Not The Blues - Bluesman Chris Thomas King was banned from the Contemporary Blues GRAMMY category for 2019's award season. This makes no sense to Jon or Pete and certainly not to Chris who penned an open letter to the GRAMMYs trying to sort out what just happened.
Chris, Jon and Pete sit in for a discussion about not just the history of the Blues, but also growing up in his dad, Tabby Thomas' place Tabby's Blues Box and Heritage Hall. UMMM He grew up in a Blues Hall and the GRAMMYs think he's not the blues? Let's start a new list, who's more the Blues than CTK!
Controversy aside, Chris' GRAMMY banned album Hotel Voodoo is marvelous. Get the album on Chris' homepage...or spin it on @spotify.
