The Black Keys Win Multiple Honors at 2013 Grammy Awards
The Black Keys were the big winners of the 2013 Grammy Awards, taking home three trophies (plus one for frontman/producer Dan Auerbach) and performing a memorable version of ‘Lonely Boy’ with Dr. John and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band.
The duo of Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney got a good jump on the night during the Grammys pre-telecast ceremony. Toward the end of the event, they won back-to-back honors, taking home the Best Rock Song for ‘Lonely Boy’ and following that with the Best Rock Album for ‘El Camino.’
Frontman Dan Auerbach then received the final award of the pre-telecast, winning for Producer of the Year, Non-Classical. In addition to helming the Black Keys record, Auerbach also oversaw discs for Dr. John and Hacienda. Dr. John’s ‘Locked Down’ also won for Best Blues Album.
During the show itself, the Black Keys added Best Rock Performance for ‘Lonely Boy,’ but missed out on the Record of the Year trophy to Gotye‘s ‘Somebody That I Used to Know’ and Album of the Year to Mumford & Sons‘ ‘Babel.’
