LEWIS CAPALDI RECEIVES FIRST GRAMMY AWARD NOMINATION AFTER US BREAKTHROUGH
The ceremony takes place in January 2020
Lewis Capaldi has received his first Grammy nomination in a year dominated by rising stars Lizzo, Billie Eilish and Lil Nas X.
The Scottish music star received a songwriting nod for his breakthrough hit Someone You Loved, which has topped the charts in both the UK and the US, along with co-writers Tom Barnes, Pete Kelleher, Benjamin Kohn and Sam Roman.
Capaldi's song was a sleeper hit and finally reached number one last month after 24 weeks, making him the first Scottish artist to achieve the US chart feat in nearly 40 years.
The 23-year-old - who jokingly refers to himself as "America's sweetheart" - will compete with Always Remember Us This Way from A Star Is Born, Bad Guy by Billie Eilish, Bring My Flowers Now by Tanya Tucker, Hard Place by HER, Lover by Taylor Swift, and Truth Hurts by Lizzo in the song of the year category at the US awards ceremony, which will take place in January.
Another British artist to receive a nod is Ed Sheeran, whose latest album No.6 Collaborations Project is up for best pop vocal album.Published: by Radio NewsHub
