Traffic sucks, amirite? 

Just ask Darius Rucker whose Grammy acceptance speech didn't happen because he was stuck in the notorious Los Angeles traffic. 

Darius' publicist, Ebie McFarland, spoke to the The State (via ToC), and said the singer, who won the Grammy for Best Country Solo Performance for Wagon Wheel, missed being able to give an acceptance speech during the show's pre-telecast because he was stuck somewhere in a traffic jam.

Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton score a Grammy nomination

Dolly and Kenny

On Friday night, the Grammy nominees for 2014 were announced, and you know who got nominated?

Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton that's who! 

I know who I will be rooting for this year. 

The pair were nominated for their duet of You Can't Make Old Friends from Kenny's album by the same name. According to Wikipedia, this makes Dolly's 46th nomination. If she and Kenny win, this will be her 8th Grammy.  Wikipedia doesn't have any fancy list of awards he's won like they do for Dolly, but his page does say that he's won three Grammys over the years. 

The Grammy Awards will air on CBS January 26, 2014. 

If you missed the Grammy Nomination Concert that aired on Friday, Taylor Swift and Keith Urban both performed. You can check out Taylor's performance here and Keith's here
