Message:  Kacey Jones Sings Mickey Newbury" was not nominated for a single Grammy. I know this will sound like a sore loser..so be it.

To be fair, I haven't heard all the nominees, especailly, the ones where Kacey would be involved, but it would appear you have to have a name that goes with the territory.

It's difficult to be objective but the producion values on "Kacey Jones Sings Mickey Newbury" were of the highest caliber. You can't truly ignore all the songs which were expertly done.

It's a young person's game. The world is too much like "American Idol".

It would seem that paying your dues dosn't count for much although some of the nominess have been around for a long time. You should know that the right contacts and the right amount of money were there.

There is a group of musicans, very talented musicians, who continue to play and recognition is seldom there. The Frank Brown Festival is one and Austin is another. These are places where the audience is appreciative of what they see.

I'm here to tell you that it is very rare.
