|The Band Courtbouillon – GRAMMY Nominated!|
UPDATE: The Band Courtbouillon has been awarded the GRAMMY for Best Regional Roots Album!
Congrats to musical geniuses Wayne Toups, Steve Riley, Wilson Savoy, Eric Frey, and Joel Savoy and also to ourselves here at Valcour! A lot of hard work went into this and the recognition is deserved by all!
Who needs a Cajun and Zydeco GRAMMY category? The Band Courtbouillon, the self-titled release on Valcour of the super group featuring Wayne Toups, Steve Riley and Wilson Savoy, has been nominated for a GRAMMY in the Regional Roots Category. The Band Courtbouillon is a great combination of some of Cajun music’s best talent coming together to sing the songs they grew up with. With no gimmicks and very honest production, the recording is authentic, entertaining, and chock full of great tunes. Another artist who has worked with Valcour, Corey Ledet, was also recognized as a nominee for a recent album. We are proud to have worked with all these guys and wish them good luck!
