Who the 'Bleep' is Linda Chorney Linda Chorney’s story is the Moneyball of music. You don’t have to be a baseball player to love that story--and you won’t need to be a musician to love hers. Linda performed her original music for 30 years, taking gigs all over the world, waiting for her big break. At the tender age of 51--with a lot of moxie and a little help from her friends--Chorney recorded the album of her dreams, Emotional Jukebox, earning her a Grammy nomination. She made history as the first completely independent singer-songwriter without a manager, publicist or record label to achieve this recognition in a category of legends like Robert Plant, Willie Nelson, and Bob Dylan. The industry, however, was not pleased that an outsider had slipped past the gatekeepers. They tried to undermine her nomination and destroy her career, from accusations of cheating to actual death threats. They were the Bill Buckners, and Chorney was the ball that got through their legs. And, in the end, the industry figured out a way to get a bigger glove. From the elation to the agony of her hilarious, unbridled, unbelievable underdog journey, this is your backstage pass to the inside story of the Grammys. Fasten your seat belts for a wild ride with Linda, as she sings and eventually lands on the Red Carpet. And get a taste of what the indie artist's life is like--the kind of artist who does it all for the love of making music. “My Cinderella story didn't turn out the way I had envisioned. But I took it like a woman. (Well, more like a teenage boy trapped in a woman’s body) At least my true story has as much comedy as tragedy.” Linda Chorney
