But Brad told US Magazine last year that he would probably not like being a judge, "I would probably hate it.

Zac Brown wants to teach his daughters how to can their own food, how to make preserves and how to fish. He told Southern Living magazine that he wants his girls to stay grounded.

I want to teach them perspective. That's important."
Taylor Swift is banned from spending the night at the Kennedy Mansion in Hyannis Port. Not because the Kennedy clan is afraid of any hanky panky going between Taylor and the late Ted Kennedy's son Patrick, who are rumored to be dating. According to the newspaper The Boston Globe, the mansion is being transformed into a research center per Ted Kennedy's Will and officials feared that housing guests would ruin the institute's tax-exempt nonprofit status. Even Kennedy family members are supposed to pay rent to use the grounds and can not stay in the mansion, according to the article.
