While we soaked in all the backstage fun last week at the ACM Awards, we found another Detroiter who was taking in the scenes as well. [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Ty Stone[/lastfm] really enjoyed himself in Viva Nash-Vegas with an amazing karaoke performance at [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Blake Shelton[/lastfm]’s bachelor party!
I guess being in the right place at the right time really does work. It worked great for us when we got to hear Ty’s story about being in Los Angeles at the right time when a buddy of his gave [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Kid Rock[/lastfm] Ty’s demo tape at a basketball game. He said Kid called him while he was at work.
I was flipping burgers at the time and my phone rang and I didn’t recognize the number. I thought maybe it was a bill collector so I didn’t answer it. Well, 20 minutes later I went on break and I was in the ally and it was like ‘Hey this is Kid Rock, I want to talk to you about your future in music…”
Listen here to how the rest of that fateful day played out for him!
