Eagles Win First Grammy In 29 Years

The Eagles have clocked up their 5th ever Grammy Award and their first since 1979.

This year, the band won the Best Country Performance By A Duo Or Group for the single 'How Long' from the album, 'Long Road Out Of Eden'. The album was released after the closing date for nominations and won't qualify for a nomination until next year.

The last time they won a Grammy was in 1979 for 'Heartache Tonight'.

In a statement to Undercover, Don Henley said, "This Grammy win is particularly sweet because of the length of time that has passed since we (the Eagles) won our first Grammy in early 1976. I was 28 years old then. I'm 60 now. I always secretly hoped that we could pull off something like this, but I had almost given up. This win feels really good , and it's in a whole different field than we were in before. Now I'm thinking that we might have a good chance to win again next year because the entire album (Long Road Out of Eden) will be eligible then. This year, only the single, "How Long," came out in time to make the nomination process. We're all very grateful to the Academy members and to our loyal fans. It's been quite a ride and it apparently isn't over just yet."

To take home the award, the Eagles beat Brooks & Dunn 'Proud Of The House We Built', Emerson Drive 'Moments', Montgomery Gentry 'Lucky Man' and 'The Time Jumpers 'Sweet Memories'.

Previous Eagles Grammy wins were:

1975 Best Pop Vocal Performance By A Duo/Group for 'Lyin' Eyes'
1977 Record of the Year 'Hotel California'
1977 Best Vocal Arrangement for 'New Kid In Town'
1979 Best Rock Vocal Performance by a Duo/Group 'Heartache Tonight'
