Colorado represents! Big old fat props go out to Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic and Brian Joseph, who each won Grammy awards tonight for their contributions to albums by Adele and Bon Iver. The former earned a nod for Adele's 21, which, among other awards, won for Album of the Year. Joseph, meanwhile, a onetime member of Achille Lauro and a former member of the Fray's road crew, earned honors for the year's Best Alternative Album, Bon Iver's 2011 self-titled album, which he mixed and engineered. Congrats!
