Wayne Toups, Steve Riley and Wilson Savoy “The Band Courtbouillon” Nominated For A Grammy Award
Yesterday, the Grammy nominations came out and we have learned that “The Band Courtbouillon” CD which consists of Cajun Music superstars Wayne Toups, Steve Riley and Wilson Savoy have been nominated for a Grammy award.
The CD titled “The Band Courtbouillon” has been nominated in the category “Best regional Roots Music Album.”
The CD from Wayne, Steve and Wilson consists of fourteen songs with a mix of new songs and some classic Cajun hits. It truly is a great record and very worthy of the Grammy nomination it received.
Who needs a Cajun and Zydeco GRAMMY category? The Band Courtbouillon, the self-titled release on Valcour of the super group featuring Wayne Toups, Steve Riley and Wilson Savoy, has been nominated for a GRAMMY in the Regional Roots Category.
The Band Courtbouillon is a great combination of some of Cajun music’s best talent coming together to sing the songs they grew up with. With no gimmicks and very honest production, the recording is authentic, entertaining, and chock full of great tunes.
Another artist who has worked with Valcour, Corey Ledet, was also recognized as a nominee for a recent album. We are proud to have worked with all these guys and wish them good luck!
The 55th Annual Grammy Awards will be on Sunday, February 10th, 2013 and be televised on CBS.
We play a few cuts from the record here on Cajun Radio so listen up to here their great music! From all of us here at Cajun Radio, we would like to congratulate Wayne Toups, Steve Riley and Wilson Savoy on this great accomplishment and for the beautiful music!
