Arkansans Do Well at Grammys

FEBRUARY 9, 2004 - Posted at 7:28 a.m. CDT

 

LOS ANGELES, CA - Arkansas-based rock band Evanescence won two Grammy awards last night, just one of a handful of Arkansas artists to be honored at the Los Angeles music ceremonies.

Evanescence was nominated for five awards and brought home the coveted best new artist prize along with best hard rock performance for the song "Bring Me To Life."

Lead singer Amy Lee and band member Ben Moody started Evanescence out of Little Rock after meeting at an Arkansas summer camp when they were in school.  The duo started writing songs together soon afterward and played locally before they became popular worldwide.

Another Arkansas native scoring a Grammy last night was former President Bill Clinton, who along with Mikhail Gorbachev and Sophia Loren won the award for Spoken Word Album for Children.

Also winning was the late Johnny Cash for best short form music video for "Hurt."  Cash was raised and grew up at Dyess in Mississippi County.  He died last year.  His son accepted the award for his father.
