The Black Keys are the dominant rock band of the moment, if the GRAMMYS are to be believed. So far at tonight’s GRAMMY Awards, the band have won a pair of awards, while Dan Auerbach has won an additional one for Producer Of The Year (and one of the albums that he produced, Dr. John’s Locked Down, also won a GRAMMY).
Their song “Lonely Boy” won Best Rock Song, edging out songs by Jack White, Mumford & Sons, Muse and Bruce Springsteen. Meanwhile, their El Camino won Best Rock Album, beating out Springsteen, White, Muse and Coldplay.
The Black Keys are slated to perform at the televised version of the ceremony tonight, with Dr. John along with the Preservation Hall Jazz Band. The GRAMMY Awards air on CBS starting at 8 pm ET.
