Jennifer Nettles Shares Her Embarrassing Encounter With Bruce “The Boss” Springsteen on the “Today” Show

Reba did it on Monday (Feb. 6), Keith Urban did it on Tuesday (Feb. 7) and Jennifer Nettles did it today (Feb. 9). And by “it,” we mean play a game of country confessions while co-hosting the third hour of the Today show

Jennifer joined hosts Al Roker and Shenielle Jones as they once again pulled out their question-filled cowboy boot. Jennifer reached into the boot and snagged a few questions to answer, including who is your most embarrassing celebrity encounter?

The “Unlove You” singer explained, “You know what, I am awful at this anyway because I get very nervous and I fan-girl and I try not to make myself feel foolish, but often times no matter what, I do. So I try not to talk a lot when I get around people I really, really admire.

“I’ve had the pleasure of meeting so many. For example, I just did the Rainforest benefit that Sting does at Carnegie Hall. And Bruce Springsteen was there, who I had the honor of honoring at Kennedy Center honors a few years ago, and, of course, I was like ‘Hey Bruce, yeah, I honored you at Kennedy Center Honors, bye,’ because what do you say, he meets so many people.”

Watch Jennifer play a round of country confessions, which includes her naming her go-to Karaoke song.

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

When you’re getting a permanent addition to you body, you want to make sure it means something, right?

Michael Ray has several tattoos, but each one has a personal connection to his life, “All my tattoos are either family based, religious based, or music based.”

He shares the story of one of his tattoos that honors his late grandmother, “So, my grandma, Penny, she passed away a couple of years ago, and I have a tattoo memory of my grandfather, and I wanted a tattoo for her. Her nickname was Penny, and I got a penny with my Grandmother’s birth year, 1942, on the date, on the inside of my arm.”

If he could change one thing about the tattoo…it would just be WHEN he got it. Turns out Michael got it on a show day, and it being on his arm, well, Michael admits “I started playing guitar that night…for the show, and it hurt like hell.”

But even with that night of pain Michael proudly says “it’s probably my favorite tattoo.”
