We're taking diabetes by the horns! A behind-the-scenes look at #BuckOffDiabetes.
It started with a segment on Good Morning America, gained steam at the iHeartCountry Festival in Austin and continued onto Jimmy Kimmel's stage. Now #BuckOffDiabetes is in your hands, but here's a little look at the fun in Austin with country singer and Accu-Chek® Guide user Ben Rue.*
We've loved watching Ben continue his meteoric rise in the country music scene, and his performance at the Daytime Village at the iHeartCountry Festival by AT&T blew the audience away. The day started early, with Ben and the band performing a sound check at 8am. (We didn't realize musicians even got up that early.)
By noon, everything was set up and Ben was introduced by Amy Brown, who you may recognize as Bobby Bones' sidekick on his insanely popular radio show. After a little chitchat, Ben took the stage for his set, which was over far too soon by our estimation. But then, fans probably wanted to have a chance to see Luke Bryan, Keith Urban, Maren Morris and the other great names on the program.
The rest of the day was spent laughing at the lines of people who wanted to share their bull horns in our photo booth.
