Blues Nominees for the 2018 Grammy Awards

Another year, another Grammy award ceremony. On January 28, 2018 the 60th Grammy Awards will take place in New York City.

Yesterday, the official Grammys website confirmed the full list of nominees for the event, and as usual the only nominees we care about are the blues artists!

So here you go:

Best Traditional Blues Album:

Migration Blues - Eric Bibb

Elvin Bishop's Big Fun Trio - Elvin Bishop's Big Fun Trio

Roll And Tumble -  R.L. Boyce

Sonny & Brownie's Last Train - Guy Davis & Fabrizio Poggi

Blue & Lonesome - The Rolling Stones

Best Contemporary Blues Album:

Robert Cray & Hi Rhythm - Robert Cray & Hi Rhythm

Recorded Live In Lafayette -  Sonny Landreth

TajMo - Taj Mahal & Keb' Mo'

Got Soul - Robert Randolph & The Family Band

Live From The Fox Oakland - Tedeschi Trucks Band

Wow; there's a huge list of major players... I believe it will be a heated battle (that won't be on the main event but anyways...)

My predictions:

Traditional Blues: Eric Bibb
Contemporary: Robert Cray
