Best Blues Artist 

Big George Brock

From the top of his broad-brimmed hat to the tips of his gleaming shoes, Big George Brock is most definitely a man of style. The 77-year-old's eye-catching outfits, imposing physical stature and outsize personality make him the focus of attention wherever he goes, even if his showmanship and energy onstage would be impressive even in a man half his age. As a musician, Brock is also a man of substance, for his blues are as authentic as you'll find anywhere. He specializes in a raucous, electrified blend of guitars, harmonica and drums that evokes both Mississippi juke joints and big-city barrooms, all topped off by his commanding vocals and scalding harmonica licks. Having recently released a live CD and provided the title song for the award-winning blues documentary M for Mississippi, Brock has now acquired a new touring vehicle: a plus-size van he's had decked out, in true old-school style, with a considerably larger-than-life-size portrait of himself. May Big George keep on rolling for many years to come.
