The Grammy Awards have been going on since 1959, which means artists with long-lived careers have had ample opportunities to rake in the wins and nominations.
The nominations for the 2017 Grammys were just released, so it got us wondering–how many nominations have some of these artists received? Just this year alone Beyonce got nine nominations, and this certainly isn’t her “first rodeo.” Is it possible that there are a bunch of musicians out there with nominations in the double digits?
Yes. Yes, there are. A surprising amount of them, actually, with an astonishing amount of nominations. Seriously, you won’t believe how many nominations can be received by a single person. Here are the artists with the most Grammy nominations ever:
#10. Dolly Parton (tie): 47
Dolly Parton is quite possibly one of the biggest country icons around and the “Jolene” singer still tours to this day.
