Top 5 Pearl Jam Moments of 2019 #4

#4, A Grammy Nomination for Jeff Ament

A surprising amount of Pearl Jam news this year was actually Soundgarden news.  Joe Spix, Jeff Ament, and [his brother] Barry Ament were nominated for a GRAMMY this year for Best Record Packaging for their work on the Chris Cornell career retrospective, which contains a few Temple of the Dog songs and "Hey Baby! (Land of the New Rising Sun)," a Hendrix tune covered by McCready, Ament, Cameron, and Cornell (one member short of Temple of the Dog).

You'll have to tune in next year to see if the nomination turns into a win, but hey, maybe you'll see that in next year's Top Ten.
