The Recording Academy® will give credit where credit is due with Behind the Record, a social media initiative aimed to spotlight the many producers, engineers, songwriters, mixers, instrumentalists, and other creators who contribute to the music recording process.

Behind the Record will launch on Oct. 25 and ignite a cultural conversation by inviting artists across all music genres to recognize their collaborators’ incredible behind-the-scenes work on the tracks, records, and albums loved by music fans across the globe. A campaign video featuring artists’ intimate recording session photos and compelling GRAMMY acceptance speeches that acknowledge professionals who contributed to the music creation process can be viewed here.

 

“It’s our responsibility, as a service organization, to serve our membership community of creative professionals and to ensure we celebrate and recognize all the incredibly talented musicians and creators who are making the music we love,” said Deborah Dugan, President/CEO of the Recording Academy. “Credits have been a casualty of the digital age, for all that we gained with streaming we lost in the opportunity for recognition and even discovery. Behind the Record champions all professional music creators and aims to connect with artist fan bases in order to give recognition to those who work tirelessly on these recordings.”

Artists can participate in Behind the Record by:

  • Joining the Recording Academy and Behind the Record to help promote and share recognition for all creators.​ Sign up here to receive an alert when the Credit Cover generator is released
  • Creating a custom Behind the Record Credit Cover on the Recording Academy’s campaign webpage
  • Posting your Credit Cover across social media channels and tagging those who worked on your project. Use hashtags #GiveCredit #WeAreMusic #BehindTheRecord

Artists can create Credit Covers for a single or album, and all covers will live in a gallery on the site for music fans to view and discover the roles of creatives behind some of their favorite records. In addition to supporting the initiative on social media, artists may also create a custom vinyl sleeve for “extra credit.”

Behind the Record is supported by the Recording Academy’s Producers & Engineers Wing®. Jaxsta, a database of official (not crowd-sourced) music credit information for members of the music community, provided credits for Merlin, Warner Music, Sony Music, and Universal Music Group releases. Additional partners for Behind the Record include Pandora, TIDAL, and Genius. For more information, or if interested in creating a limited edition sleeve, please contactgivecredit@recordingacademy.com or visit www.grammy.com/behindtherecord. Follow and join the global conversation on social media using the hashtags #GiveCredit, #WeAreMusic, and #BehindTheRecord.

A county in Florida is going under quarantine after Giant African land snail were discovered there

A Florida county is under quarantine due to the discovery of a fast-growing population of invasive giant African land snails.

The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS) confirmed there were giant African land snails in the New Port Richey area of Pasco County on June 23, according to FDACS’ website.
The snails pose a health risk to humans because they carry a parasite called rat lungworm, which can cause meningitis, Christina Chitty, a public information director at FDACS, told CNN.

They can produce up to 2,500 eggs per year, so the population is difficult to control.

According to Chitty, the population in Pasco County likely originated from the illegal pet trade. Giant African land snails are illegal to own as pets in the United States. But some exotic pet owners still keep the invasive pests. If the owners discard them into the wild or accidentally lose them, they can quickly establish a foothold, feeding on over 500 different plant species and even consuming the paint and stucco off houses as a source of calcium.
Chitty said the department is currently investigating the population and determining how many snails are in Pasco County. The snails are native to east Africa and can grow up to 8 inches long.

The quarantine took effect June 25 and prevents residents from moving the snail or related items, like plants and soil, in or out of the designated quarantine area. Residents who think they have spotted a giant African land snail are advised to call the FDACS hotline and avoid touching the snail without gloves on due to the meningitis risk.
According to Chitty, FDACS plans to spend three years eradicating the population in Pasco County, using the pesticide metaldehyde to treat the soil.

“The goal is to eradicate” the snails, said Chitty. “It is a comprehensive and extensive process.”
This is not the first time Florida has dealt with an invasion of giant snails. In 2011, a population of the pests was discovered in Miami-Dade County. It wasn’t until 2021 the population was fully eradicated.
While the snails in Miami-Dade County had grey-colored flesh, the snails in Pasco County have white flesh, said Chitty.
