Marcia Ball has been keeping the blues alive in Austin for over thirty years. She joined us in Studio 1A with Recording Academy Texas Chapter Board Member Lisa Morales to discuss The Recording Academy’s (organization behind the annual GRAMMY Awards) Texas Chapter 25th Anniversary Gala at ACL Live on July 18.
The gala will bring together Recording Academy leaders, members, and music industry supporters to celebrate the rich history of Texas music across all genres. The event will include programming that is private to Recording Academy members but will also open to the public by 8 p.m. for performances by GRAMMY-winning and nominated Texas Chapter members such as Yolanda Adams, Asleep At The Wheel, Bun B, Marcia Ball, Hanson, and many, many more.
Listen to Marica’s session in Studio 1A to hear about her work with The Recording Academy’s Texas Chapter plus some classic Austin blues.
