46th Grammy Awards Spotlight BMI Stars

Posted in News on February 8, 2004

BMI songwriter/artists were once again at the top of the winners list for the 46th Annual Grammy Awards, held February 8 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Leading the BMI pack with three wins was Alison Krauss, who took home two statuettes with her band Union Station and one individual for Best Country Collaboration (with James Taylor).


The White Stripes

Goth-rock band Evanescence picked up two awards, including the coveted Best New Artist Grammy as well as Best Hard Rock Performance for their breakthrough hit, "Bring Me To Life." A pair of posthumous awards went to the late Warren Zevon, whose children accepted statuettes for Best Rock Performance by Duo or Group (with Bruce Springsteen) and Best Contemporary Folk Album for his final recording, The Wind.

Michael Brecker
