Hope the track wins a Grammy. It is a great instrumental and James Burton deserves a Grammy anyway for his outstanding contribution to music over the years.

Indeed! James Burton should be honoured for his great contribution. Let's keep our fingers crossed for this generous outstanding artist!

This is great news. He should be honored & I sincerely hope he wins. He is not only a great musician but a very decent guy. His organization, Little Kids Rock, is a prime example of his devotion to music & music for kids. On another note: too bad we can't say the same for the Hall of Shame in Cleveland. We have been trying to get DJ Fontana inducted for years but they just don't seem to get it. Of course, that museum is in the wrong location anyways. I sincerely hope Burton gets his Grammy.
