* The New York Times reports that "The televised concert to announce nominees for the Grammy Awards will be held in Nashville this year, in a nod to the power of country music within the music industry." The power of country music! The show, titled The Grammy Nominations Concert Live but with a bunch of exclamation points at the end, will be broadcast via CBS from Bridgestone Arena on Dec. 5. No word on who's performing yet. The 55th annual Grammys themselves will take place on Feb. 10, 2013, in Los Angeles.
* OK, just for a second, pretend you didn't read the headline at the top of this post. Ready to find out who will be performing every single Titans home game at LP Field this season?! Are you pumped?! Drum roll! It's ... Phil Vassar. WKRN reports that "Vassar joined Titans' Vice President Don MacLachlan for the announcement on the new concert stage at LP Field." The new stage is part of "a multi-million dollar improvement" project that went down in the off season — there are new high-def LED screens and all sorts of jazz. But the real news here is obviously that every Titans home game will now be just another day in paradise.
