- Jamey Johnson took another step towards establishing himself as one of the best and most acclaimed country singers of the era by topping Nasvhille Scene's 11th Annual Country Music Critics Poll.

- Gladys Horton, a founding member of popular Motown girl group the Marvelettes, passed away on Wednesday at the age of 66. She is best known for singing "Please Mr. Postman," which was Motown's first No. 1 pop hit in 1961. Horton was just 15 years old at the time.

- Part two of an L.A. Times interview with Best Coast and Wavves reveals, among other things, that Best Coast's Bethany Cosentino acted in a Little Caesar's commercial before she was in her band.
