RoxBox gets nominated for Grammis award

STOCKHOLM - Roxette's 20th anniversary release, "The RoxBox/Roxette 86-06", has been nominated for a Grammis award in the open category. Other nominees in the category include Peter Jöback and Evert Taube's compilations, "En kärlekshistoria," a collection of songs from Swedish indie records (including "At School" by Brainpool) and "Bra dagar," a homage to folk singer Totta Näslund who died last year.

According to the Grammis rules, albums containing previously released material can only be nominated in the open category. At least 50% of the material on the album must be Swedish to be able to take part.

The winners will be announced on January 30, 2007 at Hovet in Stockholm. The gala will be broadcast "live" on TV4.
