The heck with the Grammy Awards. Ryan Adams is nominated in the O Music Awards, which “celebrate the best in digital music, from the top artist on Twitter to the most innovative music app.” Below is Ryan’s nomination spiel, which makes it clear that his on-again-off-again Twitter usage is what got him the nod (and it’s a pity he’s not still blogging, he’d be a shoe-in to win). Just today, Ryan was giving Twitter shout-outs to Ezra Koenig for debuting at No. 1 on the charts with the new Vampire Weekend album. I wish I had more first-hand knowledge of Ryan’s Twitter universe; but when I tried to follow @TheRyanAdams on Twitter, I discovered that I am among the many people he has blocked. Oh well, so it goes. Still, vote early and vote often. The awards will be presented on June 19.
