XM Radio announced today that it will launch "GRAMMY Radio," a dedicated channel providing unmatched coverage of GRAMMY week events.

GRAMMY Radio will air on XM channel 200 Feb. 6-8, the evening of the 48th Annual Grammy Awards.

GRAMMY Radio will feature red-carpet interviews as well as broadcasts of unforgettable performances by a "who's who" of superstar artists at the most exclusive events during Grammy week.

These include MusiCares Person of the Year Tribute and Performance honoring music legend James Taylor and a live broadcast of the memorable performances from the Clive Davis party.

"GRAMMY Radio will provide millions of XM subscribers the closest thing to red-carpet access and front-row seats at the music industry's most exclusive events, traditionally reserved only for music industry VIPs," said Eric Logan, executive vice president of programming for XM Radio.
