Six-time Grammy winner Jack White has been nominated in three categories in the 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards, including the evening’s highest honor, the Album of the Year.
In addition to Album of the Year, Blunderbuss is also nominated for Best Rock Album, while “Freedom at 21” has been nominated for Best Rock Song.
The three new Grammy nominations, in addition to White’s previous 15 nominations, bring his career total to 18. White has previously earned six Grammys for his work with the White Stripes and the Raconteurs. This is his second Album of the Year nomination, the first having been the White Stripes’ Elephant in 2003.
The 55th Annual Grammy Awards will be broadcast live on CBS at 8 pm ET/PT on February 10th, 2013.
The three new Grammy nominations round off an exceptional year for Jack White, beginning with the first U.S. #1 album of his distinguished career, as Blunderbuss debuted at the top of the charts in the U.S., UK, Canada and Switzerland. Blunderbuss was also supported by a rapturously received world tour featuring all-male backing band The Buzzards and all-female backing band The Peacocks. At press time, the album has just begun to tear up Best of 2012 lists, including being named MOJO’s #1 album of the year.
