The late Gregg Allman and Leonard Cohen among artists with multiple Grammy nominations

Ian Rawn; Mike Lawrie/Getty ImagesThe nominees for the 60th Grammy Awards were announced this morning and while most of the major categories were dominated by young pop, rap and R&B acts, a number of veteran artists also are in the running for some prestigious honors.

Among the older musicians receiving multiple nominations are two acclaimed artists who are no longer with us: Gregg Allman and Leonard Cohen.

Allman, who died in May at age 69, received nominations for Best Americana Album for his posthumous final record, Southern Blood, and for Best American Roots Song for the tune "My Only True Friend." Cohen, who died in November 2016, also was a two-time nominee, for Best Rock Performance for "You Want It Darker" and Best American Roots Performance, for "Steer My Way."

Other veteran acts vying for trophies at next year's Grammys include Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, Yusuf -- a.k.a. Cat Stevens -- the late Glen Campbell, Randy Newman, and The Grateful Dead.

Dylan's three-disc standards collection Triplicate is up for the Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album award, The Stones' Blue & Lonesome is in the running for Best Traditional Blues Album, Springsteen will vie for Best Spoken Word Album for the audio version of his memoir Born to Run, and Yusuf's The Laughing Apple landed a nod for Best Folk Album.

Campbell, who passed away in August, received a Best American Roots Performance nomination for his song "Arkansas Farmboy," while Newman will compete for the Best Arrangement, Instruments and Vocals honor for "Putin." As for The Dead, the band's expansive documentary Long Strange Trip is nominated for Best Music Film.
