Jake Owen made headlines in 2012 following brief detainment, which he received for putting a mask on outside of a Florida Steak 'N Shake, while Luke Bryan's dependance on a cheat sheet to get through the National Anthem surprised us, and Ashton Kutcher's attempt to impress country music fans at the ACM Awards left a bad taste in many people's mouths. That turned into a fiasco and brief feud with Miranda Lambert, which was quite scandalous. Did another story drop your jaw further? Let us know in the comments section below.
