BUCK69 and The 57th Grammys

I’m pleased to announce that Buck69’s CD “No Medicine Like The Blues” has qualified for the 1st round of voting in the 57th Grammys. In the category of Best Blues Album and for Best American Roots Song. There are 123 Albums that qualified in the Best Blues Album category And there are 311 Songs that qualified in the Best American Roots Song category. The 5 with the most votes after this 1st round will be the Grammy Nominees. The Recording Academy receives over 20,000 entries per year. Entries are recordings submitted for GRAMMY consideration by the media and active Grammy members from around the world. Entries that meet all eligibility requirements are then voted on by The Academy's Voting Members, and the results of that vote are the 5 nominations for each specific category. How many GRAMMY categories are there? There are currently 30 fields (General, pop, gospel, classical, etc.) and 83 categories within those fields. Who qualifies as a Voting Member? Recording Academy Voting Members are professionals with creative or technical credits on at least six commercially released tracks (or their equivalent). These may include vocalists, conductors, songwriters, composers, engineers, producers, instrumentalists, arrangers, art directors; album notes writers, narrators, and music video artists and technicians. What is the difference between Record Of The Year and Song Of The Year? The Record Of The Year category recognizes the artist’s performance as well as the overall contributions of the producer(s), recording engineer(s) and/or mixer(s) if other than the artist. The Song Of The Year category recognizes the songwriter(s). I'm so proud of all the band members who worked so hard to make this project come together. Alex Clawson, John Sevilla Almaguer, B J Love, Candice Coleman Lange, David Alan, and Randy Paredes. The odds are pretty astronomical to move into the top 5 without a label but feel good in knowing that we qualified for consideration in The 57th Grammys best 2014 blues release. You Guys RAWK!
