Amy Winehouse Still a Possibility for the Grammys

February 4, 2008 1:18 PM ET

Troubled British singer Amy Winehouse briefly left rehab today to renew her visa with the intentions of appearing at this Sunday's Grammy Awards, Us Magazine reports. Winehouse might attend the awards on Sunday with a chaperone and return to rehab when she arrives back in the U.K. If she does attend, there's still no word on whether or not she will perform (as Mark Ronson hinted to Rock Daily a few weeks ago), but she is likely to win at least one of the six awards (including Album of the Year and Record of the Year) for which she has been nominated.

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
