Shelton's "Mine Would Be You" and Miranda Lambert's "Mama's Broken Heart" are both nominated for best country solo performance, doubling his chances of nabbing a golden gramophone in his home.

The designer explains the inspiration behind his Hendrix collection
By Julianne Escobedo Shepherd
Of all the legacies Jimi Hendrix has left us, one slightly-less-feted is that of his style: his flowing shirts and psychedelic prints have been part of music culture for decades, most recently revisited by rappers like Trinidad James, Wiz Khalifa and Andre 3000. (The latter even plays Hendrix in the 2013 film All Is By My Side.)

She's not like other people': Grammy-nominated teen Lorde makes mark with originality
NEW YORK (AP) — Lorde may never be a royal, but these days, she's living like one.

By Steve Knopper
The legal battle between the Beastie Boys and GoldieBlox, the toy startup that used the New York hip-hop trio's song "Girls" for a commercial without permission, intensified Tuesday. In suing the company for copyright infringement in U.S. District Court, the band's lawyers allege GoldieBlox acted "willfully, maliciously and oppressively with a willful disregard of the harm that would be suffered by the Beastie Boys parties." Those words are used about the ad, which shifts the context of a misogynist old-school rap song to a group of small, pink-loving girls who build an elaborate Rube Goldberg machine out of toys.
Arcade Fire, Daft Punk, Jay Z and more used unusual methods to get the word out about their new LPs

At the beginning of 2013, Daft Punk had been silent, aside from one middling Disney soundtrack, for six years. In human or robot years, that's a solid amount of time. In pop years, it's a generation. Since monsieurs Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo turned off the lights on their highly successful Pyramid Tour of 2006-2007, dance music had exploded stateside in unprecedented ways – creating a culture that certainly seemed ready to welcome the duo's new "Random Access Memories." But why leave anything to chance?
