The Recording AcademyÂ® Statement Re: Andy Griffith
July 3, 2012
GRAMMYÂ® winner Andy Griffith was an American television icon bringing beloved characters into family homes for more than 50 years with shows such as â€œThe Andy Griffith Showâ€ and â€œMatlock.â€ In addition to acting, Griffith had a passion for music and recorded a number of albums, including I Love To Tell The Story â€” 25 Timeless Hymns, which garnered him a GRAMMY Award for Best Southern Gospel, Country Gospel Or Bluegrass Gospel Album. He was an immense talent and a true gift to the entertainment industry and will be greatly missed. We extend our deepest sympathies to his family, friends and fans.
