- Sting and Shaggy 's collaboration, 44/876, is up for Best Reggae Album .
- Boz Scaggs is nominated for Best Contemporary Blues Album for Out of the Blues .
- The Eric Clapton documentary, Life in 12 Bars , is up for Best Music Film .
A couple of box sets -- Guns n' Roses ' Appetite for Destruction (Locked n' Loaded Box) and The Grateful Dead 's Pacific Northwest '73-74': The Complete Recordings -- are up for Best Boxed or Special Limited Edition Package .
The Grammy Awards air live on CBS at 8 pm ET Sunday.
