Alan Jackson Slated for Grammys

Though he is not nominated for a Grammy (and has never won a Grammy) Alan Jackson will appear on this year’s telecast, Feb. 27, to sing “Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning).” Jackson debuted his song Nov. 7 on the CMA awards show. Walter Miller produces both awards shows. Jackson joins a cast that already includes contributors to the O Brother, Where Art Thou? soundtrack: Emmylou Harris, Alison Krauss, Ralph Stanley, Gillian Welch and Dan Tyminski and Pat Enright (as the Soggy Bottom Boys). The Dixie Chicks, four-time Grammy winners, will appear as presenters. Also newly announced as performers: Train and, with Destiny’s Child, Latin Grammy winner Alejandro Sanz. The 44th Annual Grammy Awards will be broadcast by CBS from the Staples Center in Los Angeles. 02/11/02
