Paul McCartney won the best traditional pop vocal album for "Kisses On The Bottom." The ex-Beatle won his 15th Grammy, but it was his first solo album to win the top honor in its category.

The Beach Boys, who reunited at last year's show and launched a tour to celebrate their 50th
anniversary, won their first-ever Grammy for "The Smile Sessions."
"The Smile Sessions" finally released recordings from the famously abandoned 1966-'67 sessions for the "Smile" album that was supposed to be the follow-up to Brian Wilson's masterpiece, "Pet Sounds."
"Pet Sounds" earned no Grammys in 1967. Brian Wilson won his first Grammy for a track on his updated version of "Smile," released in 2004.
