NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - This year's Grammy Awards nominations will come with a Southern accent.
The Recording Academy is moving its annual live nominations concert special to Nashville, Tenn. The special will air live Dec. 5 on CBS.
This is the fifth time the Recording Academy has held "The Grammy Nominations Concert Live," but the first outside Los Angeles.
Recording Academy President/CEO Neil Portnow says it made sense to look at Nashville for a number of reasons, including the city's prominence in the world music scene.
The Recording Academy will reveal nominees in several categories and feature performances by former Grammy winners and nominees.
The 55th annual Grammy Awards will be held Feb. 10 in Los Angeles.
