Prill song on Grammy-nominated CD

Singer/songwriter Johnny Prill was thrilled when he was notified that Jimmy Sturr & His Orchestra’s new CD “Not Just Another Polka”, which includes Prill’s composition "Polish Prince," had been nominated for a Grammy. Now, Prill is looking forward to the 54th Annual Grammy Awards on Feb. 12, to see if his song will be part of a Grammy award winning CD. Sturr's CD was nominated in the Best Regional Roots Album category. The Grammys will be broadcast live at 8 p.m. on CBS.

Prill's song was written about “The Polish Prince -Bobby Vinton” and based on his 1978 autobiography.

"I was excited to talk to Sturr and be a part of the CD, and now to have it nominated for a Grammy is what every songwriter hopes for. Vinton and I go back quite a few years,” Prill said.
