The 2012 Grammy Awards, like every year prior, were held to pay tribute to accredited artists of all genres at what is considered music’s biggest night.

Carrie Underwood and Aerosmith rocker Steven Tyler took the stage together in Indianapolis, Ind. on Saturday to deliver a few of their collective hits for anxious Super Bowl fans.

Blake Shelton got the full package on Thursday night’s episode of ‘The Tonight Show With Jay Leno.’ Not only did he perform his new single ‘Drink on It’ for the first time ever on television, but he got a chance to sit in as a guest on the show, making himself comfy in the gold chairs next to the famous desk as he dished on the upcoming Super Bowl, how married life is going and what romantic love story flick he hates to admit he watched.

As if you needed another reason to grab a bag of chips and tune into the Super Bowl, it was just announced that country music’s hottest couple Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert will be opening up the big game with a duet performance, making the game of the year even more worthwhile for country music fans.
Singer-songwriter Jason Isbell is mad at Dierks Bentley — really mad.
