Mavis Staples Gets Grammy Nod For Second Gospel Album

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.
