GRL PWR: 2018 Grammy Nominees

Last week the Recording Academy released the 2018 Grammy Nominations and revealed news that was already public: it has been a big year for women in the music industry. SZA is the reigning Queen holding down nominations in five different categories. Other artists like Kesha, Lorde, and Lady Gaga are being recognized after releasing the most vulnerable music of their careers. It is empowering to see these women use their art and platform to take control of what they want to create and say.

I am a freshman music business major, like the majority of Belmont, from the Chicago land area. Like most people, I fell in love with Nashville's music, coffee shops, and obviously all the wall murals. I am a firm believer that one day I will marry Jim Halpert, but until that day, I will wait patiently and keep re-watching The Office. I believe that in an another life time, Amy Poehler and I would be the best of friends. I would hold out hope for this life time, but I am just waiting for her to respond to my emails.

Life is good--remember that.
