Family Stone, Bill Withers, Marvin Gaye, Pink Floyd, George Harrison, Curtis Mayfield and T Rex all inspired Simpson’s latest album. You can add Walt Disney to that list, too. “Those old-school Disney movies with the symphonies and strings are great!” he told American Songwriter. It’s no wonder. Simpson says he’s been watching old Disney movies with his son, who was born in June 2014.

He’s a former U.S. Navy sailor.

The Kentucky-born singer made an on-the-spot decision to enlist in the Navy. 

“I walked in, looked around, and the Navy recruiter was a really hot brunette, so I signed up with her,” Simpson told Garden and Gun.  

Simpson spent time doing service in Japan and Southeast Asia. But the three-year stint eventually came to an end.

“I wasn’t very good at taking orders,” he admitted.  

Simpson’s wife encouraged him to get serious about music.

Music faded into the background, when in 2006, Simpson decided to take a job working at a Salt Lake City railroad freight-shipping yard for the Union Pacific Railroad. After four years, his girlfriend (now wife) urged Simpson to pick up the guitar again. 

“My wife was a big catalyst for the move to Nashville. I had started really seriously writing for the first time in years and playing at home a bit,” he told Fader. “She said ‘You don’t exactly suck at this. You should know that you tried before you wake up at 40 and I’m stuck with your ass all miserable.’”

It’s a good thing Simpson gave music another go. No longer miserable, Simpson has carved out a musical career for himself. He’s also up for Best Country Album on Sunday ― and will perform on the Grammys stage, possibly inching closer to becoming a household name.
