Thanks, Lew. It's nice to hear that one of our favorites was recognized. Same goes for D2D and the folks behind it.

Worth a revisit, IMHO:

I scrolled through the list and noticed that Leonard Cohen was nominated for the Best American Roots Performance.  It's good to know that the category is still somewhat expansive.
