Country Gossip Friday
Rumors are swirling that Shania Twain might make an unannounced appearance at Sunday's ACM Awards to perform the debut single from her upcoming album, called Triumphant. The Las Vegas Review-Journal speculates Shania may appear due to her upcoming confirmed events including a headlining stop at Stagecoach on April 29th in CA, as well as the June 26th opening of her exhibit at The Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville.
Darius Rucker is getting into the whiskey business. Darius has partnered with 843 to develop his own signature blend called Backstage Southern Whiskey, a smooth, 84.3-proof craft blend. Earlier this week, RNDC Distributing introduced Backstage Southern Whiskey in Darius' home state of South Carolina, with distribution in Georgia, Kentucky and Tennessee to follow. Prior to every show, Darius gathers his tour mates, band and special guests to raise a glass of whiskey as “good luck” to ensure a great show.
