Hard to imagine a prouder set of parents -- or city -- following the success of Akron's The Black Keys on the Grammy Awards Sunday night.
The duo of Patrick Carney and Dan Auerbach led the awards show with four of the gold-plated gramophones, including Best Rock song and Best Rock Performance for "Lonely Boy"; Best Rock Album for "El Camino" and Auerbach won Best Producer Non-Classical Category for "El Camino."
Auerbach thanked his and Carney's parents, Akron and Nashville when accepting the awards. The band is currently working on it's new album and after recording some of the tracks in Benton Harbor, Michigan will be completing work in Nashville.
Jim Carney is known locally as a long-time reporter for the Akron Beacon Journal but today's he's becoming better known as "Patrick's Dad." 97.5 WONE's Jeff Kinzbach talked with the proud papa post-Grammy Awards on the success of The Black Keys and how they stay true to their roots here in Akron.
