LSU fans are riding high these days, and for good reason. Your LSU Tigers are positioning themselves for a shot at the College Football Playoffs.
However, that’s not what we’re celebrating in this article, believe it or not, we’re focusing on the band at the football games, not the players or the team. The LSU Golden Band from Tigerland has achieved a great feat this week, and we believe they deserve just as much praise for their accomplishment as the team we all know and love.
This week, the LSU Golden Band received a Grammy nomination for their collaboration with Lake Charles musician Sean Ardoin.
Ardoin’s album Full Circle received a nomination for Best Regional Roots Music Album on Tuesday and to say he’s excited is an understatement.
“Man, I can’t even express to you in words, how excited I am, that my alma mater, my former band, I was in the Tiger Band, is now Grammy nominated. I’m on top of the world right now,” said Ardoin.
Ardoin’s album is also historic because it is the very first full album featuring a music artist collaborting with a collegiate marching band.
The 2023 Grammy’s will be revealed on Sunday, February 5th.
