Tucsonan Linda Chorney was invited to the party but left without the ultimate door prize, a Grammy for Best Americana Album.

  Chorney, who splits her time between Tucson and New Jersey, lost out to Levon Helm's "Ramble at the Ryman." Other nominees in the category included Lucinda Williams, Ry Cooder and Emmylou Harris.

  Earlier today Chorney, 51, blogged on her website:

"My fingers are actually slightly shaky as I type this morning. I did get a good night's sleep, only because I am so exhausted from this week's activities. ... I have had a blast! And the blast will continue after today. Nothing has really changed. I am still me. (Although more of a basket case.)

"My music is my music. I am very proud of my album, "Emotional Jukebox". And once again, I am humbled by the kindness, support, and enthusiasm that has surrounded this passion project."
