Yesterday’s (2 /9) Grammy Award for Best Bluegrass Album went to Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder for Honoring The Fathers of Bluegrass: Tribute to 1946 and 1947.
Congratulations to Ricky and the boys!
Alison Krauss and Robert Plant won 5 Grammies for their Raising Sand CD – Album Of The Year, Record Of The Year, Pop Collaboration With Vocals, Country Collaboration with Vocals, and Contemporary Folk/Americana Album.
B?©la Fleck & The Flecktones won the Best Pop Instrumental Album award for their Christmas-themed CD, Jingle All The Way.
Unfortunately, none of the other bluegrass or bluegrass-tinged artists or projects that received nominations went home with awards. Oh well… there’s always next year.
