Artist of the day: The Battersby Duo
It's Leap Day! So let's celebrate something you really don't see every day: A Tampa Bay artist winning a Grammy Award.
That's right. The Battersby Duo, a.k.a. Tim and Laura Battersby of Brooksville, won a Grammy for their song I Know a Kid, which was part of the the compilation album All About Bullies ... Big And Small, which won the Grammy for Best Children's Album.
The Battersbys aren't strangers to the Grammy scene. Last year, their album Sunny Days received a nomination for Best Children's Album. The couple flew to the awards ceremony in Los Angeles and even got a chance to hobnob with music stars such as Whitney Houston and Ringo Starr.
