SAM SMITH ON THE PATH TO MAKING GRAMMY HISTORY -- TWICE!!
The multi-platinum crooner has received nominations for 3 out of the 4 "Big" categories. If he gets an Album of the Year Nomination (my money says he will), then he will become only the second maile artist to ever get noms in all 4 of these categories in the same year. The first time a male artist did this was Christopher Cross and "Sailing" in 1980 - he ended up sweeping all 4 categories (and then dying a quick career death). If Smith wins any of the 4, he will be the first openly gay artist to win one of the 4 Biggies. Proud indeed!!
