Michigan Man Up For Grammy Tonight
The 58th annual Grammy Awards air tonight starting at 8pm on CBS. From the world of country music, you'll be able to watch performances from Little Big Town, Chris Stapleton, Carrie Underwood and Sam Hunt. Also, Luke Bryan will take part in the tribute to 2016 MusiCares Person of The Year, Lional Richie.
However, there's a local connection to tonight's show and some local people that we can root for. According to the Lansing State Journal, East Lansing producer/musician, Glenn Brown helped to engineer the latest release from bass player Marcus Miller. For the project, "Afrodeezia," Brown recorded trumpet solos, melodies and some percussion. Also, Michigan State University professor of jazz trumpet Etienne Charles played trumpet on the project, too. The album is up for Best Contemporary Instrumental Album tonight.
