Did you know that Louisiana artists have received more than a dozen GRAMMY nominations this year alone? True story! And tonight is Louisiana's pre-GRAMMY celebration. Consider this your personal invitation to watch this virtual event streaming live from the Mint in New Orleans' French Quarter. The program will feature performances, exclusive interviews, and giveaways from artists like Shreveport's own native son Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Buddy Flett, the New Orleans Nightcrawlers, Bobby Rush, Sweet Cecilia, and more! It will also show off all the bayou state has to offer in the way of attractions, history, and artists from across Louisiana.

The 30-minute show will be streamed tonight starting at 7 pm and will be available on the Louisiana Travels' social media pages. Here's a link to the official Facebook invite.

Louisiana Lt. Governor Billy Nungesser says, 'Louisiana is home to some of the greatest music in the world. Every year talented Louisiana artists are nominated for GRAMMYs and we are excited to celebrate these artists and share performances by some of our nominees so you can Feed Your Soul with our one-of-a-kind music right in your own home. This was also an excellent opportunity for us to support these artists and venues that have been struggling during the pandemic.'

While live music is finally 'allowed' in Louisiana for inside venues, I can't wait for our next big arena concert at Brookshire's Arena. But for now, let's give thanks to Louisiana Travel for partnering with the Grammy Museum to bring this musical event to our living rooms!

The 63rd Annual GRAMMY Awards are this Sunday, March 14th at 7 pm on CBS. See the full list of nominees here.
