A Thursday Tune - Hunting with the Boys

Crisie Isbell of Jemison is anxiously awaiting the announcement of the 2022 Grammy Awards nominations to see if she made it past the first ballot round in any of her four categories. Recording Academy voting members submit suggestions for the first-round ballot, which are reviewed to make sure they are eligible before being voted on by Academy voting members in their areas of expertise. These votes are used to determine who receives a nomination. Award winners are determined by another round of voting by Academy members in their areas of expertise.

Isbell’s producer Frank Green is an Academy voting member and got her on the first-round ballot for Album of the Year for “Battle Scars,” Best American Roots Song for “My Last Soul,” Best American Roots Performance for “My Last Soul” and Song of the Year for the song “Battle Scars.”  Isbell said Green has worked with well-known artists in the industry and has been nominated for a Grammy in the past.  She said even being on the first-round ballot is “a dream come true.”   “Everything is just really surreal,” Isbell said.

Isbell bought a farm and moved to Jemison about five years ago.  “It is a really sweet place … It’s nice out here,” Isbell said.  In addition to music, Isbell enjoys also hunting. She used this as her inspiration for her song “Hunting with the Boys.”
She's also a professional Elvira impersonator. All in all, she looks like a ton of fun.
