NASHVILLE, TENN. (AP) - Lady Antebellum guitarist Dave Haywood still needs a plus-one for the CMA Awards.

He tells The Associated Press that he asked his mom to go with him over Twitter, because “she loves Twitter for some reason.” But it turns out she can’t go.

The group is up for five awards at the Nov. 10 show, including entertainer of the year and album of the year.

Haywood tweeted from the group’s account Wednesday: “SO humbled by the nominations!!! Very excited. Would be more excited if my mom (at)SCLadyA would be my date for the show. Mom?”

Haywood says he’s “bummed” his mom can’t attend, but now he’s “in the hunt.” He thinks his dad will likely come up.

Singer Charles Kelley says, “You know we’re in a new age, a new era when you’re asking your mom over Twitter to go to an awards show. That is awesome.”
