Bernie Williams received a Latin Grammy nomination for Best Instrumental Album for Moving Forward.
The album’s first single, Go For It, recently topped Billboard’s “Smooth Jazz Songs” chart As the top jazz song in the country.
This from Bernie’s label:
“I don’t have many words right now that can explain how excited and grateful I am about this nomination. When I stopped playing baseball, I knew that I would become more dedicated to my music,” Bernie said. “Just to have the chance to sign with Reform Records and create this CD was a tremendous opportunity. Now, to already have my first Latin Grammy nomination from my fellow musicians is beyond anything I could have dreamed. Last year I was able to attend the Latin Grammy Awards just as a music fan. I’m elated that this year I can return as part of such an illustrious group of nominee.”
Meanwhile, Bernie still has yet to admit he has retired from baseball. But that’s another story.
