Complete List of 2010 Grammy Award Winners

Nashville was well represented last night at the 2010 Grammy Awards.  There were some stellar performances from the likes of Pink, Zac Brown Band, Lady Antebellum, Maxwell, Andrea Bocelli & Mary J. Blige, and Jeff Beck w/ Imelda May.

The Grammy Awards once had an overflowing of superior artistic talent that included all genres, some that aren’t featured any longer such as Jazz, Classical, Gospel, Bluegrass, and even student musicians with prodigious talent.  Now the show has fallen into the grip of ratings chasing mediocrity and is no better at showcasing true talent and artistry than any other award show you will watch this time of year.

I am very proud of the Nashville music community though.  Kings of Leon, Steve Wariner, Lady Antebellum, Zac Brown Band, Keith Urban, Taylor Swift, Third Day and so many more help us shine as the true Music City.
