Alabama Shakes frontwoman Brittany Howard was almost, well … shaking. She and her bandmates had just nabbed the GRAMMY for Best Rock Performance, capping a night in which the band earned their very first GRAMMYs. Nervously explaining how the band got their modest start in high school, the jittery Howard paused and said, “Let me tell you — my heart is beating a mile a minute right now!”
It was a touching moment during a night that saw Alabama Shakes authoritatively dominate the Rock Field at the 58th Annual GRAMMY Awards show. In all, the Shakes earned three GRAMMYs, Best Alternative Music Album for Sound & Color and Best Rock Song and Best Rock Performance for “Don’t Wanna Fight.”
