Music: Grammys 2016 Winners

The winners have been announced! This has been a great year for music even the awards were a bit strange. I was puzzled by all the winners though I saw a good bit of it coming. I just wanted The Weeknd to win a big award this year but it was not to be.

Best Album of the Year
Taylor Swift won with her album 1989. I thought it was a decent album and Swift is the first woman to win this award twice. There is no doubt in my mind that Swift is a powerhouse in modern music. 

Record of the Year
As I predicted, the hopping tune by Mark Ronson featuring Bruno Mars "Uptown Funk" took home the award. Not much more I can say about this song. Everyone should listen to it.

Song of the Year
Ed Sheeran's "Thinking Out Loud" took home this award. A great song to dance and sing along too. I figured this song had a chance since it was nominated for both Record and Song. The Grammys were saving Taylor's award for album so skipped on "Blank Space"

Best New Artist

Meghan Trainor won the award, which was odd because she was nominated last year. Trainor has been around making her the obvious pick because she has had time to release several songs, but her album must have just come out this year. 

The Grammys are done for this year. There was a lot of great music this year and I am a sucker for these award shows. It is always nice to listen to all of the great songs produced by talented musicians. I am looking forward to another great year of music!
