On Thursday, May 11, 2017, The Blues Foundation announced the winners of the 38th Annual Blues Music Awards, the blues world's highest honors, at the Cook Convention Center in Memphis, Tennessee.
Soul and R&B singer Curtis Salgado, whose latest CD, The Beautiful Lowdown, was called "an essential gem" by Blues Music Magazine, received three awards: Soul Blues Album Of The Year for The Beautiful Lowdown, Song Of The Year for Walk A Mile In My Blues (written by David Duncan, Curtis Salgado and Mike Finnigan) and Soul Blues Male Artist of The Year.
Salgado won the 2010, 2012 and 2013 Blues Music Awards for Soul Blues Artist Of The Year. In 2013 he also won the coveted BMA for B.B. King Entertainer Of The Year, and took the statue for Soul Blues Album Of The Year for his Alligator debut, Soul Shot.
Salgado is currently recuperating from his March 2017 quadruple bypass surgery. Expecting a full recovery, he is working hard to begin singing again as soon as possible."All I want to do is get on stage," he says. That's where I belong."
