Late rocker Chris Cornell earned a Grammy Award almost two years after his death.

"Chris Cornell deserved this more than anyone", one fan wrote on Twitter. "While he touched the hearts of millions, most importantly he is known for to us is for being the greatest father in our ear". "He is a rock icon, the godfather of grunge and the creator of a movement, whose contribution to music history made a lasting impact across genres and generations", Christopher said.

I Am the Highway: A Tribute to Chris Cornell concert will feature performances by members of Soundgarden, Audioslave and Temple of the Dog with the Foo Fighters, Metallica and Ryan Adams among those paying their respects.

'It was very difficult because, obviously, we miss him so much and we saw him work on this so hard - he was always working on it music [because] it was his passion, ' the 14-year-old shared. It was Cornell's final original material recorded before he took his own life on May 18, 2017.

The singer attended the Grammy Awards previous year with his wife, their daughter Toni, and his daughter from another relationship, Lillian Jean Cornell. Soundgarden won the award for Best Metal Performance with Spoonman.
