Last night The Recording Academy announced nominations for the 56th Annual GRAMMY Awards and Sarah Jarosz made the list…twice. While she trails Jay Z with nine nominations and Justin Timberlake with seven, Jarosz’s album Build Me Up From Bones is up for Best Folk Album and the album’s title track is up for Best American Roots Song.

Jarosz is up against strong old-timers like Steve Earle, Tim O’Brien & Darrell Scott, Edie Brickell & Steve Martin and Allen Toussaint for Best Song. For best album, she will battle Guy Clarke, Milk Carton Kids and The Greencards.

Other gcb favorites on the list include Della Mae and Del McCoury Band for Best Bluegrass Album. Emmylou Harris & Rodney Crowell, Steve Martin & Edie Brickell, Buddy Miller & Jim Lauderdale, Mavis Staples and Allen Toussaint are up for Best Americana Album.

The 56th Annual GRAMMY Awards will be held on “GRAMMY Sunday,” Jan. 26, 2014, at STAPLES Center in Los Angeles and once again will be broadcast live on CBS from 8 – 11:30 p.m. (ET/PT).
