(AP) Brittany Howard of the Alabama Shakes is unharmed after being robbed at gunpoint over the weekend.


Nashville police say Howard and four others that included members of the Brooklyn-based band Clear Plastic Masks were robbed Sunday night in east Nashville by two unidentified teens wearing hoodies.


Howard and the Shakes are up for three Grammy Awards in February, including best new artist, after releasing their debut album Boys & Girls earlier this year. A spokeswoman says the 24-year-old singer from Athens, Ala., has no comment.


The thieves were both armed with handguns and stole cellphones and a small amount of cash, but didn't harm anyone before taking off. Some of the items were found a short time later at a nearby park.
