Paul McCartney is shaping up to be a big winner in The 56th Annual Grammy Awards Jan. 26 as the Recording Academy just announced his “Live Kisses” video won for Best Music Film. The video, a live performance of songs from his “Kisses on the Bottom” film taped at the Capitol Records studios, beat out Coldplay's “Live 2012,” Green Day's “¡Cuatro!,” “I'm In, I'm Out and I'm Gone: The Making of Get Up!” by Ben Harper With Charlie Musselwhite and “The Road to Red Rocks” by Mumford & Sons.
The film, with musicians including Diana Krall and Joe Walsh performing, also won Best Surround Sound album over Primus' “Sailing the Seas of Cheese (Deluxe Edition)”, “Signature Sound Opus One,” Jane Ira Bloom's “Sixteen Sunsets” and Richard Scerbo & Inscape's “Sprung Rhythm.”
McCartney is still up for "Best Rock Song" with three former members of Nirvana for "Cut Me Some Slack" from "Sound City: Reel to Reel." He is also among the scheduled performers on “The 56th Annual Grammy Awards” telecast Sunday night. Fans are hoping that both he and Ringo Starr will perform together on the show. They will be performing together on “The Night That Changed America” to be taped Monday.
