Blues Grammy album nominees announced — all 10 of them

Well, the Grammy nominees were announced today, and since I know you are all on the edge of your thoroughly disinfected seats awaiting the list, I thought I’d share the ten albums that earned Grammy’s attention in the blues category. Two categories, actually, traditional and contemporary.
