In 2010, Trombone Shorty released his debut album, the Grammy-nominated “Backatown,” followed by “For True” in 2011, which topped Billboard magazine’s Contemporary Jazz Chart for 12 weeks.

 

In 2012, Trombone Shorty performed the National Anthem before the start of the NFL playoff game between the New York Giants and Atlanta Falcons and during the same year he performed at The White House as part of the Black History Month celebration.
