Chubby Carrier Gets Grammy Nod
Congrats to Chubby Carrier and his Bayou Swamp Band, winners of this year’s Best Zydeco or Cajun Music Album at the Grammy Awards! His latest effort is entitled “Zydeco Junkie” and it features special guests Jamie Bergeron and Geno Delafose.
Carrier becomes the fourth winner in the four-year-old zydeco/Cajun Grammy category, following in the footsteps of previous winners Terrance Simien, BeauSoleil and Buckwheat Zydeco. Carrier said those musicians and other pioneers made his Grammy victory possible.
Congrats Chubby, we know it’s been a long journey. And to the other nominees: D.L. Menard, Feufollet, Cedric Watson, and the Pine Leaf Boys, we salute you all for promoting our culture and heritage through your music.
