Through the night and next day we received so many nice messages and congratulations from friends and family everywhere. It made me realize that the GRAMMYs is an award that not only musicians and the music industry recognize, but people everywhere! We can’t wait to attend the event on Jan. 26 — it’s a real honor and humbling experience for us all to be nominated and recognized among so many of our talented peers.

Dream Theater is a Grammy nominee for Best Metal Performance for The Enemy Inside. Petrucci:

Wow! Could this really be happening? That was my first thought when I heard the news that Dream Theater had just been nominated for our first GRAMMY. It still makes me smile every time I think about it and the reality of receiving such an honor still hasn’t set in.

Alabama Shakes is a Grammy nominee for Best Rock Performance for Always Alright.

I feel like we’ve progressed in growing as songwriters, and while they’re different in that respect, it’s still not unbelievable that it’s the same band. It still sounds like Alabama Shakes, just experimenting with other sounds.

Pretty Lights is a Grammy nominee for Best Dance/Electronica Album for A Color Map Of The Sun.

I think the most exciting aspect of my Grammy nomination is that there’s some sort of paradigm shift happening where electronic music has become a bigger genre of music that doesn’t necessarily describe anything more specific than “music made with a computer,” and the category of “best electronic album” is representing the breadth of the genre well. Kaskade is more a traditional idea of electronic music, while Disclosure has the newer singer-songwriter appeal, and Daft Punk of course is a classic powerhouse act, and then there’s me who is kind of far left old soul and funk beats.

James is the Grammy nominee for Best Pop Instrumental Album for The Beat.

I was recording for fun, experimenting with this hybrid R&B and Latin sound, two genres I love. So my playing on this album has a different energy. I think it’s one of the best records I’ve ever done.
