“Thank you to all at The Recording Academy and everyone who has supported this collaboration. Thanks also to Sub Pop Records, City Slang, [record producer] Matt Ross-Spang and everyone involved in the making of this record.”

Calexico are in the running for two awards for their collaboration with Iron & Wine: Best Americana Album for Years To Burn and Best American Roots Performance for “Father Mountain.”

Quite a distinction. Calexico, along with Iron & Wine, are shining bright in the “Midnight Sun.”

The 2020 Grammy's will be presented on Sunday, Jan. 26. CBS will broadcast the ceremony live.
