2010 Grammy for Best Children's Musical Album

The Grammy Award show was great this year with Taylor Swift, Beyonce and Lady Gaga but my favorite part is the part not ever shown, the Grammy Award for the best children's album. There were some really great performers up for a Grammy this year. Ziggy Marley, Cathy & Marcy and my personal favorites that I use all the time, Greg & Steve. It is always gratifying when the artists are actually children's performing artists, not cross-overs who are just trying to capitalize on the explosion of music for children.
Here is the list of the Nominees and the winner!

Ziggy Marley. Family Time

Cathy & Marcy With Special Guest Christyle Bacon.

Milkshake. Great Day

Buck Howdy. Pete Seeger Tribute - Ageless Kids' Songs

Greg & Steve. Jumpin' & Jammin'

Best Spoken Word Album for Children 2010
Buck Howdy
Aaaaah! Spooky, Scary Stories & Songs
So load up the I-POD's and try some new work out music! With the ear buds in, who is going to know. But really, who cares!

The Ziggy Marley CD is great! I've used some of the songs off of it in storytimes and it's a hit, especially the song "Ziggy Says". A great CD to listen to with the kids or just on your own. Can't say enough good things about it!

Thanks Wooby. I use "unconventional" children's music in my programs as well. It keeps the parents interested and gives chidlren a taste of "real" music.
