Hear why Black Pumas is nominated for a GRAMMY

November 21, 2019

HEADLINE: Black Pumas are nominated for a GRAMMY Award for Best New Artist and for damn good reason. Count them as one of the many in a long list of artists XRT listeners have gotten to know from their very start.  Full stop. See Black Pumas in a very special XRT show at House of Blues on January 25, 2020.  Check out the entire playlist below and past shows' playlists here.

Support the artists you hear on the radio station AND small businesses - buy the artists’ music from a local, independent, or family-owned music store.  Let me know what you find the next time you go crate diving! My handle on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter is RyanArnoldRocks.
