LOS ANGELES, CA: Blues Trail Marker for “Mississippi Blues & Grammy Awards”

Mississippi blues, country, gospel, soul and rock ‘n’ roll artists are at the center of American popular music and that legacy is apparent in the number of Mississippians who have been recognized by The Recording Academy® with GRAMMY® Awards, GRAMMY Hall Of Fame inductions and Lifetime Achievement Awards. On Thursday, February 10, this year’s “Mississippi Music Celebration at the GRAMMY Museum” at L.A. Live in downtown Los Angeles will celebrate that unparalleled musical legacy and specifically honor Mississippi’s pivotal role in the establishment of blues music and that genre’s influence across the music industry. The event is part of GRAMMY Week, a preamble to the GRAMMY Awards ceremony scheduled on Sunday, February 13.

On February 10 at 5 p.m., a Mississippi Blues Trail Marker will be unveiled at the GRAMMY Museum and L.A. Live sidewalk.
