THE BLUESNEWS FROM THE WORLD OF THE BLUESBLUES  

​FOR THE WEEKEND OF JANUARY 25-26, 2020

The Grammys are this weekend….Sunday night the 26th on CBS…It’s hosted by Alicia Keys, and it’s going to be different this year because their CEO, the first female for the recording academy, was placed on leave a couple of weeks ago for misconduct allegations.  Wow….You picked a fine time to put me on leave Lucille…..Don’t know where that’s going yet….Since we’re in the World of the Blues, there are only two categories that’s in it for us.  Category 49, Best Traditional Blues Album, and Category 50, Best Contemporary Blues Album. Let me see who I recognize in either Category……Bobby Rush is nominated in the Best Traditional Blues Album Category for his Sitting On Top of the Blues Album……and Christone Kingfish Ingram for his KingFish nominated in the same category…….and In the Best Contemporary Blues Album Category….Gary Clark Jr for his This Land Album and Sugaray Rayford for his Somebody Save Me Album……The rest, your guess is as good as mine…..To see huge category of Blues Categories, all two of them, we have a link to the nominees on the BluesNews Page at bluestimeinthecity.com…..I’m watching so I can see Lizzo perform…..She is so much fun to watch…..
