Talk About it Tuesday with Big Ced: Gas Prices, Local Concerts, and the Grammys
It's Talk About it Tuesday, and let's first talk about these gas prices. I usually was paying about $2.20 before the ice storm. Now prices have jumped up to around $2.40 even with my T-mobile Tuesday promotional 10 cents off.
After two postponed and canceled concerts due to the pandemic, Calvin Richardson and friends will be at the Harker Heights Events Center Saturday, March 27th. If you have tickets from previous shows, those tickets will be honored at this show. Tune in Monday through Friday during my show from Noon till 3 pm to win your way in or you can call 254-702-8845 or click on the Eventbrite link to purchase tickets.
The 63rd Grammy Awards aired this past Sunday. Beyonce made history with her 28th win, 9 Grammys, this year, putting her at the top above bluegrass artist Alison Krauss.
Beyonce wasn't the only Texas artist that did big things at this year's Grammys. Austin's own Black Pumas had 2 nominations - Record of the Year and Album of the year. Megan Thee Stallion from the same city as Bey won Best New Artist and Best Rap Performance.
Notably, one of my favorite artists Robert Glasper won Best R&B Song for his single "Better Than I Imagined " with H.E.R. and Meshell Ndegeocello.
Big Shout to Nas for winning Best Rap Album with his album "King's disease."
Kudos to PJ Morton for winning Best Gospel Album with his latest studio album, "Gospel According to PJ."
Salute to John Legend won the Best R&B Album for his album "Bigger Love" and Ledisi winning Best Traditional R&B Performance for her Banger "Anything For You."
I've been fortunate to hear all these artists in a live concert setting, and all of them are deserving of all accolades.
