If ‘Old Town Road’ Wins a Grammy, Will Nine Inch Nails Share the Award?1/25/2020

Although ordinarily awarded to the artist along with the producer, recording and mastering engineers and/or mixers, according to the Recording Academy, “Writers-producers of sampled material are not eligible to be considered nominees nor Grammy winners, but if the record wins, their contributions would be acknowledged with certificates.”

I know this topic has been widely discussed. … Of course, I’d like to see the writers of the sampled works receive Grammys because their contributions are critical in many of these cases. It just makes a lot of sense.”
