Millions of viewers watched Mumford & Sons perform with the Avett Brothers and Bob Dylan last night at the 2011 Grammy Awards on CBS.  The Grammy-nominees caught up with CMT.com before the weekend to discuss their big year and appearance at the Grammy's. During the interview, frontman Marcus Mumford mentioned that they modeled themselves after Old Crow Medicine Show. Check out what Mumford had to say about Old Crow below, and for the full interview on CMT.com, click here

"'They're truly inspirational in the way that conduct themselves and the way they see music,' Mumford said. 'For them, it's not a job. It's not a career. We feel like that, too, and having the opportunity to tour with them in Europe was sort of a dream come true for us. They never put their instruments down. They were always playing. We would be eating dinner and taking a rest, and they'd have these guitars that were always around, and they were just picking away in the corner and playing the whole time. That's the kind of attitude we aspire to maintain throughout our life as a band.'"
