San Antonio owns Grammy's Tejano category


Wow. I'll never call anything irrelevant again. I was so busy offending Barbra Streisand and Pet Shop Boys fans in my previous Grammy rant, I stupidly failed to mention that not one or some but ALL of the nominees for Best Tejano Album claim the 210. That's not all that surprising I suppose, but it's definitely worth recognizing, whether or not the Awards get the Rock and Hip-Hop categories right. The nominees are listed and linked below. My sincere congratulations to all of you, and just remember that no matter how much trash I talked about the awards, you were nominated for a Grammy, and I will never ever ever be, unless as one commenter suggested, they start giving awards for "outstanding ignorance."
