Willie Nelson Wins Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album Grammy Honor

 

At age 85, Willie Nelson just added to his Grammy collection, earning his ninth honor during Sunday’s (Feb. 10) Grammys Premiere ceremony. Nelson earned Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album for My Way. The album marks Nelson’s 68th studio project and includes covers of numerous Frank Sinatra classics including “Fly Me To The Moon” and the classic title track.

Matt Rollings, a co-producer on the album alongside Buddy Cannon, accepted on Nelson’s behalf.

Nelson was also nominated this year for Best American Roots Performance, for “Last Man Standing.” The honor ultimately went to Brandi Carlile’s “The Joke.”

Nelson won his first Grammy in 1975 for Best Male Country Vocal Performance for “Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain.”
