The music industry celebrated their own last night at the the Grammy Awards, but there wasn't much love for Washington D.C. artists.

The only musician working in or near D.C. to take home an award was Christian rapper TobyMac. The ten-million-album-selling artist won Best Contemporary Christian Music Album for "Eye On It." He also won the Grammy Award for Best Rock or Rap Gospel Album in 2009 for "Alive and Transported."

Fritz Klaetke accepted the award for Best Boxed Or Special Limited Edition Package for "Woody at 100: The Woody Guthrie Centennial Collection."
