(LEX 18) — Kentuckian Tyler Childers did not walk away with a Grammy last night, but everyone in the Bluegrass was proud of the artist.

Richmond's Apollo Pizza posted a photo of Childers in his earlier days, playing a gig in their parking lot in July of 2016.

"Play songs in our parking lot and maybe you too will go to the Grammys three and a half years later," reads a post by the popular joint.

They also added an asterisk, stating "results may vary."

Childers was nominated for Best Country Solo Performance. Childers was nominated for his song, “All Your'n.” The award went to Willie Nelson's “Ride Me Back Home.”
