This time as Tanya Tucker's songwriter. Chris Cornell also took home an award.

Brandi Carlile and Phil and Tim Hanseroth collaborated as songwriters on Tanya Tucker's "Bring My Flowers Now." 

Following last year's seven local Grammy wins, the awards show last night gave out a couple (or three, depending on how you count) more to projects with local ties. 

Brandi Carlile took home more honors—after last year's three—for her work with Tanya Tucker. Carlile and her longtime collaborators Phil and Tim Hanseroth shared songwriting credits with Tucker on "Bring My Flowers Now," which won Best Country Song. (Carlile accompanied Tucker on piano during a performance.) And, though the Grammy website lists only Tucker as the winner, Carlile and Shooter Jennings also produced Tucker's album While I'm Livin' and joined her on stage to accept the award for Best Country Album. 


Jeff Ament (Pearl Jam's bassist) and his brother Barry snagged an award for their art direction on the career tribute album to Soundgarden's frontman, Chris Cornell. Another Seattleite, Caspar Babypants, was also nominated for Best Children's Music Album for Flying High!, though did not take home a trophy.
