Calendar Clarification: Robert Plant & Alison Krauss

On February 9, 2009, you will see numerous websites that proclaim that Robert Plant won five Grammy awards for his collaboration with Alison Krauss, including Album of the Year (Raising Sand) and Record of the Year for "Please Read The Letter" on that date.

That is false--the websites naively copied reports from newspaper reports the morning of February 9.  As most people know, newspapers are published the morning following the news.  The Grammy Awards are presented on Sunday nights, and in 2009, Sunday fell on February 8.
