Sugarland Join Jason Aldean for Grammy Nomination Concert Lineup
Sugarland have joined Ludacris and Lupe Fiasco as the latest entertainers to be added to the performance lineup for the upcoming Grammy nomination live event. As you read on Taste of Country previously, Jason Aldean, Lady Gaga and LL Cool J will also perform during the live broadcast from 10-11PM ET on Wednesday, Nov. 30 on CBS.
This is just the latest performance for the Grammy Award-winning Sugarland in what surely is an emotion-laden fall season. Sugarland returned to Indiana late last month to play a free show in honor of the seven people who were killed and dozens more that were injured in August when the stage collapsed before a scheduled concert.
“Obviously we are here in October -- we were supposed to do this show in August. Obviously, the stage is different, you are different and we are different. We are all changed by what happened then,” Jennifer Nettles told the Indiana crowd, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. “But we are going to try to give you the best show that we can and to celebrate healing with you and to celebrate life and music with you here tonight.”
The upcoming Grammys concert at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles also promises not to disappoint. It marks the fourth time the Grammy nominations have been announced on primetime television. Last year’s Grammy Awards show received the highest ratings in a decade, so organizers are again marking the nominations with the primetime splash.
The 2012 Grammy Awards will be televised live starting at 8PM ET on Sunday, Feb. 12 on CBS.
