Stupid Grammies...

In an astonishing example of rigged awards, both Audio Adrenaline's Until My Heart Caves In and Casting Crowns' Lifesong won in their categories (rock gospel album and pop/contemporary gospel album, respectively). The proof? Both albums were released on August 30! If that doesn't prove that the Grammies are rigged, I don't know what does.
Casting Crowns beat out Steven Curtis Chapman, Jars of Clay, Michael W. Smith, Third Day, and Out of Eden - a group that is fairly similar in sound and/or genre. Audio A, on the other hand, beat Day of Fire, The Cross Movement, Grits, and Winnipeg's Fresh I.E. (with his second nomination!). Is it just me, or are those last three not "rock," per se. Seriously, Grammies, either cut the "Christian"...oops, "Gospel" categories immediately, or do some serious revisiting of the idea. Oh, and some band named U2 from...umm...Ireland, I think...yeah, I'll say Ireland...won pretty much every award for which they were nominated. Really flew under the table and surprised everyone, they did.
