THE BLUESNEWS FROM THE WORLD OF THE BLUESBLUES
FOR THE WEEKEND OF SEPTEMBER 27-28, 2014

In Nashville on a couple of weeks ago, September 17th to be exact, the Americana Honours and Awards presented Taj Mahal with their Lifetime Achievement Award. He got the award for Performance.  Taj has been a mainstay of the blues for many decades, and he, along with other artists, were presented awards in different categories.  Congrats to Taj Mahal, and I’m gone paint my Mailbox Blue. The ceremony was held at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville.

Bobby Womack passed away in June, and now, sites are saying that Bobby was not in the best financial shape when he made the transition, and left a lot of debt for his family.  It’s reported that he owed 250K in back child support, and at least 400K in unpaid loans.  The sites are saying that the music rights and royalties will pay down some of the debt.  Pay down….The man had hundreds of songs.  A couple of songs should pay off everything.  To all on air personalities out there, get Bobby in your rotation.

There are some cruel people lurking in cyberspace out there and they are doing some nasty stuff.  It was reported last Monday that B.B. King had made the transition.  After about 1 million people saw the posting, they found that it was a hoax.  A RIP B.B. King was posted on a FaceBook page and had everyone going in circles.  There have been many hoaxes play on celebrities by pranksters in cyberspace, but as of the production of this show, the Thrill has not Gone.

THE BLUESNEWS FROM THE WORLD OF THE BLUESBLUES
FOR THE WEEKEND OF SEPTEMBER 13-14, 2014

I don’t know if you watch America’s Got Talent with Nick Cannon, but on watching it last week, I was very impressed by a young 12 year brat that did a rendition of I’d Rather Go Blind.  His name is Quantavius Johnson and he’s from Franklin Tennessee.  The good thing about the little brat is that, he nailed it.  The kid did one heck of a job with the song.  The little brat says he loves to sing with his grand mother.  He’s in the finals of AMT, and you can watch the show and vote to put him over the top…The little brat was really good….Got a standing ovation from the judges…..You go little brat….

Trudy Lynn has a new BCD entitled “Royal Oaks Blues Café.” I just played a cut from it…Effervescent Daddy……As of last weekend, it was the top selling blues album on the charts as compiled by Neilson SoundScan… Trudy is out of Houston, and she was the winner of the Jus Blues KoKo Taylor Award for 2013.  When Trudy puts on a show, she puts on a show….Congrats to Trudy and her success…..

The announcements were made for the Kennedy Center Inductions in December.  Among the receipts this year is the great Al Green.  Green will be joined by Lily Tomlin, Tom Hanks, Sting, and Patricia McBride.   Al’s first hit, Tired of Being Alone, hit the charts in 1971, and it was all uphill for Al, until the grits hit the fan.  He came back to gospel where he originally started and then back to R and B…… One thing is for sure with Al Green… He can definitely sing R & B, gospel, or anything else, and his music will live forever.  Great choice by the Kennedy Center.  The induction ceremony will take place Sunday, December 7th
