Chad has beaten me up on more than one occasion for being "grumpy" about the Grammy Awards and claiming no country fan cares. And, I do believe for a number of years that was correct. The NARAS voters always looked at country like you'd look at a piece of melted gum on your shoe, or boot. But, in recent years, the Grammys have treated Nashville like a well heeled (there's that foot reference again) cousin. So, now the coups de gras: according to Cory Stromfeld over at Taste of Country, "Music City’s status will certainly rise with the announcement that this year’s ‘Grammy Nominations Concert Live!! — Countdown to Music’s Biggest Night’ will be held in the home of country music. The stage will be aired on CBS on Dec. 5. from Bridgestone Arena, located in the heart of downtown Nashville".
