Carolina Chocolate Drops Sweeten the Grammy Ballot

One of the most energetic bands on the festival circuit today, Carolina Chocolate Drops are contenders for a Grammy next year, landing in the best folk album category for Leaving Eden. They’d probably fit equally well on the Americana or bluegrass ballot, as well. But what about country? Sure thing. After all, they released a charming music video this year for “Country Girl,” a catchy number that extols the virtues of Southern life. (This song always makes me hungry, by the way.)
