The Black Keys have won Best Rock Performance at the 2013 Grammys for ‘Lonely Boy,’ adding another trophy to their impressive haul. Earlier in the night, the band won for Best Rock Album (‘El Camino’) and Record of the Year (‘Lonely Boy).’

Dave Grohl handed the Keys their Best Rock Perfmance hardware, which saw them beat out Alabama Shakes’ ‘Hold On’,’ Coldplay’s ‘Charlie Brown,’ Mumford and Sons’ ‘I Will Wait’ and Bruce Springsteen’s ‘We Take Care Of Our Own.’

During his acceptance speech, Black Keys singer-guitarist Dan Auerbach — who also won the 2013 Grammy for Producer of the Year — named a laundry list of professional contacts, including their management at Q Prime, before thanking the two cities the band is most associated with: their original Midwestern hometown and their adopted one down South:

“[Thanks to] everybody in Akron, Ohio, and everybody in Nashville, Tenn.,” he raved, with a big smile on his face.
