In the Best Rock Song category, McCartney was nominated along with Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselle and Pat Smear for “Cut Me Some Slack” from the soundtrack of the documentary “Sound City – Real to Reel.” Also nominated in that category are Gary Clark Jr.'s “Ain't Messin Round,” The Rolling Stones' “Doom and Gloom,” “God Is Dead” by Black Sabbath and “Panic Station” by Muse.

The deluxe reissue of “Wings Over America” was nominated as Best Boxed Or Special Limited Editon Package along with The Rolling Stones' “The Brussels Affair,” Mayer Hawthorne's “How Do You Do” limited edition box set, Mumford & Son “The Road to Red Rocks” Special Edition and “The Smith Tapes.”

“Live Kisses,” the live-in-the-studio performance of songs from his “Kisses on the Bottom” album, was nominated twice. The first nomination was for Best Surround Sound album against “Sailing The Seas of Cheese (Deluxe Edition)” by Primus, “Signature Sound Opus One,” “Sixteen Sunsets” by Jane Ira Bloom and “Sprung Rhythm” by Richard Scerbo & Inscape.

“Live Kisses” was also nominated for Best Music Film along with Coldplay's “Live 2012,” Green Day's “¡Cuatro!,” “I'm In, I'm Out and I'm Gone: The Making of Get Up!” by Ben Harper With Charlie Musselwhite and “The Road to Red Rocks” by Mumford & Sons.

You could even add a fifth nomination. “Sound City,” on which McCartney was featured, was also nominated for Best Compilation Soundtrack For Visual Media.

Recordings had to be released between Oct. 1, 2012 and Sept. 30, 2013 to be nominated, which meant McCartney's recently released “NEW” wasn't eligible since it came out in mid-October.

The 56th Annual Grammy Awards will be held on Jan. 26, 2014, at Staples Center in Los Angeles. They will be broadcast live to the East Coast and on three-hour tape delay to the West Coast in high-definition TV and 5.1 surround sound on CBS from 8 – 11:30 p.m. (ET/PT).
