Ryan’s Grammy report

 

RyanGrammyLossWhen it comes to Grammy Awards, our man Ryan Adams has a mixed track record. He’s quite adept at scoring nominations, including this year; but for all that, he has yet to actually win one of the darned things. And it looks like he’ll have to wait another year for his breakthrough, because he’s coming up empty so far at this year’s awards. Most of the Grammys were presented at the pre-telecast “Premiere Ceremony,” from which Ryan emerged 0 for 2 — losing rock performance to Jack White (which I expected), and rock song to Paramore (I expected him to lose, but not to them).

Grammy57He’s got one more shot, at rock album. But given the competition — Beck, Black Keys, Tom Petty, U2 — he’s the longest of longshots there, too. Meantime, I’m live-blogging the festivities here, so do drop in. Ryan, it seems, is not the only North Carolina native striking out tonight.

UPDATE: Well, Ryan also didn’t win rock album, which went to Beck’s Morning Phase, leaving him 0-for-7 lifetime at the Grammys. The rest of North Carolina fared no better, going 0-for-14 on the night; even Eric Church didn’t take any of his four nominations in the country categories.

ADDENDUM (2/10/2015): This probably made Ryan really glad he’s not more famous than he already is.

    The funny thing is Ryan’s album is objectively better than the other albums on that list, and I’d like to see someone who would disagree with that if they listened to all of them in a row

    Well, sir, you’re looking at someone who disagrees. If we’re talking about rock album, I’d rank this “Ryan Adams” album well behind Beck, and also behind Black Keys.
