Congrats to Buddy on his Sixth Grammy

Yes, it's been a couple days since the Grammy's but we recently read an article about all the musicians in Chicago who won the prestigious award. With that in mind we wanted to give a quick shout-out to Buddy Guy who won his Sixth Grammy award:

Perennial honoree Buddy Guy snatched the contemporary blues album gramophone for "Living Proof," besting acclaimed titles by the late Solomon Burke, Dr. John, Bettye LaVette and Kenny Wayne Shepherd's "Live in Chicago" album.
We've posted our fair share of Buddy videos over the past couple of years, so we wanted to post a video of Chicago's own Mavis Staples, who also won a Grammy for her collaboration with Jeff Tweedy. She had a huge year and seemed to be everywhere. Whether it was the Daily Show's Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear or even Lollapalooza last year:
