American Standard took home the Grammy for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album at last night’s Grammy Awards. The win makes James just the third artist in Grammy history to have won both the Pop Vocal Album (for 1997’s Hourglass) and Traditional Pop Vocal categories — quite a feat!

You might remember this song video of “Montana Blues” posted by James last Spring. One year later, James’s pals, Jimmy Johnson (bass) and Chad Wackerman (drums) sent over this version which pleased Ting the pug very much. Click below to watch their remote collaboration now!
James is featured in issue #47 of Fretboard Journal, the quarterly publication which celebrates all things guitar! An excerpt from the complete Brian K. Saunders interview can be read online at FretboardJournal.com.
