Loudon won his Grammy for Best Traditional Folk Album in 2010 for his album “High Wide & Handsome: The Charlie Poole Project.” Previously, he had been nominated twice for his albums “I'm Alright” in 1985 and” More Love Songs” in 1986. His songs have been covered by a range of artists, including Johnny Cash, Bonnie Raitt, and his son, Rufus Wainwright.
