Grammy Awards ... Why Bother?

The 47th annual Grammy Awards are over now and the usual sniping is going on. Like this review: Watch Grammys -- Or Gouge Out Own Eyes?.

Here are a couple of award winners we can get behind. Otherwise we'll reserve comment.

  • Contemporary Folk Album: "The Revolution Starts ... Now," Steve Earle.
  • Contemporary Blues Album: "Keep It Simple," Keb' Mo'.
  • Country Collaboration With Vocals: "Portland Oregon," Loretta Lynn and Jack White.
  • Pop Vocal Album: "Genius Loves Company," Ray Charles and Various Artists.
  • Alternative Music Album: "A Ghost Is Born," Wilco.
  • Solo Rock Vocal Performance: "Code of Silence," Bruce Springsteen.

    Then there was the tribute to Southern rock with Lynyrd Sknyrd, Elvin Bishop, Dicky Betts, Gretchen Wilson and Tim McGraw which included "Sweet Home Alabama".

    So does anybody have any idea why Gretchen Wilson sang the song's key line "Well, I hope Neil Young will remember"?
