Long time friend and client of Intrepid Artists,  Chubby Carrier and his Bayou Swamp Band WON Best Zydeco and Cajun Music Album for their recording Zydeco Junkie at the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards Sunday, February 13, in Los Angeles. Said Chubby, “I have so many feelings. I give my dad, Roy Carrier, all the props in the world for introducing me to this zydeco music. My mom and dad weren’t here to see me accept this award. I know I’m going to see them in Heaven. I know they’re looking down on me and they’re proud of their son. This is for Boozoo (Chavis), John Delafose, Clifton Chenier, Marcel Dugas, Fernest Arceneaux. These are the guys that went down the gravel road before there was a zydeco road. Plus, I’ve been around for a long time. I’ve been spreading the zydeco gospel all over the world.”

We at Intrepid could not be happier for Chubby and the guys. Rick Booth says, “Chubby, my friend, You have worked so hard for this and I could not think of a more deserving soul! Congratulations Buddy! You earned it!!! So very Proud of you!!!! All of us at Intrepid are proud of you!”
