The Derek Trucks Band Wins Grammy Award for 'Best Contemporary Blues Album' for Already Free

Sony Music Entertainment - 02/05/2010

THE DEREK TRUCKS BAND celebrates their first Grammy win taking home a 2010 award for "Best Contemporary Blues Album" for their latest release, ALREADY FREE.

ALREADY FREE, praised by Rolling Stone Magazine as their "most accessible blues-rock set to date," is one of the band's most successful efforts. Released last January, the band broke a personal record when the album debuted at #19 on Billboard's Top 200 Chart, DTB's highest career debut. It also debuted at #1 on the Internet Chart, #4 on the Rock Chart and #1 on the Blues chart.

After touring non-stop around the world for 16 years, DTB announced in November that they are taking a hiatus for 2010. To commemorate their 2009 Tour, Sony Masterworks will release a live CD in the Spring from the Already Free tour. This will be their first full-length live album since 2004's Live At Georgia Theatre.
