Welcome to another entertaining installment of Celebs Tweet the Darnedest Things! Without further ado, we present to you the recent tweets that made us laugh, message each other, laugh some more, and hit “favorite” to preserve the tweets for today’s edition!

Celebs Tweet the Darnedest Things!

It’s been an active week in the Twitterverse, and at the center of the activity lie some of your favorite country artists. Let’s cut to the chase and laugh together at the best of the best that we caught over the last seven days.

When life imitates art, and art involves driving without hands, you end up in the predicament Luke Bryan ended up in this week. Luke Bryan tweeted “@LukeBryanOnline: Before y’all get out of your truck. Make sure you put it in park. Trust me.”

Some very solid words of advice from Luke. Perhaps he, too, had his hands up while rocking in his truck…

I just saw Runner Runner and had some pleasant Justin Timberlake inspired dreams soon thereafter. Apparently I’m not the only one, based on Jennifer Nettles‘ recent tweet – “@JenniferNettles: I had a dream last night that my baby sleeping beside me yelled out ‘Ladieeees and Gentlemen: Justin Timberlaaaaaake’. ??? @jtimberlake

Not only is Justin Timberlake taking over the the music and acting world, he is taking over the dream world too. Hey, there are much worse people for your baby to introduce to you in your slumber.

Having 100,000 Twitter followers is a big deal. So, it should come as no surprise that some musicians will go through great lengths to encourage their fans to help them hit that landmark number. See Terri Clark who recently tweeted “@TerriClarkMusic: Ok so the first person to get me 100k twitter followers, gets my first born. Best hurry. My Ovaries=californiaraisinsdoingthebackstroke”

Perhaps an interesting offer, but if the kid pops out singing the way his/her mom does, it might be worth your while…

If you frequent the gym, you know there is always that character who flexes in the mirror and not-so-discretely checks himself out. Sunny Sweeney was lucky enough to spot that guy during her recent workout. Sunny tweeted “@GettinSweeney: The grunting slaps-his-stomach-in-the-mirror guy is in the gym. Yay! No.” Not long after Sunny tweeted, calling out the narcissistic gym-goer, she followed it up with “I also saw someone I knew in the gym. I hope he doesn’t think my last tweet was about him. Bahaha!!!”

Sir who Sunny knew in the gym, rest assure she was not mocking you. However, if you do, in fact, grunt and slap your stomach in the mirror, WE ARE mocking you.

Sunny Sweeney.

Texas born and raised, Sunny Sweeney has long been heralded for her vocal prowess, and now she can add the recognition of an ACM Award nomination to her list of accolades as earlier this week Sunny was unveiled as one of the three nominees in The Academy of Country Music Awards’ New Female Vocalist of the Year category.

Voting for the distinguished award will begin on VoteACM.com on Monday, January 21 and remain open through Feb. 4 with the winner of the category continuing on to compete for the title of New Artist of the Year Award at the 48th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards live on April 7, 2013 at 8 p.m. ET/delayed PT on the CBS Television Network.

On being nominated, Sunny shares:

Getting nominated for ACM New Female Vocalist is maybe the coolest thing to happen to me. I’ve been playing country music in honky-tonks and dive bars for almost a decade, so finally getting this kind of recognition is absolutely HUGE!  I started out playing in Texas for beer and cheeseburgers, so this is just so gratifying!” she says laughing. “In all seriousness, it’s validating to know that the ACM considers my kind of country music and my voice something worth keeping an eye and an ear on, and for that, I’m very grateful.” 

Sweeney shows off her sense of humor in her ACM campaign video with a spoof of Justin Timberlake and Andy Samberg’s infamous SNL Digital Short, “Dick In A Box.” View Sweeney’s version, in which she implores fans to “Click In The Box,” HERE.
