Alabama Shakes Win Four Grammy Awards

(The Blues) Alabama Shakes won four Grammys at Monday night's annual awards ceremony in Los Angeles. They took home Best Rock Song and Best Rock Performance for Don't Wanna Fight - which they played live during the ceremony - plus Best Alternative Music Album and Best Engineered Album (Non-classical) for Sound & Color.

Bandleader Brittany Howard admitted it had been a "crazy" night for the band, adding: "What an honor. We never even dreamed of this moment. When we started this we were in high school and we just did it for fun. We never thought we'd win any recognition like this. It's beautiful - and I promise we're going to keep going."

Buddy Guy received the Best Blues Album award for Born To Play Guitar while Mavis Staples' version of See That My Grave Is Kept Clean won Best American Roots Performance. Read more here.
