While Hunter Hayes stole the Acadiana spotlight last night with his three Grammy nominations, several other local musicians received Grammy nominations themselves. Corey Ledet, Anthony Dopsie, Dwayne Dopsie, and André Thierry were nominated in the Best Regional Roots Album category for their collaboration, NOTHIN' BUT THE BEST. The Band Courtbouillon--Wayne Toups, Steve Riley, and Wilson Savoy--were nominated in the same category for their self-titled release. They will compete against two Hawaiian artists and one Native American musician for the honor. The winner will be announced during the Grammy Awards Pre-Show on February 10.
