It was very emotional especially for Marie and Dylan Trout as Walter Trout won his first of two awards after many years of being nominated. They were truly not expecting to win as the competition for these categories were enormous. Of course, Walter was doing what he loved, playing a show in Minneapolis, his son Jon gave Walter the news as he was on stage.
Joe Louis Walker accepted the fifth Blues Music Award of his career, and the third time he won Contemporary Blues Male Artist (the first one was in 1988!). Sonny Landreth commented: "I am most grateful! These awards reflect the significance and commitment of The Blues Foundation's promise to keep the blues alive and well in communities across the country. It's an honor and an inspiration to be part of this family."
Provogue artists Joe Bonamassa and Beth Hart were also nominated for the album "Muddy Wolf at Red Rocks" and Contemporary Blues Female Artist, respectively. Beth Hart put on a stunning live performance at the award show and tore the house down as she played two songs from her latest album Better Than Home; Might As Well Smile, and Tell Her You Belong to Me.
