The boy who Taylor Swift invited to the ACM Awards responded via video today. He’s fighting cancer and had invited Swift to prom last week. George Strait is also sick, but thankfully things don’t seem to be nearly as dire — although he did have to do something almost unheard of to his fans.

Both of these stories, plus the prank Scotty McCreery pulled on Brad Paisley, are amongst the top country headlines in the Taste of Country Daily Roundup, but we’ve also included a few others, like the best dressed celebrities at the 2012 Oscars.
