Asked about newfound fatherhood, singer Lukas Forchhammer recounted a stinky story to Gregg and Freddy. “When I was told we were nominated for three GRAMMYs I was standing there with a poopy diaper at a truck stop in eastern Ohio,” he said with a laugh.

“For the last year we’ve traveled all around the world and we’ve played at different awards shows, and big arenas, and we’re nominated for three GRAMMYs,” he continued. “But when I’m sitting with my daughter in my arms you know that all the little things between the awards shows – that’s life, you know? You’ve got to save that and remember that’s the important part.”
