Grand Rapids Named One Of The “Top 100 Places To Live”

Grand Rapids has been named one of RelocateAmerica.com's Top 100 Places to Live for 2011. GR is only one of two Michigan cities (the other being Ann Arbor) to be on the list this year. And we all know why.

Those of us who live here in Grand Rapids know what makes our city awesome. Many of us have relocated from other areas of the country, or (in the cases of people like me) the state. There's just so much to love about our city, the people who live here, and our community as a whole.

Andy Grammer Keeps His Head Up In The Channel 957 Studio! [AUDIO, VIDEO & PHOTOS]

You often ask me if I love my job because of the artists I get to meet and all of the concerts I get to attend, and the answer is usually a 'yeah' or 'it depends on the artist!'   Well today, the answer is hands down (with heads high!) the former!

Up and coming artist, Andy Grammer, spent the afternoon in the studio before heading to the House of Blues for a concert in Chicago tonight!   First of all, he is adorable, 27 and single -- for any of you who are looking for Mr. Right!  Second, Andy seems to have his act together and not only knows how to work hard, but he does it with passion and a positive attitude!
