Mumford & Sons Named Billboard Top Rock Artist of 2011! ]

The Best New Artist Grammy nominee has attained a level of success unparalleled within modern folk-rock, with 1.96 million copies of “Sigh No More” sold stateside (according to Nielsen SoundScan) and a Grammy gig alongside the godfather of the genre, Bob Dylan. The success of “The Cave” should not be forgotten, either: the single comes in at No. 5 and No. 4, respectively, on our year-end tally of the Rock Songs and Alternative Songs charts…
