Paolo Nutini not up for awards
Paolo Nutini claims he doesn't make music to win awards.
The Scottish singer - whose second album, 'Sunny Side Up' went straight to the top of the charts when it was released last June and returned to the number one slot twice this year - has been nominated for a BRIT but he says the awards aren't really that important to him.
He said: "It's nice to get the nominations, but I don't write songs to win awards. I'll enjoy myself at the BRITs, and if I win something, all the better."
The 23-year-old Scot - who is also nominated for best British male alongside Dizzee Rascal, Calvin Harris, Mika and Robbie Williams - said he couldn't explain why his music had suddenly become so popular again.
He said: "I'm not sure why it's become such a big hit again. Maybe it didn't register with people at first."
If he doesn't win at the BRITs or continue with a successful music career, the singer joked he could always join the families chip shop business.
He said: "My parents never stood in my way. Dad gave me the impression that the shop would always be there for me to fall back on."Posted on 15 Feb 2010 10:30 to category : Music News
