Grammy Watch - Ray's in the hunt

Grammy watch: Ray LaMontagne's newest album, God Willin' and the Creek Don't Rise, has been nominated for three awards, including song of the year for "Beg Steal or Borrow," plus Best Contemporary Folk album and Best Engineered Album (non-classical). The latter is slightly ironic considering Ray ditched uber-producer Ethan Johns this time around and recorded in his Western Mass. farmhouse.

Another Mainer who just missed out on a Grammy nod was Matt Bishop, who wrote and produced "Every Page I Turn" for Jonathan Edwards, and made it through the initial panel selections into the final stage, but didn't end up with a nomination in the end.
