Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn.- This year the Grammy nominations concert is going a little bit country.

A live concert will showcase this year's Grammy nominees. Some of the acts set to take the stage include Fun, Ne-Yo, Luke Bryan, Maroon 5 and classic rockers the Who. Sheryl Crow, Little Big Town, The Lumineers and Nas have also been added to the list of presenters for the show.

The show is being held outside of Los Angeles for the first time. Nashville Mayor Karl Dean and others in the tourism industry said they are excited that this concert is being held in Nashville. The show will be seen on a national stage and they believe it gets the word out that Nashville is about all types of music.

Tickets for Wednesday's show are still available.
