After extensive treatments for his vocal problems—and a two-year hiatus—Mayer began performing as a singer again in January 2013, and that year released the album, Paradise Valley.
After having several controversial incidents with the media, Mayer withdrew from public life in 2010 and began work on a follow-up album, called Born and Raised, that would draw inspiration from the 1970s pop music of Laurel Canyon.
However, the discovery of a granuloma on his vocal cords delayed the release of the album until May 2012, and ultimately forced him to cancel the planned tour.
That album was followed by Battle Studies in 2009, a return to pop, with a number-one grossing tour.On February 9, 2009, Mayer told Ellen De Generes that he thought he should not have won the Grammy for Song of the year because he thought that Alicia Keys' "If I Ain't Got You" was the better song.Because of this, he removed the top half of the Grammy and gave it to Keys, and kept the bottom part for himself.The album is named for where he lives in Montana and features country music influences.By 2014, he had sold a total of over 20 million albums worldwide.
