HOLY SHIT!!! I GOT NOMINATED! I CANNOT BELIEVE IT!

Tonight I started receiving a bunch of Congratulation Emails….Letters from Fellow Grammy members.

Huh?  What is this all about?

I had a party earlier tonight.  It was just to celebrate the album, “Emotional Jukebox”, and the musicians that played and sang their hearts out on it.  I was totally not expecting to be in the final 5 nominees in BEST AMERICANA ALBUM.

I was competing with Jeff Bridges, John Hyatt, Emi Lou Harris, Levon Helm, Ry Cooder, Lucinda Williams, and 160 others.  So, as a nobody, I really didn’t think I could stand getting one of those 5.

Even after the emails, I thought it was a mistake.  I didn’t believe the congratulation upon congratulation.  I had to see it in black and white.

Well, as of midnight, I am officially the underdog nominee.  My heart is pounding.

I am over 50, and I don’t give a shit if people know.

Just because you are a certain age, doesn’t mean you should be discredited.  I guess I have paid my dues.  And now, it has paid off.

“It is an honor just to be nominated”!  You bet your sweet bipee!

Now I just need to find a manager! AHHHHHHH!
