U2 and Alison Krauss Clean Up At The Grammys

I'm not a big awards show fan - but I am a U2 fan, so here's a bit of news.

U2 picked up five Grammys last night, winning Album of the Year (How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb), Best Rock Album (How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb), Song of the Year ("Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own"), Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group With Vocal ("Sometimes You Can't Male It On Your Own"), and Best Rock Song ("City Of Blinding Lights"). (Full list of winners is here.)

Another favorite of mine,
Alison Krauss and Union Station, was the other big winner, picking up three Grammys including Best Country Album (Lonely Runs Both Ways), Best Country Instrumental Performance ("Unionhouse Branch"), and Best Country Performance by a Duo with Vocal or Group (“Restless”).
