The front woman to the Grammy nominated band Alabama Shakes, Brittany Howard, was robbed and held and gunpoint after a show in Nashville, TN this week.
The singer also fronts a band called Thunder B**** and after the group played, the Nashville Scene reports that Howard and her fellow musicians were sitting on a front porch off a home owned by a local producer when they were approached by two male "skinny little" teenagers wearing hoodies.
The boys pulled guns on the group and demanded money from them, but ended up with "nothing more than a few dozen dollars and some cell phones."
Howard and her band the Alabama Shakes are up for three Grammy nominations, including Best New Artist and Best Rock Performance for their song Hold On.
