It was another night of success for Bob Dylan at the 49th Annual Grammy Awards. Could it have been predicted? Well, considering the fact that his latest studio album "Modern Times" reached the peak of the Billboard charts, yes. Plus during the past few years Dylan has been a regular guest and winner at various award shows.
In the category "Best Solo Rock Vocal Performance (for a solo vocal performance, Singles or tracks only)" Dylan's "Someday Baby" made the race against Tom Petty, Neil Young, Beck, and John Mayer. The song was also nominated in the category "Best Rock Song". And "Modern Times" won the award for "Best Contemporary Folk/Americana Album (Vocal or Instrumental)". In this category Dylan beat Jackson Browne, Mark Knopfler & Emmylou Harris, Rosanne Cash, and Guy Clark.
So while the times are not that modern anyway, Dylan just keeps on doing his thing as always. The difference however is that this time 'round people don't boo him anymore, they give him awards. And that's about exactly how it should be.
