Ramblin' Jack Elliott Wins Grammy!

Last night national treasure Ramblin' Jack Elliott won the Grammy for Best Traditional Blues Album for his album "A Stranger Here." I'm really happy for him, I heard that he had triple bypass heart surgery a while back and seems to be doing alright now, and at 78 that's quite a feat. God bless Jack Elliott.

Jack gave the best acceptance speech of the night, vintage, classic Elliott. The CD is a great reinterpretation of old blues tunes and the Ranmblin' boy well deserves the honor. Go to the pre telecast and run it up to about 2 hours and 15 minutes and listen to it yourself.

I didn't get a chance to talk with him, but I'm thrilled that he won!
