    Thanx for posting. Good song. I hadn’t heard any of Old Crow’s work other than the iconic “Wagon Wheel”. Rootsy! Did Kanye agree with this award? Or doesn’t he care for folk?

      Jay,
      I don’t think this is given at the Grammy televised ceremony so Kanye didn’t get the chance to tell them it should have gone to someone else. This is the second time he’s done this. Last time it was to Taylor Swift. It’s time he was uninvited or at least kept in a separate room.

      • Jay Bird Says:

        Kanye is such a jackass. I recognized only about 25% of the Grammy nominees, so maybe it’s time to stop watching. Music goes in cycles, I am convinced, and I don’t think we are in a good one. Take me back to the 60’s or 90’s.

        Jay,

        I agree about us not being in a good cycle of music. My problem is I still have this love for 60’s and 70’s music and judge other music by those standards. Most don’t reach them.

    • Jay Bird Says:

      Kat, try the 90’s. Some good music (and I’m a 60’s guy). I have a Canadian bias toward this decade, since I was living on the border then. Great Big Sea, Barenaked Ladies, etc. But the “Country Women” did some good stuff, too. Mary-Chapin Carpenter, Patty Loveless… (and I’m not normally a country fan) Plus Counting Crows, Indigo Girls… 30-year cycle.

        Jay,
        Thanks for the suggestions. I have found a few of them already: Great Big Sea, Counting Crows and Mary Chapin Carpenter. I am willing to give more of them a chance. I love finding new music.
