Thomas Rhett gets his first starring role on Nutter Center stage this weekend

Platinum-selling country singer Thomas Rhett has performed at the Nutter Center in Fairborn in support of Miranda Lambert and Florida-Georgia Line.

However, when the second-generation country singer returns to the venue on Saturday, March 11, it will be on his first headlining tour.

“It has been mind-boggling,” Rhett said recently, speaking over the phone from his Nashville home. “It’s scary the first time you jump in headfirst and say, ‘Alright, we’re going to go put our name on these billboards at these arenas and hope to God they sell enough tickets.’ Before this, all we’d ever done is headline certain festivals and be the middle slot on a tour with Jason Aldean or Luke Bryan. “You never really can get a read on who your fans are at those shows because they really are there to see the headliner,” Rhett continued. “I pretty much got convinced by management and promoters that this is the year we try it out.”

Rhett, the son of country artist Rhett Akins, was wise to trust his team. The tour started in early March and runs into the fall, with dates in the United States and Europe. Due to brisk advance ticket sales, extra concerts were added before Rhett and his band left Nashville for the first performance.

“The whole tour is pretty much sold out, which is unbelievable,” Rhett said. “I’d never in my life put a date on sale with my name on it that did more than 3,000 tickets so you can understand where my fear came from. It has just blown me away and it’s all due to how big of a year we had in 2016. “The team picked great singles and I guess the last five years of playing shows and making fans on the way really has paid off,” he continued. “It really has been the most fun I’ve ever had and it’s early in the tour so I can’t wait to see what happens.”

Rhett and his band recently recorded the basic tracks for the follow-up to his platinum selling 2015 album, “Tangled Up.”

“A lot of times we get into the process of a new record and we’re trying to juggle touring, writing and recording and it gets pretty overwhelming,” Rhett said. “We purposely didn’t start the tour until the beginning of February so we could take the entire month of January to make the next record. It’s not done but everything is recorded, which is nice. We hope to have a release later this year.”

Multi-platinum MCA Nashville recording artist Josh Turner, is one of country music’s most recognizable hit-makers. With a rich, deep voice and distinctive style, Turner has sold more than 12 million units, is a disciple of traditional country music and one of the youngest members of the Grand Ole Opry. From his 2003 Platinum-selling debut Long Black Train to his most recent 2012 Billboard No. 1 release Punching Bag, Turner has garnered multiple GRAMMY, CMA, and ACM nominations. Turner’s hits include “Your Man,” “Why Don’t We Just Dance,” “Firecracker,” “Would You Go with Me,” “All Over Me,” and “Time Is Love,” the most played country song of 2012. 

Turner added author to his list of accomplishments. His first book, Man Stuff: Thoughts on Faith, Family and Fatherhood was released in 2014. The Hannah, S.C. native has been songwriting and performing since he was a young child, and in support of music education, created The Josh Turner Scholarship Fund to assist students interested in pursuing a future in arts and music. As a high school student, Turner had very little access to music education, therefore realizes first-hand the importance of arts education in schools. 

Turner is currently on the road in support of his latest radio single, “Hometown Girl,” which Rolling Stone Country notes, “pairs the South Carolina native’s unmistakable, country-to-the-core baritone with a modern, rollicking beat.” For more information on Josh Turner, visit www.JoshTurner.com.

Jo Dee Messina is a seasoned veteran in the music industry, always evolving and reintroducing herself and her sound as she gains new experiences in life. Jumpstarting her career, Jo Dee’s breakout song, “Heads Carolina, Tails California,” made her a household name. Following the success of her debut, Jo Dee posted nine No. 1 hits, sixteen Top 40 songs, sold over five million albums worldwide, and was honored by the ACM Awards, CMA Awards, and GRAMMY Awards. As Jo Dee’s résumé grew, she proved to be a trendsetter and history-maker, becoming the first female in country music history to celebrate three consecutive multi-week, chart-topping songs. 

Jo Dee later parted ways with her long-time record label and embraced the strong, empowered female persona for which she became known. Taking matters into her own hands, Jo Dee created Dreambound Records, called on her fans to become her dedicated team, and released her most personal album to date, Me. 

Aside from her studio successes, Jo Dee has also created a reputation for herself as one of the most passionate, high-energy performers in the business. Sharing her hit tunes; newly penned, emotionally-driven songs; and personal testimony, Jo Dee has been traveling the country for many years, receiving rave reviews for her authenticity, commitment, and openness on stage. Hoping to inspire and enlighten fans from all walks of life with every step she takes, Jo Dee has made it her mission to present herself and her story with honesty, allowing people to see behind the masquerade. 

With a decorated past in the rearview mirror and endless dreams and an open road of possibility before her, this relatable woman, wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, speaker, author, and incredibly gifted singer-songwriter has only just begun. Fueled by faith, belief, and love, Jo Dee pours her heart and soul into everybody she meets and everything she touches, which is perhaps why Jo Dee Messina is such a timeless name in the music industry.

PricewaterhouseCoopers identifies man responsible for Oscars Best Picture mix-up

Nicole Moschella contributed to this report.

PricewaterhouseCoopers, the accounting firm responsible for organizing results and monitoring distribution of awards at the Oscars, has identified the man responsible for a snafu Sunday night in which "La La Land" was mistakenly announced as Best Picture instead of "Moonlight."

After releasing a statement apologizing to Faye Dunaway, Warren Beatty and the casts and crews of "Moonlight” and “La La Land," the company released another apology, acknowledging that an accountant at the firm is to blame for the mistake.

"PwC takes full responsibility for the series of mistakes and breaches of established protocols during last night's Oscars," the statement says. "PwC partner Brian Cullinan mistakenly handed the back-up envelope for Actress in a Leading Role instead of the envelope for Best Picture to presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway.

"Once the error occurred, protocols for correcting it were not followed through quickly enough by Mr. Cullinan or his partner. We are deeply sorry for the disappointment suffered by the cast and crew of 'La La Land' and 'Moonlight.' We sincerely apologize to Warren Beatty, Faye Dunaway, Jimmy Kimmel, ABC and the Academy, none of whom (were) at fault for (Sunday) night's errors.

"We wish to extend our deepest gratitude to each of them for the graciousness they displayed during such a difficult moment. For the past 83 years, the Academy has entrusted PwC with the integrity of the awards process during the ceremony, and last night we failed the Academy."

pic.twitter.com/uNGSbhgKFt— PwC LLP (@PwC_LLP) February 28, 2017

According to People magazine, Cullinan, who was explicitly told to not use social media during the awards show, tweeted just minutes before accidentally handing Beatty and Dunaway the wrong envelope.

In a now-deleted tweet, Cullinan posted a picture of Emma Stone holding her award backstage after she had accepted the award for Best Actress for her role in "La La Land."

"Brian was asked not to tweet or use social media during the show," an unnamed source told People. "He was fine to tweet before he arrived at the red carpet but once he was under the auspices of the Oscar night job, that was to be his only focus. Tweeting right before the Best Picture category was announced was not something that should have happened."

According to the source, the blunder may have put PwC's relationship with the Academy Awards in jeopardy.

"The Academy has launched a full-scale review of its relationship with PwC, but it is very complicated," the source told the magazine. "Vote-tallying and the Oscar night job is just one part of what PwC does with the Academy. It is too early to say how this will play out, but everyone is of course taking it very very seriously."

Before the start of the Oscars on Sunday, Cullinan told The Huffington Post that a mishap announcing an incorrect winner was "unlikely," and that if there were a mistake, PwC executives "would make sure that the correct person was known very quickly."

"Whether that entails stopping the show, us walking onstage, us signaling to the stage manager -- that’s really a game-time decision, if something like that were to happen," he said.

>> Here's how the Oscars mix-up for Best Picture happened

"La La Land" producers had already begun their acceptance speeches before being notified of the mix-up.

Cullinan has not publicly commented on the incident or posted on his Twitter account since the mistake on Sunday night.

Tim Ryan, a senior partner and U.S. chairman at PwC, told Variety magazine that he has spoken with Cullinan about the incident.

"He feels very, very terrible and horrible. He is very upset about this mistake. And it is also my mistake, our mistake, and we all feel very bad," Ryan said.

According to Cullinan's Twitter bio, he is a Cornell alumnus and a managing partner for PwC's Southwest region. He is based out of Malibu, California.
