Artist reactions “Grammy’s Greatest Stories: A 60th Anniversary Special” were exciting .”To be asked by Paul McCartney to come up and jam was like a life-affirming moment for me,” says Dave Grohlactions.

“Everybody I’ve performed with on the Grammy’s is brilliant and I’ve learned a lot from them, and I’ve enjoyed the experience so much. What I love about the Grammy’s is seeing people, the true artists come on … the people who last the test of time, and they always give me goosebumps,” says Elton John.

Blake Shelton reminisced on performing with Glen Campbell at the 54th Grammy Awards in 2012 and shared his gratitude. “I have never felt more honored, proud, and nervous, and a sense of unexpected accomplishment. My first moment on that stage was with one of the greatest legends—not in country music—of the entertainment industry, period!”
