My very "first BF" (see note below), Americana Country Music Legend Jim Lauderdale, is currently in the running to win a Grammy tomorrow.
His album, "Could We Get Any Closer?" is nominated for Best Bluegrass Album in the 52nd Grammy Awards, and if he wins it will be his third. (Interestingly, he's up against Steve Martin, also nominated in the same category.)
I just wanted to say that Jim's a terrific person, and one of the finest, most driven and talented musicians on the planet and nobody deserves more recognition for his consistently perfect contributions to the world of music than Lauderdale does.
So we're rooting for him tomorrow and asking you to keep your fingers crossed for him, as well.
Here's a link to his awesome Web site where you'll find information on his nominated album, "Could We Get Any Closer?" nominated for a Grammy for Could We Get Any Closer?
And you can also click this link to hear some clips from this amazing album.
Good luck, Jim!
Note: The term "Boyfriend" is 100% laughable, because the truth is there really isn't anyone less inclined to be mistaken as anyone's BF, ever, than Jim Lauderdale. The guy has always eaten, slept and, breathed work, but as a 17 yr. old college freshman, it was a comforting illusion. (Yes, that's right. I did say 17.)
