On Tuesday, Scotty McCreery was getting ready to visit the White House alongside his favorite baseball team, the Boston Red Sox, when a missing pilot derailed those plans. Scotty may have initially thought he was the butt of a bad April Fool's Day prank, but in the end he wasn't laughing. He took to Twitter to vent his frustration. He tweeted, "Woulda been at the White House today to celebrate the Red Sox World Series Championship, but @AmericanAir captain decided not to show up…" In response to Scotty's tweet, American Airlines tweeted, "Our apologies for the inconvenience, Scotty, we'll see if we can help." But Scotty was not in the forgiving mood. Scotty tweeted back, "nope, nothing you can do. Had to be at the White House gates no later than 10:15. No free tix will help this either… thanks…"

The Swon Brothers are set to fulfill a lifelong dream and make their debut on the Grand Ole Opry. The duo's Zach and Colton Swon will step onto country music's most revered stage on April 12 where they will perform their debut single "Later On." The duo's single recently broke the Country Aircheck record for most opening-week radio adds of any debut single in the publication's history and currently sits at number 33 on that chart. The song is the lead single from The Swon Brothers' debut yet-to-be-titled studio album on Arista Nashville.
