— Before leaving this week for tonight’s Grammy awards ceremony in Los Angeles, members of the Athens-based band Alabama Shakes decided to give back to their community.

The band members — Brittany Howard, Steve Johnson, Zac Cockrell, and Heath Fogg — autographed a Fender Stratocaster electric guitar that will be included in the 25th annual Hospice Chili Challenge and Silent Auction.
