Since the demise of the short-lived "Best Cajun or Zydeco Music Album" Grammy Award category, nominees for those music genres were reverted back to the "Best Regional Roots Music Album" category beginning in 2012. Although there were several Cajun and Zydeco music artist nominees that year, a New Orleans jazz band won the Grammy.
