Chris Cornell, who died by suicide in May 2017 at age 52, was also nominated for best rock album for the posthumous covers record No One Sings Like You Anymore Vol. 1.

Toni has previously covered her dad's music, and in January 2021 recorded Temple of the Dog's "Hunger Strike" to mark its 30th anniversary.

"'Hunger Strike' was released 30 years ago today. It's not only one of the most iconic songs of all time but one of my personal favorites," she wrote. "I recorded it for Music Lives to raise money for covid relief in April 2020 and in tribute to my dad who would have been the first to do everything he could to help."

"I love you daddy and I'm so proud of what you created, who you are and everything you believed in," she wrote. "This song represents all of that to me ."

The teen has also launched a mental health podcast called Stop the Stigma, which she told PEOPLE in October 2020 was her family's way of raising awareness of the disease that took their father from them (Chris was also dad to daughter Lily, 21, and son Christopher, 16).

"My father suffered from a disease that runs in our family, both his parents were alcoholics,"she said. "The most important thing we can do is know what it is and share our story, so that my brother and I can understand why it happened and prevent others from suffering the same way."

"My dad should still be here," she added. "No one should have to go through this pain and loss. We can make a change by stopping the stigma and following the science."
