Paul McCartney wins Grammy Award for Kisses On The Bottom

11.00pm, Sunday 10 February 2013 (1 year ago)

Paul McCartney won the Grammy award for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album, for his 2012 album Kisses On The Bottom.

McCartney beat fellow nominees Michael Bublé and Carole King at the 55th annual Grammy Awards. His 1973 album with Wings, Band On The Run, was also inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame.

The Deluxe Edition of Paul and Linda McCartney‘s 1971 album Ram, remastered and reissued in 2012, was nominated for two awards – Best Boxed or Special Limited Edition Package, and Best Historical Album – but failed to win either.

McCartney told BBC 6 Music he was surprised to win his 17th Grammy Award.

It came as a big shock to me to know there were 17 to tell you the truth. I don’t keep count, I suppose that’s somewhat flash – people know my figures better than I do.

I don’t think a lot of the best musicians in the world got Grammys, it only goes to select few, and so to be one of those for the 17th time is phenomenal.

A Beatles compilation released by Time-Life, The Beatles with Tony Sheridan – First Recordings: 50th Anniversary Edition, was also nominated in the Best Album Notes category, but lost out to a Ray Charles compilation.

I’m so happy that I want to give everyone ‘Kisses on the Bottom’… along with all our other Grammy winning and nominated albums. I’m so grateful to work with such amazing artists and one of the best teams in the business.
