Gary Clark Jr. Wins Grammy Award for “Best Traditional R&B Performance”


GARY CLARK JR. WINS 2014 GRAMMY AWARD FOR “BEST TRADITIONAL R&B PERFORMANCE”

 

LETTERMAN APPEARANCE CONFIRMED FOR FEBRUARY 17TH

TOUR WITH KINGS OF LEON TO BEGIN NEXT MONTH
January 27th, 2014 – Singer, songwriter, and guitarist extraordinaire Gary Clark Jr. won a 2014 Grammy Award last night for “Best Traditional R&B Performance” for “Please Come Home.” The song appears on Clark’s debut album for Warner Bros. Records, Blak And Blu. This is the Austin native’s first Grammy Award. Originally nominated in two categories: “Best Rock Song” for “Ain’t Messin ‘Round,”  as well as “Best Traditional R&B Performance” – “Please Come Home,” this marks the first time in Grammy history that a single artist has been nominated in two different genre categories simultaneously from one album in the same year. 

In addition, Clark turned in an incendiary performance with Keith Urban on the live Grammy broadcast trading lead vocals and guitar solos on Urban’s “Cop Car”, from his current album.

 

In October 2012, Clark released Blak And Blu, which debuted on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart at No. 6 and received raves from many major music outlets, including The New York Times, which called Clark “a guitarist of deep magnetism and tremendous feel,” and Spin, which declared: “There truly is nobody else like him around.”  Rolling Stone recently dubbed Clark as “The Chosen One”.  Click here to view Clark’s road to the Grammy’s.
