So . . . he decided to FAKE HIS OWN KIDNAPPING.
On April 24th, Aftab went to Target and bought a prepaid phone. He used that to text his parents telling them their son had been KIDNAPPED and if they went to the police, their son would DIE. His parents went to the cops anyway.
Meanwhile, Aftab was living in a tent in an open field. After eight days, the weather got cold and rainy . . . so he left the field and went back to his parents' house. He told them he'd been drugged and held as a prisoner.
Eventually, the police sorted everything out and figured out what really happened. On Friday, he was arrested and now, Aftab is facing NINE felony charges for making false statements, tampering with evidence, and making terroristic threats.

DARIUS RUCKER'S hit "Wagon Wheel" is a cover of a song by the bluegrass group OLD CROW MEDICINE SHOW. No big deal, Darius has been giving them props.
But some racist coward on Twitter didn't think Darius had the right to record the song at all. The idiot sent Darius a Tweet that said, "@DariusRucker. Leave country to the white folk."
Darius was beyond shocked. He responded, "Wow. Is this 2013 or 1913? I'll take my Grand Ole Opry membership and leave your racism. Wow."
He had a tough time letting it go too. A little while later he hit up Twitter again and wrote, "Gotta go to bed. This has been hilarious tonight. If any hater thinks I care what you think. I don't make music for you. So don't listen."
The original Tweet was from the handle "pqkullman". That account has been deleted.

Turns out it all depends on what chart you follow. We based our report on "Billboard's" Top Country Songs . . . but the "Sixty for Sixty" campaign didn't limit themselves to that.
They're saying the campaign WAS a success and they cited the Mediabase chart, which measures radio airplay. "Give It All We Got" DID hit the top of that chart . . . because it was the MOST PLAYED song on country radio last week.
Either way, George remained gracious with his words. He said, quote, "As always, I'm thankful to the fans and country radio for their support on all 60 of these number one songs as well as my entire career. They are the ones who made this happen."
George's "Sixty for Sixty" milestone got tons of love on Twitter. You can check the posts here.
