(Gibson) The 32nd Annual Blues Music Awards will start with bang—or at least, a bingo—this year, as it has just been announced that the Steve Miller Band will open the festivities on May 5. Miller's latest album, Bingo!, garnered the Space Cowboy his first-ever BMA nomination this year.

Miller is no stranger to the blues, having cut his teeth as a sideman on Chicago's famous blues scene, playing alongside the likes of Howlin' Wolf and Muddy Waters.

Also appearing at the awards, as a presenter, will be actor Jason Lee, star of the TNT show, Memphis Beat. Lee himself closes many episodes of the show performing blues songs and Elvis covers live on stage. BMA winner Keb' Mo' arranges and performs much of the program's music. The show also features Steve Cropper playing guitar on the theme song. more on this story
