More Grammy News

I knew there would be more than one Westport connection to last night’s Grammy Awards.

In addition to Daniel Tashian’s part in Kasey Musgraves’ Album of the Year, Staples High School grad Justin Paul picked up his 2nd Grammy. He and his songwriting partner Benj Pasek were honored for “The Greatest Showman” — named Best Compilation Soundtrack for Visual Media.

Pasek and Paul are great showmen — and songwriters — for sure. They will pick up many more Grammys (and other honors) for years to come.

    Also- staples grad (1963) Barry Tashian and his wife, Holly, Staples grad also – their son, Daniel, produced and wrote( and played ) on the Kasey Chambers album of the year .
    Barry and Holly live in Nashville. They both still play together, and Barry plays in The Remains, who opened for the Beatles tour in 1966. Barry is also a songwriter, and was in Emmy Lou’s Hot band all through the 80s.

    • Looks like you missed the first line in the second paragraph of this story — and the original one (there’s a link to that story in this one too). It was all explained this morning, Lucy!
