An amazing year for Warren Haynes continues this week with a ‘Best Blues Album’ GRAMMY nomination for his mighty ‘Man In Motion’ (Stax/Concord Music Group) and an in-depth cover story in the new issue of Relix Magazine. This is Haynes’ 8th Grammy Nomination, but his first as a solo artist. His previous nominations have come as a member of his band Gov’t Mule and the Allman Brothers Band. He previously won a Grammy Award as a member of The Allman Brothers Band in 1996 for “Best Rock Instrumental Performance” for the song “Jessica.”
Haynes’ annual Mountain Jam Festival has also been nominated for ‘Music Festival Of The Year’ by Pollstar. The 8th annual edition will take place in Hunter, NY May 31-June 3.
