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.

Update: I've posted the full album cover now.

Jennifer Nettles' new solo album, "That Girl," is set to be released on January 14 and now she's revealing her album cover in puzzle form. Above is what the album cover looks like at the moment, and so it should be completely revealed by tomorrow or the next day I'd think.

I think it gives you perspective all around, not just musically but also in my career. I think you get superefficient because you have to be. You don't worry about things that were superimportant before because you have a baby and you just burn that underbrush out. You feel like a huntress."

Jennifer will also be embarking on a solo tour to support the new release.
