Andy Griggs’ Dog Now Missing from Home Fire

Nashville, TN (Tuesday November 24, 2009)  As we reported yesterday, country singer Andy Griggs lost his home to a fire over the weekend. Andy would like for everyone to know that he and his family are fine.

The first call the band received immediately following their win was from Taylor Swift from London to say, “I always believed in you guys and always knew you could do it.” Adding with a laugh “But didn’t actually think you’d do it!!!” Gloriana, who has been on the road with some of country music’s biggest stars including Alan Jackson, Jason Aldean, and Dierks Bentley, will hit the road again next year on Taylor’s FEARLESS 2010 Tour. “We…
