(Los Angeles, CA) – The Committee I Chair for The Recording Academy – The Blues Task Force – submitted a proposal for two Blues categories to their Awards and Nominations department earlier this year which passed The Recording Academy’s scrutiny and was ratified by the Board of Trustees in May.
Thanks to those efforts we now have Best Traditional Blues album and Best Contemporary Blues album within the American Roots category, effective immediately.
