Zac Brown will help pay tribute to the late Levon Helm during a special performance at Sunday’s Grammy Awards.
The Atlanta country king will be joined by sometimes-resident Elton John, Brittany Howard of Alabama Shakes, Mumford & Sons and Mavis Staples for the musical homage. T Bone Burnett will serve as musical director of the In Memorium segment.
Also, Atlanta R&B singer Ne-Yo, up for Best Dance Recording with Calvin Harris (“Let’s Go”), has been added to the list of presenters.
The 55th Grammys air Sunday from 8-11:30 p.m. on CBS.
I’ll be in L.A. this weekend to bring you behind-the-scenes tidbits from Atlanta’s nominees, other industry events and on Sunday, the Grammys themselves. But in the meantime, check out our Grammy page and take our quiz to test your Grammy knowledge.
