Grammy-Phone me would ya?

Every year I tune in to The Grammy's. Been watching them for as long as I can remember getting into music. I remember as a child, before the days of PVRs and VCRs, I would sit as close to the TV as I possibly could, just so that I wouldn't miss anything. Nowadays, Ilook for my faves to make an appearance, that is unless they have gone to the big Grammy-Phone in the sky. Paul McCartney is still rocking as is Stevie Wonder and Smokey Robinson. Of course, there are many new performers on the scene.....rappers, hip hop, blues, rock. Some of the rapper and hip hop types I even recognize, and like, from my BodyJam classes. Way cool.

Last night, there were 2 highlights for me. One was Sugarland, starring Jennifer Nettles. She has a magnificent set of pipes. Sad song, but what a voice. Now, I am not a country fan, but I do like this....


The other was Robert Plant and Alison Krauss who walked away with a boat load of Grammy awards. Now, while they did not perform the following, it has to be my favourite at the moment.....Please Read the Letter


Happy listening....cheers.

That Sugarland song, I can't even listen to it because it makes me cry. Oy. What the hell did Alison Krause do to her face? I wish these women would stop with the Restilyn and Botox. It renders them so plastic. That being said, I love her music too and just downloaded that album last night on iTunes.

I like "Please Read the Letter" but I kind of prefer the old version that Robert Plant does with Jimmy Page.

I remember when I recognized everyone on the Grammys. LONG time ago, though.
