Nom recount has Grammys singing different total tune

Composer-producer David Foster’s Grammy nominations jumped from five to seven after errors on the official list were corrected, the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences confirmed Wednesday.

The revision puts Foster ahead of Sting, who has six nods, as the most-nominated artist, said NARAS rep Maureen O’Connor and Atlantic Records publicist Laura Gold.

Foster is under contract with Atlantic.

“You know, Sting is the one guy I’d really like to work with. Maybe this will help, or, maybe not,” Foster said Wednesday. “I can’t imagine we wouldn’t win this year, but there’s a lot of competition.”

Foster’s name was inadvertently left off of the nomination for “When I Fall in Love,” from the “Sleepless in Seattle” soundtrack, Gold said. Foster and Jeremy Lubbock were nominated for the song in the category of best instrumental arrangement with accompanying vocals.

A miscount deprived Foster of credit for another nod in the same category. That was his arrangement of the Barbra Streisand single “Some Enchanted Evening.”

Foster’s other nominations included record of the year and album of the year for Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You” from “The Bodyguard” and “The Bodyguard” soundtrack album.
