Steve Riley & the Mamou Playboys Get Grammy Nomination
Gone is the short-lived Best Cajun/Zydeco Album of the Year Grammy award. It was tossed as part of the Grammy folks reducing the total number of awards they hand out each year.
The only shot that a Cajun or Zydeco artist has is pretty much just the Best Regional Roots Music Album category.
Lo and behold, we got a nod.
Fellow Louisiana musicians Rebirth Brass Band and CJ Chenier also received nominations in this category.
Check out the complete list of nominations up for this award:
Can’t Sit Down
Wao Akua – The Forest Of The Gods
Rebirth Of New Orleans
Not Just Another Polka
