GARY CLARK JR.: ROCK, R&B; AND A LITTLE BIT COUNTRY

Gary Clark Jr. says his roots are in rhythm and blues, but he’s nominated for a Grammy in that category as well as for best rock song.

“I grew up listening to R&B;,” he said on the red carpet several hours before the awards show. “To be nominated for that is pretty major.”

He’s up for an award for best traditional R&B; performance for “Please Come Home,” as well as scoring a nomination for best rock song for “Ain’t Messin’ Round.”

And viewers will see him perform in yet another genre, country music, when he jams during the telecast with Keith Urban.

“I didn’t realize how comfortable I was with all the country music,” Clark said. “Throw a little twang on the guitar and see what happens.”
