An article appearing in today's Boston Patriot Ledger seems to suggest that RCA has entered A Thousand Different Ways into this year's Grammy awards. And not just some random category either! We're talking about Record of the Year!
But don't start celebrating yet! -- this DOES NOT mean Clay has been nominated for a Grammy. (In fact, nominations don't come out until December.) Rather, this article suggests that RCA has submitted ATDW for to the Grammy awards for consideration.
The Grammys can consider most of the 180,000 records released in a given year, and all voting members can nominate songs or artists. Voting members are those who have produced a certain amount of work on the national level.Technorati tags: Clay Aiken, A Thousand Different Ways, ATDW, American Idol, Without You, Invisible
The various categories Bellevue is in range from 634 nominees in Record of the Year, to just 56 in Best Pop Performance by Duo or Group. Song of the Year includes 130 entrants, including work from people like K.T. Tunstall, Roseanne Cash and Ben Harper. Record of the Year includes competition from Aerosmith, Clay Aiken and Beyonce, so there is no guarantee Bellevue Cadillac will make it to the final list of nominees.
