To do Sunday

> Tune in to the Grammys. LaFayette, Georgia, native Steven Lance Ledbetter and his wife, April, are among the nominees. Their category, Best Historical Album, won't be included in the prime-time portion of the awards show on CBS, but can be seen earlier in the day, streaming on the Recording Academy's YouTube channel and at live.grammy.com starting at 3:30 p.m. EDT. The vast majority of winners are announced in an afternoon "premiere ceremony" hosted by LeVar Burton. The Ledbetters own Atlanta-based Dust to Digital, founded in 1999 to curate, restore and present hard-to-access music. This nomination, their 11th, is for "Excavated Shellac: An Alternate History of the World's Music," the fourth co-production between Dust-to-Digital and producer, writer and record collector Jonathan Ward, with additional production by Michael Graves, who digitized and restored all 100 tracks included in the anthology, and Barbara Bersche, who designed a 186-page PDF. Dust to Digital has won two Grammys previously. Learn more about the company at dust-digital.com.
