Michigan Band Wins Grammy For Best Rock Album [Video]
The music tradition in Michigan runs deep, from the Motown era through The White Stripes and on to Eminem, Michigan has produced legends, and now the new kids on the scene pick up some hardware.
The Frankenmuth bred, and now Detroit based band Greta Van Fleet picked up the Grammy Sunday for the Best Rock Album.
Their second EP album "From The Fires" took the top honor, edging out rock mainstays like Ghost and Fall Out Boy.
The family oriented band (two of the members are brothers, another is a cousin) were also nominated for three other major awards, Rock Song Of The Year for 'Black Smoke Rising', Best Rock Performance for 'Highway Tune', and Best New Artist.
Those awards went to St. Vincent, the late Chris Cornell and Dua Lipa, in that order.
Since "From The Fires" release, the boys have released a full length album "Anthem of the Peaceful Army", and they are currently on tour outside of the US.
The boys have yet to make a statement about the win either on their web page or social media.
The Award was not presented on last night's TV presentation, but at an earlier ceremony in which the band awkwardly failed to show up to pick their trophy.
