MAURA'S ALBUM "NAKED WITH FRIENDS" NOMINATED FOR GRAMMY AWARD

"Naked with Friends" has been nominated for a Grammy Award in the category "Best Traditional Folk Album"! The nominations are listed on the NARAS website here:

http://naras.org/grammy_awards/52nd_show/list.aspx#13

(Scroll down to category 68).

The Grammys will be awarded on January 31, 2010. This is Maura's second nomination for a Grammy Award. Maura is very excited by this honor, and expressed her thanks and congratulations to her co-producer, Gary Paczosa and to all the wonderful singers who helped make NAKED WITH FRIENDS such a beautiful record. Also, kudos are due to the great folks at Sugar Hill Records and Welk Music Group.

In a good omen for the upcoming Jerry Christmas Tour, John Oates is also nominated in the "Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group (with Vocals)" category. Dates for that tour, as well as other upcoming Maura shows are posted below.
