Success can go to your head. It’s true.
Sometimes one’s accomplishments can make that person feel a tad taller, and one’s resume can have him feeling cooler than the guy in the next car. Yet, it’s not a good path to go down, especially if you are a big country superstar.
As fans know, the beauty of country music artists are that, despite their popularity and success, they remain down-to-earth beings who can easily laugh at their so-called stardom. They can also laugh at the little reminders the world sometimes gives them to keep them centered.
Take, for example, the onscreen error that Fox News ran recently. “I guess I’m still working to get people to know who I am,” Luke wrote on Sept. 22 alongside a pic of him with Dierks Bentley and former President George W. Bush. The onscreen caption not only had Luke’s last name spelled wrong, but also made it sound like Dierks was the only star in the picture, painting Luke as a bystander.
Of course, it’s not the first time it has become evident that not everyone knows country music’s biggest stars. In fact, the Luke snafu is just one in a long history of mix-ups, which just this past week have also included Dierks Bentley (again!) and Kelsea Ballerini.
Kelsea recently appeared on “Project Runway,” and was identified in an onscreen programming guide as “Chelsea.”
And Dierks wrote, “Love it … Keeps ya humble! #Dierk #Dericks,” alongside this photo of his own mislabeled gear and stage marker.
