GREENSBORO, N.C. — Folk musician Rhiannon Giddens, a Greensboro-native, earned yet another Grammy nomination ahead of the 2020 Grammy Awards, according to a Wednesday announcement.

The Carolina Chocolate Drops went on to be nominated for Best Folk Album in 2012 with “Leaving Eden.”

In 2015, she was nominated for Best Folk Album for her first studio album, “Tomorrow Is My Turn,” and again in 2016 with “Factory Girl.”

She was also nominated for Best American Roots Performance for the song “Factory Girl” in 2016.
