Carlile Wins 3 Grammys And Audience Heart

Maple Valley's Brandi Carlile won 3 Grammys in categories presented before the national telecast of the awards last night and  delivered, once again, a stirring performance of "The Joke" her anthem of hope to society's marginalized.
Carlile's performance, perhaps in front of her largest audience ever, rocked  the auditorium and lit up Twitter.
Carlile had been nominated in 6 categories, her wins were for Best Americana Album, best American Roots song, and best American roots performance. Her losses were in Record Of The Year, Song Of The Year, and Album Of The Year.  Her nominations alone in those categories were a major victory in her long career. 
Carlile had just one nomination previous to this year's ceremony.  This was her first Grammy performance.
