Linda Chorney, Americana Grammy Underdog


I've got a story coming in Sunday's Inquirer A & E section about Linda Chorney, the Sea Bright, N.J. singer-songwriter whose album Emotional Jukebox is improbably up for best Americana album at the Grammy Awards next month in Los Angeles. Chorney's nomination in the usually more roots-country oriented cetegory, in which she's competing against Ry Cooder, Lucinda Williams, Emmylou Harris and Levon Helm, has caused a kerfuffle. Read my interview with Chorney here to learn the answer to the question posed in the T-shirt she's wearng in the photo ot the left.

Below, are a couple of Chorney video clips - one from a performance from the Light of Day benefit concerts in Asbury Park last weekend, and one for her song "Cherries." Below that, you'll find a Soundcloud player with several of her Emotional Jukebox tunes.
