News “We’re just a normal group of people who believe in writing and making something, and honestly, it was truly from a point of having fun,” lead singer/guitarist Brittany Howard told our oral history of the album. “It wasn’t to get famous or anything like that. We wanted to play gigs, that was our goal, but we didn’t have anywhere to gig.”Bassist Zac Cockrell, guitarist Heath Fogg and drummer Steve Johnson write together with Howard, and the band shared in their Best Rock Song win, at the 58th GRAMMY Awards for “Don’t Wanna Fight,” as songwriters, in addition to winning Best Rock Performance. Sound & Color also won Best Alternative Music Album that year.Alabama Shakes’ 2012 debut brought them 55th GRAMMY Awards nominations for Best New Artist and Best Rock Performance for the song “Hold On.” As a single, it remains their biggest hit so far, having reached No. 93 on Billboard’s Hot 100. The following year the band was nominated for Best Rock Performance again, for “Always Alright” from the soundtrack to Silver Linings Playbook. A truly admired band, their album sales suggest Alabama Shakes falls better into the category of classics-makers than hit-makers. Their debut reached No. 6 on the Billboard 200 in 2013 and Sound & Color reached No. 1 in 2015.Although Alabama Shakes hasn’t released an album since Sound & Color, their performance of “Joe (Live From Austin City Limits)” drew another Best Rock Performance nomination at the 59th GRAMMY Awards. Earlier this year at the 60th GRAMMY Awards, Alabama Shakes’ performance of “Killer Diller Blues” won Best American Roots Performance, the band’s fourth win. The song was originally recorded by Minnie Lawlers, and as for other artists participating in the Jack White and Bernard MacMahon 2017 project American Epic: The Sessions, all final recordings were made on an antique 1925 Western Electric direct-to-disc system.
