Not much difference between the blues and church songs but the words. The blues is a natural feeling and a true feeling. The blues is the truth, you hear them singing that 'you done broke my heart' and this and that - that's the naked truth - Pop Staples, Chicago Tribune article

That sounds interesting.

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.
