Recording Academy president Neil Portnow told The AP that the television special is being moved from Los Angeles to Nashville to add "flavour".
"There's probably no city more renowned as a music centre in America and probably the world than Nashville, TN. We have had a great experience with the city of Nashville as an organisation," Portnow said.
Portnow also indicated that the Grammys could move outside of Los Angeles in future years as well, but the 2013 ceremony will still be held at The Staples Center.
The fifth annual Grammy Nominations Concert Live will reveal a select batch of nominees from the Bridgestone Arena on December 5 on CBS.
The 2013 Grammy Awards also air on CBS on February 10, 2013.
