"Down in New Orleans" from ‘The Princess and the Frog’-Also Nominated For Best Song Written for Motion Picture NOMINATED FOR BEST SONG WRITTEN FOR MOTION PICTURE
Following a GRAMMY win for his last album City That Care Forgot, Dr. John is once again nominated in the Best Contemporary Blues Album category for his "career-defining" (AMG) new record, Tribal. In addition, his rendition of Randy Newman’s "Down in New Orleans" is nominated for Best Song Written for Motion Picture, Television or Other Visual Media.
A 2011 nominee for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Dr. John is no stranger to the GRAMMY Awards; he’s already won five in his illustrious career.
Tribal is his funkiest, swampiest record since his iconic 1968 album, Gris Gris, and the reviews have been nothing short of spectacular. According to the NY Times, "Dr. John sounds much the same as in his wily youth, singing in a drawling croak and playing piano and organ with a principal stake in rhythm," and Entertainment Weekly raved that "Dr. John and the Lower 911 still make mystique-dripping grooves sound easy."
