I’ve been getting quite a bit of mail lately from folks wishing me good luck at the upcoming Grammy Awards and telling me that they’ll be watching the telecast.
I appreciate that, but I thought I should let you know that the category in which I am nominated, American Roots, will not be featured on the portion broadcast on CBS. The good news is, however, that there is still a way you can watch.
Preceding the telecast, which is Sunday night  February 5th at 8 p.m. Eastern time, there will be a Premiere Ceremony which will air live on GRAMMY.com at 3:30 p.m. Eastern. This is where the majority of Grammy winners will be announced, and with a simple click you can join in on the fun. 
There are almost 100 different Grammy categories, and it’s impossible for all those to be included in a two-hour TV special. Therefore, to make sure all the nominees get recognized, City National Bank will sponsor the Premiere Ceremony.
I hope lots of you will tune in with your fingers crossed. Regardless of the outcome, it’s an honor to be nominated, and I’m looking forward to being there.
As the ol’ country boy down home used to say, “Don’t miss it if you can!”
