The event will also salute the year-round work of the Producers & Engineers and Songwriters & Composers Wings and shine a light on the people working behind the scenes to create the year's best musical works – including this year's Songwriter Of The Year nominees.
A Celebration of Craft will take place just days before the Recording Academy will honor the Producer Of The Year, Non-Classical and Songwriter Of The Year, Non-Classical Categories in the General Field of the GRAMMY Awards® for the first time at the 66th Annual GRAMMY Awards. The Recording Academy announced these additions in June 2023 after they were voted on and passed by the Recording Academy's Board of Trustees in May 2023; relocating these Categories allows all GRAMMY voters to participate in the voting process for these non-genre-specific Categories and recognize excellence in the important fields of producing and songwriting.
