SESAC Congratulates our Grammy Award Winners!

Congratulations to Lady Antebellum, Angela Hunte, Swizz Beatz and El Güero Y Su Banda Centenario on their Grammy wins at the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.  Not only did SESAC affiliates take home some of the biggest trophies at the Awards, they also provided some of the evening’s best performances.  One of the undeniable highlights of the evening was an incendiary set by Mumford & Sons and The Avett Brothers.  The two acts performed individual sets before joining Dylan for an all-star rendition of the icon’s “Maggie’s Farm."  The collaboration received a extended standing ovation from the audience.  Also performing was Lady Antebellum and their dazzling medley of "American Honey" and "Need You Now."
