A couple of years ago the Grammys decided to do away with a bunch of categories including the Cajun & Zydeco category.  That hasn't stopped our great Louisiana artists from getting nominated in other categories though.

Our area is represented well in the Best Regional Roots Music Album category as both Corey Ledet and the all-star group The Band Courtbouillon featuring Wayne Toups, Steve Riley and Wilson Savoy were nominated.

Here are the nominees in this category:

Malama Ko Aloha (Keep Your Love)

Keola Beamer
['Ohe Records]

Shi Kéyah – Songs For The People

Radmilla Cody
[Canyon Records]

Pilialoha

Weldon Kekauoha
['Ohelo Records]

Nothin' But The Best

Corey Ledet With Anthony Dopsie, Dwayne Dopsie And André Thierry
[Corey Ledet]

The Band Courtbouillon

Wayne Toups, Steve Riley & Wilson Savoy

[Valcour Records]The 55th Annual Grammy Awards will be handed out February 10th at 7pm on CBS. Good luck boys, here's to hoping one of our south Louisiana albums wins big!
