On Tuesday morning, the nominees for the 59th Grammy Awards were announced. Out of all the nominations, the category World Cafe is watching most closely is Best Alternative Music Album; those nominees are David Bowie, Bon Iver, PJ Harvey, Iggy Pop and Radiohead.

But we have favorites nominated in many other categories, too. Among them are Adele, Anderson .Paak, Sturgill Simpson, The Record Company, Snarky Puppy, Alabama Shakes, William Bell, Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, The Avett Brothers and more.
