Bernie Sanders may not have won the Democratic presidential candidate nomination, but the Vermont Senator has been nominated for a Grammy.

The nominees for the Grammy Awards were announced Tuesday, and Sanders was chosen in the spoken word category. Sanders released an audio version of his book “Our Revolution: A Future to Believe In,” along with actor Mark Ruffalo. The book came out just after the presidential election.

The category is filled with stars — Sanders and Ruffalo will face Neil Degrasse Tyson for “Astrophysics For People In A Hurry,” Bruce Springsteen for “Born To Run,” Shelly Peiken for “Confessions Of A Serial Songwriter” and Carrie Fisher for “The Princess Diarist.”

Politics has always been well represented in the category. Former President Barack Obama has won two Grammys, one in 2006 for “Dreams from My Father” and one in 2008 for “The Audacity of Hope.” Former President Jimmy Carter has also picked up two Grammys, one for 2016’s audio version of “A Full Life: Reflections at Ninety.” and a 2007 book titled “ “Our Endangered Values.” Former President Bill Clinton won a Grammy in 2005 for “My Life,” he also has several other nominations. 

Former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, who beat Sanders for the Democratic nomination has both a Grammy and a nomination. She won in 1997 for “It Takes a Village,” recorded while she was a First Lady in the White House. She was nominated in 2004 for her memoir  “Living History.”

Other politicians who have won Grammys were Sen. Al Franken and former Sen. Everett Dirksen.

Sanders has another album under his belt, “We Shall Overcome,” which was released in 1987. The album is full of folk songs, with Sanders providing commentary.

The spoken word Grammy was first created in 1959, but has gone through several name changes.

Last year’s winner was Carol Burnett for “In Such Good Company: Eleven Years of Laughter, Mayhem, and Fun in the Sandbox.”
