Saturday Night Black Keys Live

(Gibson) The Black Keys have had a killer 2010. The blues-rock duo released their new album, Brothers, to much acclaim, including multiple appearances on year-end lists and a handful of Grammy nominations. And it looks like Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney are going to continue that success in the new year.

It has been announced that the band will play Saturday Night Live's first episode of 2011. The January 8 edition will be hosted by funnyman Jim Carrey. The following month, The Black Keys will find out the fate of their Grammy nominations, when the awards ceremony is telecast from Los Angeles on February 13.

Guitarist Auerbach and drummer Carney recently moved from Ohio to Nashville, which Auerbach talked about with the Associated Press: "Every time I'd go [to Nashville] I'd see some guitar player that would blow my mind," he said. "[I'd] go see The Don Kelley Band and that guy consistently has just the most amazing guitar player playing with him. That's always fun. And then the Station Inn to see bluegrass. I mean I was raised on bluegrass music. So that's just always a thrill for me."
