Boygenius Sweeps Early Grammy Awards, Reflecting Women Dominance In Nominations

During the pre-show ceremony, boygenius picked up a trio of Grammys for the Best Rock Performance and Best Rock Song (“Not Strong Enough”) and Best Alternative Music Album for The Record.

The group, composed of singer/songwriters Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers, and Lucy Dacus, has received six nominations this year, including nods for Record of The Year and Album of The Year.

Brandy Clark secured her first win, together with Brandi Carlile, after 17 past nominations in the Best Americana Performance category for the song “Dear Insecurity.” Clark expressed gratitude, saying, “It’s a journey home for me, and a journey home to make the record with Brandi since we’re both from the Pacific Northwest.”

Other early winners include Victoria Monet, who won Best R&B Album for Jaguar II, Alison Russell, who won Best American Roots Performance for her song “Eve Was Black,” and Susan Carol, who won Best Traditional R&B Performance for “Good Morning.”

The sister duo of multi-instrumentalists Rebecca and Megan Lovell, known as Larkin Poe, won their first Grammy for Best Contemporary Blues Album for Blood Harmony. Rebecca Lovell emphasized the role of recognition in advancing women in the genre, stating, “Being able to write songs from our perspective will weave our stories into the greater story of American music.”

Women dominate the nominations in several major categories this year, with SZA leading the pack with nine nominations. Other prolific female artists with multiple nominations include Monet, Bridgers, Taylor Swift, Billie Eilish, Olivia Rodrigo, Miley Cyrus, and Brandy Clark.
