Mavis Staples is making great music and her work is still getting recognized. Last week, the legendary singer receives a Grammy nomination for her second Gospel album, One True Vine.
Although it is a gospel album, Mavis Staples received her nomination in the Best Americana Album category. Given her and the Staples Singers folksy style, the category is probably appropriate.
One True Vine (click to purchase) shot straight to #2 on the Billboard Gospel chart and reached #67 on Billboard 200 when it debuted earlier this year.
