She was also nominated this year for best American roots performance and best American roots song for “Wreck You,” and for best Americana album for “The Bird & The Rifle,” her 10th album.

Last week, residents in McKenna’s hometown of Stoughton told WBZ-TV that McKenna was just a “normal, everyday person, who made it big.”

“She is as normal and heartfelt a person as her songs are,” said Robert Tarchara, owner of the Stoughton Music Center, where McKenna is still a regular, and where some of her children took music lessons.

The Boston Symphony Orchestra also won a Grammy for best orchestral performance for Shostakovich: Under Stalin’s Shadow – Symphonies Nos. 5, 8 & 9.
