A Wink and A Nod

3 02 2010

With a wink and a nod Sweet Iced Tea sends our best to Memphis natives, Booker T. Jones and Andrew Van Wyngarden for Grammy wins and nominations. 

Andrew Van Wyngarden, one half of the band MGMT, received a Grammy nomination for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals, but the award went to the Black Eyed Peas.  “I Gotta Feeling” MGMT might enjoy their newly found fame.

Booker T. Jones, a legend of song and musical prowess WON the award for Best Pop Instrumental Album for Potato Hole.  Having not produced an album since 1994, Mr. Jones said, “I really feel like I’ve been opened up again… I don’t know how to put it, except it’s like I can see again.”

I rather enjoy that statement. Sometimes we get lost within ourselves and life can be overwhelming.  All too often we forget that creativity is not a rushing river, but that there can be dry spells along the way. 

Glad to have you back Mr. Jones.
