This is all new to me, duh. I think it is about time I officially congratulate my fellow Monster Mega Star Nominees for Best Americana Album in the 54th Annual Grammys.
And today I learned more about the voting process. There are some folks out there, as you may have read, that don’t quite get why I am in there. They think I somehow infiltrated the system.
So today, a member of NARAS that is in support of my music, was pretty angry. I wasn’t happy about it, but I wasn’t pissed off.
May I encourage any Indi artists out there to join 365? There is so much talent out there that should be heard. There is real hope of being considered purely on the music’s merit. What an amazing opportunity. A real democracy.
And I hope you all get a chance to hear this album, filled with such brilliant musicians…and me.
Now I get why people are telling me I have already won. It is an honor to be nominated. So bully away! You can’t bring me down!
And if I may quote my favorite, Forrest Gump, “And that’s all I have to say about that.”
