| No Comments

The Minneapolis bluegrass duo the Okee Dokee brothers won a Grammy in the children's recording category on Sunday for their song "Can You Canoe?", news sources reported.

Joe Mailander and Justin Lansing, band members, wrote the song during a 30 day canoe trip they took down the Mississippi River, ABC news reported. This trip inspired all the songs on their album.

The duo thanked the Recording Academy for "recognizing indie-made children's music", and said the award fulfilled a dream the two had since they were children, according to the Star Tribune.
