Gary Clark Jr. wins for best traditional R&B performance
Moments after performing “I’m In I’m Out & I’m Gone” from their Get Up! CD during tonight’s Grammy Awards pre-telecast, Ben Harper and Charlie Musselwhite got back up to the stage to accept this year’s award for blues album of the year, winning out over some fierce competition in James Cotton, Joe Bonamassa and Beth Hart, Bobby Rush, and a bunch of Musselwhite’s fellow harmonica players on the tribute album Remembering Little Walter.
Among other bluesy nominees, Gary Clark Jr. also picked an award – his first – for Best Traditional R&B Performance for “Please Come Home”.
Congratulations to all of this year’s winners and nominees!
