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!
