Big & Rich 4628

Superstar country duo Big & Rich discovered late Friday that Canton, Texas teenager Jenni Sherwood’s dying wish is to attend a high school prom. [Full story here]. Jenni was diagnosed almost two years ago with desmoplastic small round tumors, for which there is no cure.  Sherwood, a freshman, built up the courage to ask her acquaintance and high school junior, Clayton Cox, to take her to the prom in a Facebook message. Cox obliged – with the help of the entire neighboring Edgewood High School, and Saturday night is their big night. [WATCH HERE]

Big Kenny & John Rich decided early Saturday it would be appropriate to celebrate the momentous occasion by inviting the pair to the Academy of Country Music’s 50th ACM Awards Sunday at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.  The Academy obliged – and has given the pair some of the best seats in the house – on stage, sitting with the stars!
