Before she was headlining her own shows, Kacey Musgraves toured with everyone from Lady Antebellum to Katy Perry, but one of her most memorable shows took place in Atlanta a few years ago, when she shared the stage with one of her songwriting idols, John Prine. This collectible poster comes from Oh Boy Records, the independent American record label Prine founded in 1981. Musgraves and Prine will hopefully have another chance to perform together this coming year — they’re both booked to play at Bonnaroo this June. Purchase: poster, $20.00 on Amazon.com / Bonnaroo tickets on Stubhub.com.

4. Childish Gambino Fan Art Notebook and Coloring Book

Childish Gambino (a.k.a. Donald Glover) got people talking this past year with the surprise release — and success — of “This Is America” (stream here). The song soared straight to No. 1 and is nominated for four Grammys, including both song and record of the year. Glover’s artistic vision and powerful connection to hip-hop culture is on full display in these two fan-driven pieces: a graffiti-inspired lined notebook (purchase, $14.99 on Society6.com) and this adult coloring book (purchase, $10.00 on Amazon.com).

5. Cardi B Imperial Throne iPhone Skin

6. Lady Gaga “A Hundred People” Print

“There can be 100 people in the room, and 99 don’t believe in you, and you just need one to believe in you, and that was Bradley Cooper.” That oft-repeated quote from Lady Gaga has become a meme-able moment during the singer and actress’ promo tour for “A Star Is Born,” and she was even roasted for it by hosts Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh during their monologue at the Golden Globes last weekend. The quote has now landed on a piece of fan merch on the popular pop culture site, Redbubble. This “A Hundred People in the Room” print is printed on lightly textured 100% cotton paper and available in three, ready-to-display sizes. Purchase: $20.84+ on Redbubble.com.

Lady Gaga has five Grammy nods for her song “Shallow” off the “A Star Is Born” soundtrack (stream here). She also nabbed a Best Pop Solo Performance nomination for her song, “Joanne.”

7. Post Malone Van Gogh Art Print

It’s been a big year for Post Malone, who’s up for four Grammys, including an Album of the Year nod for “Beerbongs & Bentleys” (stream here and get the limited-edition yellow vinyl here). It’s also been a big year for Post Malone merch, with the singer and rapper dropping a collaboration with Crocs (no, really) that sold out in minutes, along with a T-shirt release at Hot Topic (shop here).

For something even more out there, check out this limited-edition print from “In With the Old,” an art collective that creates modern spins on classic artwork. This high-quality glossy print is available in four sizes and comes unframed. Purchase: $10.00+ on Amazon.com.

8. Grammy Slumber Party Package at Hotel Indigo


If you’re looking for a unique way to watch and celebrate the Grammys this year, the Hotel Indigo in downtown Los Angeles is offering a Grammy-inspired all-inclusive karaoke slumber party in the hotel’s luxurious presidential suite. The package includes a one-night stay in the 1400 sq. ft., three-bay suite, which features art deco styling, a full kitchen and bar, and panoramic views of the Hollywood sign and the downtown LA skyline. Hotel Indigo is also steps from the Staples Center, where this year’s Grammy ceremony is taking place.

Guests who book the Grammys package will get a personal butler to help convert the living room into their own private karaoke bar, complete with hours of music selections and treats and snacks for up to 10 people. The package is priced at $1,959 (the year of the first-ever Grammy show).
