The Lumineers Make Grammy Debut

(Radio.com) Nominated for Best New Artist and Best Americana Album, this was the first time the Denver, CO threesome The Lumineers have graced the stage at the Grammys. Along with Mumford & Sons, The Lumineers are seen as the leaders in the folk-rock revival, having sold more than half a million copies of their self-titled debut album.

Accompanied by two additional full-time members, Stelth Ulvang on piano and Ben Wahamaki on bass, the band performed a spirited version of "Ho Hey," the band's double-platinum single. As the five bandmates stood on a stage as bare as their music, Melissa Ethridge and Taylor Swift belted out the chorus from the front row of the audience.

Speaking before Bonnie Raitt took the Best Americana Album Grammy and fun., who stole Best New Artist, the band joked about their chances of winning. "We have no shot. We're smoked," joked drummer Jeremiah Fraites. "fun. has an eighth of a billion views on YouTube so they'll probably win."

"I'm glad there's a space for a band like us because maybe a couple of years ago there might not have been," added Schultz. more on this story
