Six-time Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter, performer, producer, and New York Times Best Selling author Brandi Carlile is nominated for five awards at the 64th Annual GRAMMY Awards: The live awards ceremony will be broadcast Monday, January 31, 2021.

Carlile was nominated for Record of the Year ("Right On Time"), Song of the Year ("Right On Time" and "A Beautiful Noise" performed by Carlile and Alicia Keys), Best Pop Solo Performance ("Right On Time") and Best American Roots Performance ("Same Devil" with Brandy Clark). 


Grammy Awards: Chris Stapleton Nominated for Three Grammys

The nominations add to yet another monumental year for Carlile, who released her acclaimed #1 new album, In These Silent Days, earlier this fall. In the weeks following, Carlile made her debut as the musical guest on NBC's "Saturday Night Live" with host Jason Sudeikis performing "Broken Horses" and "Right On Time, returned to "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" to debut "You And Me On The Rock" and debuted "This Time Tomorrow" on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert." Most recently, Carlile performed Mitchell's legendary album Blue in its entirety at Carnegie Hall. Of the sold-out performance, Billboard proclaims, "an extraordinary concert…who better to take on this homage but Carlile, who has taken up Mitchell's still brightly burning torch, as one of the finest songwriters and singers of this era." 

Released on Low Country Sound/Elektra Records, In These Silent Days debuted at #1 on Billboard's Americana/Folk Albums chart, Top Rock Albums chart and Tastemaker Albums chart (stream/purchase here).


Grammy Awards: Brandy Clark Nominated for Song of The Year and Best American Roots Performance

Produced by Dave Cobband Shooter Jennings, the record was inspired by the mining of Carlile's own history while writing this year's #1 New York Times Best Selling memoir, Broken Horses (Crown), and conceived of while she was quarantined at home with longtime collaborators and bandmates Tim and Phil Hanseroth. The ten songs chronicle acceptance, faith, loss and love and channel icons like David Bowie, Freddie Mercury, Elton John and Joni Mitchell—the latter two who, by some sort of cosmic alignment of the stars, have turned out to be close friends in addition to being her biggest heroes and inspirations. 

In celebration of the new music, Carlile will perform a series of landmark shows next year as part of her newly confirmed "Beyond These Silent Days Tour" including Washington's Gorge Amphitheatre on June 11, Los Angeles' The Greek Theatre on June 24 and 25, Nashville's Ascend Amphitheatre on July 8 and 9, St. Paul's Xcel Energy Center on July 30, Chicago's Huntington Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island on August 6, D.C.'s Merriweather Post Pavilion on August 18, Colorado's Red Rocks Amphitheatre on September 9 and 10, Boston's TD Garden on October 21 and New York's Madison Square Garden on October 22. Special guests featured on the tour include (in alphabetical order): Allison Russell, Ani DiFranco, Brittany Howard, Celisse, Indigo Girls, Lake Street Dive, Lucius and Sarah McLachlan.

Grammy Awards: Billy Strings Nominated for Best Bluegrass Album and Best American Roots Performance

In These Silent Days follows Carlile's 2018 breakthrough GRAMMY Award-winning album, By The Way, I Forgive You, which Rolling Stone declared, "…an Adele-meets Joni Mitchell tour de force." In the years since—in addition tocollaborative projects with Elton John, The Highwomen, Tanya Tucker, Soundgarden, Alicia Keys, Dolly Parton, Barry Gibb, Leslie Jordan, Brandy Clark and more—she has earned six Grammy Awards recognizing her work as a performer, songwriter and producer, was awarded Billboard's Women In Music "Trailblazer Award," CMT's Next Women of Country "Impact Award" and received multiple recognitions from the Americana Music Association Honors & Awards including 2021's Artist of the Year, 2020's Album of the Year (Highwomen), Group of the Year (The Highwomen) and Song of the Year ("Crowded Table") and 2019's Artist of the Year. Moreover, the audiobook version of Carlile's memoir was recently highlighted as one of Libro.fm's top 10 bestselling audiobooks of 2021. 

In addition to their work as a band, Carlile and the Hanseroth twins remain committed to social activism and advocacy. Together they are founders of the Looking Out Foundation, which amplifies the impact of music by empowering those without a voice with varied initiatives including campaigns focused on Children in Conflict/War Child, The IF Project, Fund Racial Justice and more. To date, they have raised over $2 million for grassroots causes.
