Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King gets Grammy nod

in Apolitical by
The Dave Matthews Band studio efforts have been rewarded. The Grammys nominated Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King for Album of the Year, and Best Rock Album. You may recall the Grammys’ infamous snub of LeRoi Moore, and the backlash they received from it.

But this nomination should not be viewed as a mea culpa by the voters; Big Whiskey was clearly good enough on its own merit to be nominated, and not out of some pity vote. This is the first DMB album to be nominated for Album of the Year. The Grammys air on CBS January 31, 2010. DMB will most likely be performing that evening as well.
