Having already taken home the ACM prize for Top New Vocal Group in 2010, the band sat down with Radio.com to tell us what awards shows are really like. They also shared insight into one mishap that happened to them.
“They have seat fillers [during the ceremony], so if you do get up to go to the bathroom, you come back and there’s somebody in your seat,” Tom Gossin said. “Actually, we had a funny debacle. We couldn’t find our seat, and the show had already started, and we had an usher that was trying to help us find our seat and he was confused about where we were supposed to sit. We were those people that were like, ‘Excuse me, excuse me. Sorry.’ Everyone was having to stand up for us and it was very embarrassing. Pure Gloriana style.”
While Tom has a blast at the awards shows, Rachel Reinert told a different story. She explained why they can be stressful.
