American Musical Supply in the News
The Academy recently restructured their categories, which essentially means that the Black Lodge Singers - the Susan Lucci of Native American music - may never win the accolade for Best Native American Music Album that's been evading them for the past 10 years.
Besides the Native American category, which will now be included in the much broader Best Regional Roots Music Album section, other less mainstream music awards like the Best Hawaiian Music Album will also be removed, according to MTV News.
The restructuring will eliminate gender-specific awards as well, so rather than Britney getting the Best Pop Solo Performance by a Female for her heavenly auto-tuned vocals - or the Biebs receiving the male counterpart - they can both duke it out for the Best Pop Solo Performance category instead, the news source adds.
The Best Rock Metal Performance and the Best Hard Rock trophy is also being consolidated into one prize, meaning Metallica will now be battling it out with the likes of the amazing Nickelback.
Of course, none of this has any effect on music lovers being able to play their own music - look for an American Musical Supply Coupon Code, an ActiveMusician Promo Code or a Musician's Hut Promotion Code to save on your favorite supplies.
