2011 Bluegrass Grammy

And the Best Bluegrass Album is… Mountain Soul II from Patty Loveless.

Anybody starting to see a pattern emerging where the bluegrass Grammy is concerned? There was a great deal of excitement when this category was added a few years ago, but while working bluegrass artists generally receive nominations, the winner seems to consistently be a country or pop artist who has dabbled in the world of grass.

But no hard feelings… Congratulations to Patty for this award!

Congrats as well to Carolina Chocolate Drops who won the Best Traditional Folk Album for Genuine Negro Jig.
