Zac Brown Band Feel Snubbed at ACAs & CMAs in Casey’s Taste of Country
The Zac Brown Band feel they are having a bit of bad luck regarding the last two award shows. If you caught the CMA’s last month, you might have noticed the band didn’t bring home one trophy out of the five categories they were nominated. This past Monday, they were up for eight American Country Awards and again, received no trophies. The band tweeted, “On a 14 award losing streak. Does that make us eligible for the Andrew Luck sweepstakes?” The weird part about the losing streak is that Carrie Underwood took off the year from touring and making new music, but yet, won three awards – makes you wonder.
The Band Perry has signed on to perform on Dick Clark’s Rockin’ New Year’s Eve with Ryan Seacrest, Saturday December 31st. It’s the 40th anniversary of the show. Also helping to celebrate will be Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, and Fergie.
Eden’s Edge is having a bit of a family reunion. Their former drummer, Chris Tyrell, left the band to join Lady Antebellum to be closer to Hillary Scott, his fiancé. Eden’s Edge is now touring with Lady A currently, on their Own the Night Tour, which will wrap up on December 18th.
And Trailer Choir’s Big Vinny has completely changed his image from being on the show, The Biggest Loser. He was 426 pounds when he started and is now down to 314. Now he has changed his life in another way – he proposed to his girlfriend, Lori Diaz, during a date at the Grand Ole Opry. The proposal was taped and aired last night on the show. Also, after popping the question, Thompson Square were on hand to sing to the happy couple.
