BMI songwriter Jesse Harris and his band The Ferdinandos recently headlined a spectacular show at New York's famous Bottom Line. Harris, who penned the Norah Jones hit "Don't Know Why," earned his first Grammy Award at the 45th annual ceremony held in New York City on February 23. The song, from the 23-year-old jazz-pop vocalist's multi-platinum debut album, Come Away With Me, earned the Song of the Year trophy for Harris.
