Gregg Allman was nominated for two Grammy Awards for his final album, the posthumous Southern Blood: Best Americana Album and Best American Roots Song for  “My Only True Friend,” which he co-wrote with Scott Sharrard. Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit were nominated in the same categories for their LP The Nashville Sound and song “If We Were Vampires.” I’m pretty sure Jason would gladly pass it on to Gregg.

The Tedeschi Trucks Band’sLive From The Fox Oakland is nominated for Best Contemporary Blues Album, along with Robert Randolph & The Family Band, Taj Mahal & Keb’ Mo’, Robert Cray & Hi Rhythm andSonny Landreth.

The 60th annual Grammy Awards will be held on January 28 at Madison Square Garden in New York City and broadcast on CBS. Complete list of nominees here.
