Brothers Can You Spare A Song

It's ultra-hot news that The Avett Brothers will be performing alongside Bob Dylan and Mumford & Sons at the 53rd Grammy Awards this Sunday, February 13th. Tune in to CBS at 8/7c to watch this special performance.

There is no harmony like brotherly harmony. Something indelible in the weave of voices and play of sensibilities is stamped into the fraternal DNA and also stems from a lifetime of shared experiences. You can hear it in classic brother acts across the musical spectrum, from the Louvin Brothers to the Everly Brothers and on down the decades through the Wilson brothers (Beach Boys), the Davies brothers (Kinks), the Allman Brothers and even the Brothers Gibb (a.k.a., the Bee Gees). You can clearly hear fraternal magic at work in the songs of Scott and Seth Avett, better known as the Avett Brothers, as well.

And in spite of all the screaming and pleading and rallying there are no Grammy nods for The Avett Brothers this year. Two of the year's more acclaimed albums, Jay-Z's "Blueprint 3" and the Avett Brothers' "I and Love and You" were ineligible, because of their fall release dates. So goes the way of the organized tabluations of Ernst and Young or was it the 13th astorlogical sign that appeared. Whatever it was, it was wrong. But the bros don't need a Grammy to keep building their fan base. Keep your eye on their sales and listen for more of their tunes.
