Blues Matters! 6 20 WATERMELON SLIM Following a near-fatal heart-attack, Watermelon Slim has gone on to become most of the most decorated Blues performers today, taking home awards such as Album Of The Year and Band Of The Year at the Blues Music Awards. “The two big ones! In the Oscars, that would be Best Actor and Best Picture! You don’t get any better than that! As far as professional awards and goals, that’s as high as I ever want to have. I also must mention that we won The BB. King International Art Award from The Maple Awards in Toronto also. I don’t care if I ever get any more.”
