LOL I tried to be graceful about it, but heck yeah... it got the impression the Academy actually aimed to honor Memphis Minnie by giving Alabama Shakes the award.

Sadly, they missed it...by a mile.
Copying roots, is not the same as having created them.

Tonight's the big night. Glen's track "Arkansas Farmboy" from his 2017 album Adios has been nominated for a Grammy in the category "Best American roots performance". Will Glen win a final posthumous Grammy? Fingers crossed for Glen's family and producer/friend Carl Jackson who produced AND wrote this beautiful track.
