Although he did not win the gong, Wolfgang expressed his appreciation for the nod in a lavish tribute, praising Andraia and his mother.

“We came, we saw, but we did NOT win, and that’s okay! I had a wonderful night with the two most important women in my world,” he posted on Instagram, along with a photo of the three on the red carpet.
“Such an honor to be nominated for the first song I’ve ever released solo in a category that includes artists I’ve looked up to my entire life. I don’t know if that will ever fully materialize.
“Pop didn’t win when he was first nominated either, so it looks like I’m going to follow in his footsteps pretty well.
“Who knows what the future will bring. All I know is that I’m damn grateful. What a wild experience that was.
“You make my life better in every way”: Wolfgang also gave his loved one a radiant greeting for her birthday at the beginning of this year
“Thank you @recordingacademy for the recognition and thanks for the support. You all mean the world to me.”
Wolfgang also gave his beloved a glowing greeting earlier this year in honor of her birthday.
“Happy birthday to my beautiful lady @photosbydraia. You make my life better in every way just by existing. I love you more than anything,” he posted in March.
The happy engagement news comes almost two years after the death of Wolfgang’s father, Eddie Van Halen.

The legendary guitarist passed away in October 2020 at the age of 65 after suffering a stroke and a long battle with cancer.
Eddie Van Halen co-founded the California rock band Van Halen with his brother Alex Van Halen.
The band, with David Lee Roth on vocals and bassist Michael Anthony on bass, became one of the major recording and touring rock bands of the late 1970’s and 80’s, with songs like Unchained, Jump, Ain’t Talkin’ ’bout Love, Hot for Teachers and Running with The Devil.

Sammy Hagar took over vocals from 1985 to 1996, only to be eventually replaced by Roth.
Wolfgang would fill in for Anthony on bass in 2006, which would last until his father’s death in 2020.
Eddie Van Halen is widely regarded as one of the greatest and most innovative guitarists in rock ‘n’ roll history.
