Peter Case nominated for a Grammy

He pulled up to the Buttonwood Tree in a rented Mustang, and rumpled clothes. He played his heart out for 45 of us in the tiny venue on Main Street. And I'm happy to inform you that his latest album, Let Us Now Praise Sleepy John, was just nominated for a Grammy in the "Traditional Folk" category. Congratulations Peter.

Congrats also to our friends the Pine Leaf Boys, Racines and the Lost Bayou Ramblers, all of whom are nominated in the new Cajun/Zydeco catergory. And to Springsteen, Levon Helm, Steve Earle, Patty Griffin, Kathy Fink, and the many other great artists who have been recognized.
