Ten years ago at The Grammys, Damon Scott asked John Legend to share his bucket list.  Among the things on John’s list per Damon?  Win nine Grammys, refine smooth, and marry a supermodel.  John Legend has done all of these things.  So what’s on his list now?  To win TEN Grammys.

When Damon joked about not having enough room for so many golden gramophones, John replied, “You just make room, man!  They don’t get old either.  I’m honored every single time.”

John draws his inspiration from his wife, Chrissy Teigen.  The newlyweds were married last September in Italy. “So what was harder,”  Damon asked, “Winning nine Grammys or finding the love of your life?”  John, exuding his classic confidence, simply says, “Well, I wouldn’t say either one was that hard because they were both fun.  The process was fun.”

You can check out John Legend–who Damon deems “aptly named as he is truly legendary”– in Hartford on February 15th at the Bushnell.
