Alabama Shakes frontman Brittany Howard has been robbed at gunpoint in Nashville.

The incident took place on Saturday night (December 15) after Howard had performed with her sideproject Thunderbitch at the Ghot Wingz venue.

Nashville Scene reports that Howard and friends were robbed whilst on the front porch of the home of Andrija Tokic, who owns Nashville recording studio, The Bomb Shelter.

Seth Riddle, manager of the Serpents and Snakes record label shared news of the incident with Nashville Scene, stating that two "skinny little" teenage males, who he estimated at being 15 or 16, went up to Howard and her friends with their guns drawn.

Riddle explained that the thieves made away with mobile phones and a "few dozen" dollars. Nobody was harmed during the incident.

Alabama Shakes recently revealed that they were asked to enter X Factor USA. The 'Hold On' band were approached by a researcher to appear on the US version of the popular television talent contest before they were signed to Rough Trade Records.

Howard told the Independent: "They heard of us through the internet and started sending me emails which kept going into my spam folder. One day she called me to ask and I told her, 'No, I'm not going to do that.' She was like, 'Are you sure about that?' and I said, 'Yeah, I'm sure. I have something going on now that I believe in and want to stick to.' She was shocked."
