New York, NY (Top40 Charts) The Recording Academy and creative partner TBWAChiatDay LA have teamed up once again, this time to promote the milestone 60th Annual GRAMMY Awards with a dynamic campaign titled, "Long Live Music," launching today. The 60th Annual GRAMMY Awards will be held on Sunday, Jan. 28, 2018, and for the first time in 15 years, will be hosted live from New York City's Madison Square Garden. The show will be broadcast live on the CBS Television Network at 7:30 p.m. ET.

"Long Live Music" celebrates the iconic artists and those extraordinary musical moments that have not only left an indelible mark on popular culture, but also helped to define music's enduring legacy.

The campaign features two television films and an out-of-home campaign that together highlight musicians whose legacies will live on for generations. The first film, "Critics," debuts today during the CBS special "GRAMMYs® Greatest Stories: A 60th Anniversary Special," and focuses on artists who have risen above mainstream criticism to become true icons. The second film, "They Said," celebrates 60 years of once-in-a-lifetime GRAMMY® performances, defying critics who simply didn't understand how their music would ripple through our collective consciousness. And finally, a series of out-of-home executions punctuate the campaign, featuring some of music's biggest iconic stars, including Jay-Z, Keith Urban, and Lady Gaga.

"'Long Live Music' is an anthem, representing the idea that despite celebrating six decades of some of the greatest music ever recorded and performed, we are just getting started," said Evan Greene, Chief Marketing Officer of the Recording Academy. "This year's campaign isn't simply about an award show. It is about honoring music's ability to shape culture, and celebrating how music unites and inspires fans around the world and across generations."

"This year is a milestone for music's biggest stage and we knew it needed to be more than a celebration of today, but a celebration of where we've been and what is to come," said TBWAChiatDay LA Chief Creative Officer Renato Fernandez. "Over the years we've seen that music can change, artists can evolve, but the root of what people love about music and the feeling it evokes in all of us never dies, and that incredible feeling is what this campaign aspires to honor."
