"I am just pleased to be included in the entry list again this year.Granted my chances are more than slim as I am an independent musician with no record label backing me and I am pretty much unknown, however, to me at least, my music is as valid as anyone else's" Denis mentions.
Denis has been included in the Grammy entry list 9 times before in the 44th-54th Grammy awards. This year will make his 10th year on the Grammy entry list from which the top 5 in each category become Grammy nominees.
