Congrats to the Tedeschi Trucks Band on a Grammy!

 


How often does a band get a Grammy on its debut album?! Okay, Derek Trucks, who is now a full-time member of the Allman Brothers and has recently toured with the likes of Eric Clapton is no "amateur musician." After all he did win a Grammy last year for Already Free: http://www.derektrucks.com/news/already-free-wins-grammy. However, Trucks, his wife Susan Tedeschi and the rest of the Tedeschi Trucks Band members deserve full credit for winning the 2012 Best Blues Album!! I expect many more excellent albums from them in the future!

I'd also like to note something pretty dam awesome: out of the 5 nominees for the Grammy, 3 or 60% were associated with the Allman Brothers! Gregg Allman was nominated for his 1st album in many years, Low Country Blues. Warren Hayes was nominated for Man in Motion.
