MP3 Monday: LynnMarie and the Boxhounds

LynnMarie and Charlie Kelley as the BoxhoundsToday we’re featuring another Grammy-nominated track, this time from the polka side of the aisle. Although she’s been nominated five times for Best Polka Album — and was the first female nominee in that category — LynnMarie’s music stretches far beyond the boundaries of polka. Working with longtime collaborator, guitarist Charlie Kelley, Speechless is an instrumental record incorporating rock, country, Tex-Mex, and Cajun flavors. No matter what the style, though, LynnMarie’s bouncy button accordion is always at the center of the action.

Like so many other great artists in the polka category, she’s been continually thwarted in her Grammy quest by 17-time winner Jimmy Sturr. Will this be the year she breaks through?
