And the Bluegrass Grammy goes to...

Presented by someone who- it would appear- never before uttered the word 'bluegrass' in her life, and who couldn't pronounce 'Jarosz' even given two tries...the 2017 Bluegrass Grammy was awarded on Sunday, Feb. 12 12 to...O'Connor Band with Mark O'Connor "Coming Home" on Rounder Records.
Not much point in arguing. I would be surprised if anyone within the industry-outside the band and label- had suggested it was the best bluegrass album of the year. It wasn't, and I certainly didn't read of anyone declaring it so.
Still, enough Grammy voters were inclined to go in their direction- who am I to argue? Congrats to the O'Connors.
I know which of the five nominated albums was most deserving.
I'm guessing you do as well.
I will give "Coming Home" another listen tonight. It is a good album.
