So, we all went to the Grammys and had a blast.  Flew in on Saturday, which is when they have a reception for the nominees.

At this reception, they give the nominees a medallion, which is made by Tiffany and Co..Pretty bad ass souvenir.

Sunday is the big day..It starts with the famed Red Carpet.  You walk down through this gauntlet of press people, and at the end you stand in front of about 50 cameras for a minute..then make your way in to the awards show.  First is the pre-telecast awards show, where they present the award for which we were nominated..We lost to Marty Stuart (congrats man!), but what an honor to be nominiated.
 After that comes the televised portion of the show..Highlights for me were:  the opening Aretha Franklin tribute, especially Christina - I don't care if she messed up the words to the National Anthem at the Super Bowl--this lady sang the shit out of some Aretha songs.  Also, Eminem was incredible, Dr. Dre, Usher, and Mick Jagger rocked the house.  The production of this show is really incredible.

and then, there is the after party, which had a Studio 54 theme and the Roots played an amazing set there.  
A few drinks, late night hang, and then off to Big Sky Montana!

And that's where I am now, deciding whether to ski or not to ski today.  Hope you enjoyed this little Grammy summary.. Thanks so much for all the supportive facebook and twitter comments.  Post at ya later!
