A friend of mine who works for Eric Clapton just called me all exited because he got word that The Road to Escondido had won the Grammy for best contemporary blues album. Eric's won plenty of Grammies but what they're all stoked about is that this'll be the first Grammy win for Eric's partner on the record, J.J. Cale. Most people just know his work because of songs he wrote that other people have covered, like "Cocaine," "Call Me the Breeze," "Magnolia," and "After Midnight," to name a few that have sold millions. This one is called "The Problem," from J.J.'s latest solo effort, "To Tulsa And Back." It's about time he got the recognition for his amazing work!
