Irish singer Hozier is among the early Grammy nominees in the top categories announced by the Recording Academy on Friday. He is nominated in the Song of the Year category for his hit song 'Take Me To Church'.
His contenders include British soul-pop artist Sam Smith, pop star Taylor Swift, and Sia for the song 'Chandelier'.
The Wicklow native first came to the prominence a year ago with 'Take Me To Church', his smash-hit single whose video went viral. He has since made appearances on The David Letterman Show and most recently at the Victoria's Secret fashion show.
