Oklahoma singer-songwriter John Fullbright, 24, just picked up a Grammy nomination for Best Americana Album for his CD "From the Ground Up."

Critics have compared him to Randy Newman, Townes Van Zandt and Leon Russell, for his blend of folk blues, gospel and Americana rock.

Musician Jimmy Webb says of his fellow Oklahoman: “I have no doubt that in a very short time John Fullbright will be a household name in American music.”

We revisit a conversation we had with Fullbright when he visited our studios last May.
