The 10th Annual Grammys on the Hill

Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) and Pat Collins
Vice President Joe Biden, along with Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) were given awards Wednesday evening at the 10th annual Grammys on the Hill ceremony. The Eagles' Don Henley was also awarded the inaugural Recording Artists Coalition award.

"I think all Republicans, Democrats and Independents stand together in wanting musicians to be paid for their life's work," Corker said in his acceptance speech.

Reps. Joe Crowley (D-N.Y.), Linda Sanchez (D-Calif.), Ted Deutch (D-Fla.) and Tom Rooney (R-Fla.) all recorded a song at Sirius XM studios with producers who work with musicians like Guns N'Roses, LeAnn Rimes and Raheem Davaughn. The track was debuted at the event, prompting both applause and laughter.

The show celebrating music brought out Motown legend Stevie Wonder, Bob Crawford of the Avett Brothers and musicians Dave Koz and Bruce Hornsby.
