Epiphone was front and center at the 56th annual GRAMMY awards Sunday night and a big congrats to our own Gary Clark Jr. who won for Best Traditional R&B Performance for his debut Warner Brothers album, Blak and Blu. You can watch Clark receive his award on the GRAMMY website
We especially dug Clark's surprise appearance with Keith Urban which tore the house down. Clark played his now- trademark Blak and Blu Epiphone Casino
and nonchalantly stole the spotlight from the country guitar hero on his own song, "Cop Car," by playing a mirror image of Urban’s solo but with a sense of emotion, drama, and melody. And Urban knew it, too, as he good-naturedly punched Clark in the arm after the solo, no doubt his way of saying, 'You just burned me on national television.'
Paul and Ringo played together again in celebration of The Beatles' debut on the Ed Sullivan Show 50 years ago and Mr. McCartney received three GRAMMY awards including best boxed set for Wings Over America and Best Rock Song for “Cut Me Some Slack,” recorded with the surviving members of Nirvana. Vampire Weekend also won a GRAMMY for Best Altnernative Album. What can we say? 2013 was Epiphone's year, just like 2014 will be, too. Congrats to all of our winners and look for more highlights soon. And read our exclusive interview
