Miranda, Keith And ZZ Top On ACMs + Carrie Underwood Requires Clean Restroom


Sunday’s ACM awards will have some interesting duets; Miranda Lambert and Keith Urban will join with ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons. Kelsea Ballerini will duet with pop star Nick Jonas and Dolly Parton will sing with Katy Perry. Dierks Bentley has New Orleans musician Trombone Shorty on his upcoming album ‘Black’ and I’m pretty sure they’ll have an ACM collaboration. Even tho Garth plays in Ottawa Sunday night, producers say he’s part of the show but we’re not sure how. 

Carrie Underwood’s concert rider includes a back-stage organic vegetable tray, sugar-free Extra gum, peppermint Altoids and most importantly; Carrie must have a well sanitized restroom. 

Kelsea Ballerini opens for Rascal Flatts this summer and says, “they’re my entire memory and culture of country music. They’ve stayed relevant through the years & to be able to share a stage with them is so exciting.” She better be careful tho; remember when Eric Church opened for Rascal Flatts and they kicked him off the tour for playing too long and getting to close to the fans. 

Thomas Rhett is 26 today. 

Finally - Dierks Bentley says his 2-year-old son Knox is “a little mini-me. He loves airplanes, hockey, fishing; any sport. He is going to be my ticket to do a lot of fun stuff.”
