The Grammy Award for migliory albums folk contemporaneos
The Grammy Award for the best contemporary folk album was presented from 1987 to 2011. Until 1993, the prize was awarded for the best contemporary folk recording. In 2007 it was renamed Best Contemporary Folk/Americana Album. Since 2010 the category has been divided into two categories: Best Contemporary Folk Album and Best American Album.

The price will be abolished from 2012 for the fundamental revision of the Grammy categories. From 2012 this category will be transformed into the new category Best Folk Album with the Best Traditional Folk Album.
Dylan and Earle are the biggest winners in the category with three wins each.

Babycan IHoldYou is a song by American folk singer and songwriter Tracy Chapman, which was released in 1988 as the third single on the album Tracy Chapman. The song managed to reach the top 50 in the United States, but in contrast to the previous single'Talkin' bout A Revolution it stayed at 48th place.
Yet you will still remember the Baby Can I Keep You as one of the most important tracks in Tracy Chapman's career. Chapman later recorded a new version of the track, in duet with Luciano Pavarotti, on the album Pavarotti and Friends for Cambodia and Tibet 2001. "Babycan I Keep You" is the third singles of the contemporary folk musician Tracy Chapman, which was published at the end of 1988.
In contrast to its precursor "Talkin' bout a Revolution", the track entered its first fifty in the United States, but it did not manage to become Chapman's second fortieth song and finished 48th. However, it gave her a second chance to enter the US Adult Contemporary charts, reaching a high of 19 points in early 1989.
Her first contemporary adults hits were "Fast Car", which climbed to 7th place in the AC chart. Faced with the downturn commercially experienced by chapman after the publication of her second record Cutroads, "Baby Can I Keep You" also became her last top fifty hits until 1996's "Give Me One Reason". Noil Diamond took the track for his 1989 record The Best Years of Our Lives and became the first of many artists to record the track. 1] Thomas then re-recorded it as a duo with Luciano Pavarotti for the CD Pavarotti and Friends for Cambodia and Tibet.
It was also re-released as a singles to promote the Collection hit pack, which in 2001 came third in the UK.
