    If you needed confirmation of the irrelavence of the Grammy awards, you need go no further than their track record of awarding Spoken Word albums to loon left-wing politicians like Bill Clinton, Jimmie Carter, and now media darling Obama bin Laden. Can you say Left Coast love fest? I'm much more interested in the IBMA, Americana Awards, or even the annual 3rd Coast Music Freeform American Roots Best of list. Yet I suppose the Grammy's still sell records, so here goes my novel of a rundown...

    Record of the Year: Amy Winehouse. I can't say anything bad about Amy Winehouse. I can say bad things about Beyoncé and Justin Timberlake. I liked Foo Fighters at one time just haven't paid them much mind. So we'll call this one best of a bad lot.

    Album of the Year: Herbie Hancock. I would have loved to see These Days. I mean, pile on John Anderson, Guy Clark, Rodney Crowell, Diana Krall & The Del McCoury Band, and how can you go wrong? Then again, like they would give Vince Gill a mainstream award. …

    Alison Krauss
    She is called the 'Queen of Bluegrass Country'..
    She is the winner of 20 Grammy Awards, in a career spanning more than 2 decades..(!!!!)
    I just lover her husky voice..it sounds so sweet..!!..
    and that has become her signature style...
    The first song which I heard of Alison Krauss...was "Baby, Now That I've Found You"..and I loved it!
    I think she makes a great team with Union Station..together they have given us great songs..in particular I love "Restless", "Let Me Touch U For awhile", "Goodbye's All We have", "When U say Nothin' At All", "Stay" and "Simple Love"...
    She is one of my all time favourite country singers..
