A win certainly would have been nice at Wednesday’s (February 27) Grammys, but Stevie Nicks likely isn’t all that upset that she lost. Lucinda Williams won best female rock vocal performance, coming out ahead of Tori Amos, Melissa Etheridge, P.J. Harvey, and Nicks, who has never taken home a Grammy for her solo work.

Nicks told LAUNCH when she was nominated that she takes the bigger view–the nomination itself is really validation for her work, and it means that people still care enough about her art for her to continue creating it. “Well, it means you can still work, you know, and that’s the great thing,” she said. “Because if I didn’t do this, what would I do, you know? This is my job, this is my life, so the fact that I can still work and do this is terrific.”

Nicks and her Fleetwood Mac bandmates — drummer Mick Fleetwood, bassist John McVie, and singer-guitarist Lindsey Buckingham — are readying a new studio album for release later this year, and they will support the set with a full tour.
