Paul McCartney wasn’t at the Grammys and didn’t win anything officially.
But he’s the surprise winner of the night. That’s because the producer of his new record, Greg Kurstin, won Producer of the Year.
Kurstin is one of a couple of producers including Ryan Tedder working with McCartney on his first new album in several years. I’m told the songs are “amazing” — as in maybe we’re amazed.
Kurstin is best known for working with Adele, writing her hit, “Hello,” and producing her zillion selling “25” album.
Tedder, of course, has written hits for everyone on the charts and fronts his own hit band, One Republic.
