Pearl Jam‘s Eddie Vedder is among the nominees for the 2022 Guild of Music Supervisors Awards.

As its title suggests, the GMS Awards celebrate the best music supervisors, who select the music for visual media including films, TV, video games and trailers, along with the best songs written for such media.

Vedder is nominated in the Best Song Written and/or Recorded for a Film category for his song “My Father’s Daughter,” which he co-wrote with Glen Hansard for the film Flag Day. The track notably also marked the musical debut of Eddie’s daughter, Olivia Vedder.

Other nominees in the category include JAY-Z and Kid Cudi‘s “Guns Go Bang,” from The Harder They Fall; “Dos Oruguitas,” from Encanto; Anderson .Paak‘s “Fire in the Sky,” from Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings; and Beyoncé‘s “Be Alive,” from King Richard.

Meanwhile, Flag Day music supervisor Tracy McKnight is nominated for Best Music Supervision for Film Budgeted Under $25 Million. The film’s soundtrack includes a number of original songs from Vedder, Hansard and Cat Power, as well as a cover of R.E.M.‘s “Drive” by the “Even Flow” rocker.

The 2022 GMS Awards take place March 20. For more info, visit GMSAwards.com.

Vedder just released his new solo album Earthling last Friday, and is currently touring with his Earthlings solo band, which features Hansard, Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith, ex-RHCP guitarist and current Pearl Jam touring member Josh Klinghoffer, Jane’s Addiction bassist Chris Chaney, and guitarist and producer Andrew Watt.
