Grammy Nominations Were Announced Yesterday!

Grammy nominations were announced yesterday and there are a few Johnny Mercer connections!

Alums from The Johnny Mercer Songwriters Project at Northwestern University, Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, are continuing to have a good year. They have been nominated for Grammys in two categories: Dear Evan Hansen for Best Musical Theater Album and “City of Stars” for Best Song Written for Visual Media. Congratulations to them both!

Also, two Grammy nominations in the Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album category include several Johnny Mercer songs. Bob Dylan’s Triplicate album includes three Johnny Mercer songs – “P.S. I Love You”, “Day In, Day Out” and “When the World Was Young” and Tony Bennett’s Celebrates 90 includes his rendition of “Autumn Leaves”.
