William Bell presents Bobby Rush with the Blues Award for Historical Album.

The great Bobby Rush just walked away with two Blues Music Awards last night from the BMAs in Memphis, TN.  Omnivore Records' boxed set, Chicken Heads: A 50-Year History of Bobby Rush, won Historical Album and his most recent release, Porcupine Meat, won Album of The Year.  For Chicken Heads,  74 tracks from various sources were gathered together, restored and remastered by Michael Graves here at Osiris Studio.  It was super funky.  Bobby Rush was on hand to accept the award along with producers Cheryl Pawelski, Cary Baker, and Jeff DeLia.  Congrats to all!
