Mumford & Sons, Fun., Black Keys Win Big At Grammys

Mumford & Sons Grammy AwardsIf we can take anything away from the Grammys (aside from the fact that they really need to cut down on the running time; four hours is just way too long), it’s that America’s new-found love affair with roots and Americana isn’t stopping any time soon. The biggest award of the night went to folk titans Mumford & Sons for their album Babel. Elsewhere, Fun. scored some of the other big wins of the night, getting the Grammy for Song of the Year for “We Are Young” and the Best New Artist Grammy.

Other winners of the night include the Black Keys (Best Rock Album for El Camino and Best Rock Song for “Lonely Boy”), Gotye (Record of the Year for “Somebody That I Used To Know” and Best Alternative Album for Making Mirrors), Steep Canyon Rangers (Best Bluegrass Album for Nobody Knows You), Dr. John (Best Blues Album for Locked Down), and the unstoppable quartet of Yo-Yo Ma, Chris Thile, Stuart Duncan, and Edgar Meyer (Best Folk Album for The Goat Rodeo Sessions.) Surprisingly, while Mumford & Sons won the big award for the night, they ended up losing Best Americana Album to Bonnie Raitt for her album Slipstream.
