The Grammys took place last Sunday night in New York City…..We’re going to give you all the Blues Winners from last Sunday from all the Blues Categories….Here are all of them….All two of them….The Nominees for Best Contemporary Blues Album were:

Roll and Tumble by R.L. Boyce
and Sonny and Brownie’s Last Train by Guy Davis
AND THE WINNER WAS…..BLUES AND LONESOME BY THE ROLLINGS STONE…..Wait…Did we make a mistake here??? The Rolling Stones winning for the Best Traditional Blues Album….Out of all the traditional blues men and women in the world, they gave it to the Rolling Stones….Over Guy Davis, Eric Bibb and all the others…..Let’s check that out…Something is amiss here………………..You checked it….And that’s who the Best Traditional Blues Album went to…..Nothing against the Rolling Stones, I love them, but aren’t they a rock band…..Since Jay Z was shut out last weekend, maybe he can record a Traditional Blues Album and get a Grammy next year……..

And if you didn’t watch the Grammys on last weekend, Gary Clark Jr and John Baptiste did a great job paying a tribute to the late Fats Domino and the late Chuck Berry.  Hats off to them for making Fats and Chuck Proud….
