The Recording Academy® Statement re: James Cotton March 16, 2017

James Cotton’s talent as a blues harmonica player was unmatched. While the Mississippi native was best known for his collaborations with Muddy Waters, he was also an accomplished singer/songwriter and fronted his own group called the James Cotton Blues Band. A 10-time GRAMMY® nominee, he earned the Best Traditional Blues Album GRAMMY for 1996 for his album Deep In The Blues. He was later inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame in 2006. Our deepest condolences go out to James' family, friends, and creative collaborators."
