Jimmy Carter has won a Grammy Award for his audiobook Faith: A Journey for All, marking the second Grammy win for the 39th president of the United States.
Carter will claim the award for Best Spoken Word Album at Sundays 2019 Grammy Awards. In his audiobook, the former president reflects on how faith has helped him during good times and bad.
At 94 years old, Carter will be the third-oldest winner in Grammy history. He follows comedian George Burns, who won a spoken word Grammy in 1991 at the age of 95, and blues musician Pinetop Perkins, who won the traditional blues album Grammy in 2011 at age 97.
Sundays awards ceremony will make Carter a two-time Grammy winner and a nine-time nominee. In 2016, Carter won the spoken word Grammy for his audiobook A Full Life: Reflections at Ninety.

Jimmy won a Grammy? Really????
Yes, and That was his second Grammy win.
Best spoken word?
Would that be “Jimmi”
I’m not the biggest fan of Jimmy Carter...but in his book he talks about how his Christian faith has sustained him though life. That’s a message worth telling. Good for you, Mr. Carter. And congratulations on the award.
Liberals giving liberals awards... t’hell with ‘em.
A totally political award.
Nope, nothing political about the Grammy awards at all.
How are recorded music sales going these days guys? Maybe it would help if you didn’t alienate half of your potential customer base?
I believe Jesus would approve of gay marriage, Carter said this week in an interview with HuffPost Live.
And he believes Jesus would approve abortion in the cases of rape and incest.
Carter told interviewer Marc Lamont Hill, I never have run across any really serious conflicts between my political obligations and my religious faith.
When Hill asked if Jesus Christ would support redefining marriage, Carter replied, I believe Jesus would. I dont have any verse in Scripture.
“I believe Jesus would approve gay marriage, but that’s just my own personal belief, the 39th president said.
“I think Jesus would encourage any sort of love affair that was honest and sincere, and was not damaging to anyone else, he added. And I dont think that gay marriage damages anyone else.”
Whether through the Bible, the Quran or the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Carter entreats his fellow citizens to draw on these visions of improved human interrelationships...to meet the challenges of the present moment.
Not sure the faith of Jimmy Carter is particularly Christian.
Sure but hes no Bill Shatner
His own mouth convicts him. You can rest assured that it isn’t.
That incident cost him the Courageous Sportsman of the Year award.
Carter is flawed in many ways. And that includes in his practice of Christianity. But he seems sincere. So in this regard he’s OK with me.
And what Christian is not flawed? I’d much rather see Carter get this award than some Islamist, or some Communist.
