The president and CEO of Concord Music Group took a cue from the title of Paul McCartney's latest Grammy-winning album “Kisses on the Bottom” Monday to express his feelings over the label's success at the 55th Annual Grammy Awards Sunday night.
"I'm so happy that I want to give everyone ‘Kisses on the Bottom’...along with all our other Grammy winning and nominated albums,” said Concord Music Group president and CEO Glen Barros in a statement. “I'm so grateful to work with such amazing artists and one of the best teams in the business."
McCartney's album won the Grammy Award for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album, beating out Christmas releases by Michael Bublé and Carole King for the award. His "Band On The Run" album was also inducted into the Grammy Hall Of Fame.
The label itself won eight awards out of the company’s 26 nominations overall. One of those, “Best Album Notes” to Billy Vera for the Ray Charles compilation “Singular Genius: The Complete ABC Singles,” beat out a Time-Life Music compilation of the Beatles' recordings with singer Tony Sheridan.
For McCartney, Sunday's win brought his career Grammy Award total to 16. He was also nominated for two other awards for the deluxe reissue of “Ram,” but neither won.
