This guy is pretty darn popular around these here parts, and since he's coming to SPAC on August 16th with Lee Brice, I thought I'd study up on the guy.  I found some interesting facts that I didn't know, and I bet you didn't either, so here we go.

These factoids are all brought to you by your fine friends at Wikipedia.  I trust the information, don't you?  Well, this is all I have to go by for now, so let's just have faith, shall we?

Ok according to our source:

1. At one time he was engaged to actress Jana Kramer, but they split in 2013.

3. He was a special needs counselor at one time at an elementary school in Georgia. (pretty nice, huh?)

4. He has a tattoo that shows he is behind the second amendment.

5. He co-wrote Jason Aldean's Dirt Road Anthem.  

Interesting guy, and talented too.  I'm sure you'll enjoy seeing him perform !  Once again, he's coming to SPAC.  Get your tickets early!
