Jason Aldean postponed his concert scheduled for last night (10/6) in Prince George, Canada, after one of the semi-trucks transporting equipment for Jason's band flipped over on the side of the road. According to the local news website Castanet.net, the truck was headed from a show in Kamloops, British Columbia, to the next tour stop in Prince George when it lost control, hit a rock on the side of the road and flipped over. The publication also reports that the driver of the truck only suffered minor injuries. Local law enforcement says the cause of the accident remains under investigation. A picture posted on Twitter shows the truck flipped over. While Aldean has not commented on if the accident was the reason for the show being delayed, a message was posted on the singer's website yesterday that said the re-scheduled show will take place tonight (10/7)
TIM REVEALS MORE PROPOSAL DETAILS – TIM McGRAW
Tim McGraw and Faith Hill may have been celebrating their 19th wedding anniversary yesterday (10/6), but it was the day Tim popped the question that was the subject of a video he posted on Facebook yesterday. McGraw proposed to Hill in June of 1996 at the Country Jam Festival in Grand Junction, Colorado, and in the video, he opens up about the events that took place on that fateful day. Tim says he was in a trailer house with Faith just before he went onstage, and that's when things got pretty serious. He shares, "I looked at her and grabbed her by the hands right before I went on stage, she'd already done her show. And I said 'I'm really serious, I want you to marry me,' She didn't answer the question and McGraw took the stage to perform his set. When Tim came back to his dressing room, Hill had written him a message on the mirror inside of a fold-out armoire that he used to bring on the road with him. McGraw says, "When I came back off stage, in sharpie, with a lipstick kiss, it said, 'Yes! I'm gonna be your wife.'" Tim still has that armoire to this day.
