Louis C.K. (LINK) (Comedy) and Dave Chappelle (LINK)(spoken word) both got Grammy noms — despite their individual battles with “cancel culture”. Country singer Morgan Wallen is still serving his suspension for being caught on video saying the N-word. He got NOTHING . . . even though he had one of the most popular albums of the year. But guess who is second only to the Stones in current tour ticket sales? According to Pollstar’s Live 75 chart (LINK), Morgan WAllen is selling an average of 27,645 tickets per show. The Stones are averaging 43,091. The chart ranks worldwide active tours by average tickets sold for shows played over the last 60 days. And the demand for tickets to Morgan’s concerts is even greater than the availability. Some shows on The Dangerous Tour sold out during pre-sale. That means the general public didn’t even get a shot. But he’s trying to keep up. So far he’s added an extra concert at New York’s Madison Square Garden, and two more at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena. This also means Morgan is outselling his heroes. In Pollstar’s list you’ll find Eric Church right behind him in third place, with an average of 15,633 tickets sold. Luke Combs is fourth at 14,431 . . . and Chris Stapleton is 10th averaging 12,295 sold.
PUDDLE OF MUDD singer WES SCANTLIN had another meltdown, and left the stage in the middle of a concert. This time it was supposedly because the lights were too bright.

A monetary settlement is nearing completion in the Rams relocation lawsuit, a source with direct knowledge of the negotiations told the Post-Dispatch late Tuesday night. The figure of the settlement was not disclosed. Lawyers representing Rams owner Stan Kroenke and the NFL were in St. Louis on Tuesday for a mediation session with lawyers representing the city, county and the Regional Convention and Sports Complex Authority to discuss settlement possibilities. A source said lawyers were working late Tuesday night to inform all NFL owners of the deal. Negotiations went on for hours Tuesday at a Clayton law firm as attempts to strike a deal were continued in the advance of two important dates. The first was a contempt of court hearing that would decide if multiple influential NFL owners had satisfied a court request to hand over detailed financial information for the pursuit of potential punitive damages against certain owners. The second was the start of a January trial (LINK) that would ask a St. Louis jury to decide if Kroenke, his fellow owners and the NFL broke Missouri law by violating the league’s relocation guidelines during the 2016 relocation of the Rams from St. Louis to Los Angeles.
The life of an NFL player might seem kind of glamorous . . . but all the practicing isn’t. Especially around the holidays. During a chat with OPRAH, TOM BRADY said, quote, “Thanksgiving there’s a lot to be thankful for. “But you only get about four hours to enjoy it. Practice usually ends about 1:00 or 2:00 p.m., you eat about 3:30 and then you’re getting ready for the next day of practice. And then same thing with Christmas. He added, quote, “I’m looking forward to the time when I’m done playing football so that I can have some of those more normal holidays that I had growing up that were important where the family’s all together.” One thing Tom loves about Thanksgiving is that he can eat like everyone else. Quote, “That’s the one meal where I’m like, screw it, let’s go for it. And we all get to enjoy it.” – LINK

The Tennessee Titans waived running back Adrian Peterson on Tuesday, three weeks after signing the former league MVP (LINK). They also signed veteran wide receiver Golden Tate (LINK) to their practice squad. Peterson, 36, played in three games for Tennessee but struggled to produce.
The Cardinals joined in the pre-holiday shopping spree on starting pitchers late Tuesday night to land a lefthanded boost for their rotation. Steven Matz, a 14-game winner with Toronto this past season, agreed on a multi-year deal with the Cardinals on Tuesday, as first reported by ESPN.com (LINK). The lefty agreed to a four-year, $44-million contract, according to reports.
The Cardinals have not confirmed the signing and did not reply to messages left early Wednesday morning. Team policy is to decline comment on free agents. Any finalized agreement is pending a physical, a source said. Matz, 30, spent the past year with the Blue Jays and went 14-7 with a 3.82 ERA in 29 starts. In 150 2/3 innings, the lefty struck out 144 and walked only 43.
