Mix Tape: More Money for Eminem, More Football for Faith Hill

Faith Hill on Sunday Night Football-Eminem’s publishing company is owed money by Universal Music Group, according to the U.S. Court of Appeals. It was ruled that UMG needs to pay royalties for iTunes purchases and ringtone sales.

-Musical performers will help kick off the official start of football season. On September 9, Taylor Swift and the Dave Matthews Band will perform in New Orleans prior to the Minnesota Vikings/New Orleans Saints game. The pregame show will air on NBC and the NFL Network.

-Speaking of football, a familiar voice will sing us into the Sunday evening battles. Country star Faith Hill has been chosen to once again perform the “Waiting All Day for Sunday Night” theme song. Faith has had that gig since 2007.

-The boys of New Jersey may soon take over Las Vegas. Bon Jovi is reportedly “excited” by a multimillion-dollar offer to take up residency at one of the area hotels.
