Jo-EL Sonnier started his year with a bang.  Last month on February 8th, Jo-EL Sonnier made a trip to Los Angeles to attend the Grammy awards as a nominee.  He was nominated in the category "Best Regional Roots Album".
Well we all know what happened next.  Hunter Hayes, who is also form Louisiana and a good friend of Jo-EL's, opened up the envelope and announced Jo-EL as the winner.
Until now, we haven't been able to see the actual announcement because it was done before the Grammy's went on the air for the live show.
Well Jo-EL Sonnier just posted the video of his acceptance speech on his Facebook page for all to see and we wanted to share it as well.
