Homes from 2016 Grammy Nominee Hometowns

These Grammy nominated artists come from hometowns with some extremely beautiful homes in them. Here’s a look at some of our favorites.

From Kendrick Lamar and the Weeknd, on over to Taylor Swift and the Alabama Shakes – nearly every musician carries their hometown with them wherever their career and travels take them. The sights, sounds and smells of home unconsciously seep into each bar of music and every pitch perfect melody. And that’s because where we’re from never leaves us.

In honor of the 58th annual Grammy Awards and the joy music brings into our lives, let’s take a look at homes from some Grammy nominated artists’ hometowns.

Bruno Mars – Honolulu, Hawaii

Honolulu, Hawaii - $22,000,000Listed by- Coldwell Banker Pacific Properties


Nominated for 4 awards, including “Record of the Year”, Bruno Mars brought the funk to millions in 2015 with the year’s most catchy song. While his world-wide tour took him around the world, we know Bruno has a special affinity for his hometown of Honolulu. When he’s not out giving awesome performances with his band, we’re sure he wouldn’t mind catching some r&r at this modern 8 bedroom beach estate.

Basically, you haven’t been to paradise if you haven’t been to Hawaii.” – Bruno Mars

Death Cab for Cutie – Bellinham, Washington

It’s hard to believe, but Death Cab for Cutie released their 8th studio album in 2015, earning them an 8th Grammy nomination. They’ve been away from home performing to sold out venues for over 18 years now, but their heart is still in Bellingham. If they were in the market for a quiet home to write at, this spectacular estate overlooking the San Juan Islands would be a must see!

There’s really a sense of tranquility up in Bellingham. It’s a nice place for a lot of introspection.”

Kanye West – Chicago, Illinois

Kanye just released his album a few days ago, but his teaser track from 2015 earned him another Grammy nomination for his collaboration with Paul McCartney. This remarkable 6,500 square foot home just a block north of Lincoln Park packs the pizzaz that the artistically astute Kanye would certainly enjoy. The $3.4 million dollar home is right in the heart of the town he loves so much, but it’s ultra private and stylish as well.

I’m coming home again.
Do you think about me now and then?
Do you think about me now and then?
Cause I’m coming home again
Coming home again.

Bob Dylan – Duluth, Minnesota

Bob Dylan moved to New York City in the early 60s to pursue his passion, but Minnesota is where he called home for the first 20 or so years of his life. This all-brick colonial in Bob’s hometown oozes a kind of sophistication seldom seen in newer constructions. This $850,000 dollar home has been tastefully restored, but it still exudes a reverence for the early 20th century from whence it came.

“I don’t like it in the wind
Wanna go back home again.”

I Was Young When I Left Home – Bob Dylan


We love all four of these fabulous homes! Which is your favorite?

Be sure to tune in to the 58th Annual Grammy Awards tonight at 8pm EST to see if Bob, Kanye, Bruno and Death Cab for Cutie take some hardware back to their own homes.
