Elton John
The Rolling Stones

Top Rock Album
The Lumineers, III

The awards, which are based on chart activity from March 23, 2019 – March 14, 2020, were delayed from April to Wednesday, October 14 as a result of the coronavirus. Kelly Clarkson will host the ceremony live from the The Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles; it will air at 8pm ET on NBC.
