But, it’s Sofía Vergara
Romo almost didn’t make it out of the green room. When Dalrymple came to get him, Romo was talking to actresses Reese Witherspoon and Sofía Vergara.
As he was pulled off for his time onstage, Romo joked, “You didn’t have to pull me out of there so quickly. I don’t go on until 7:37.”
After his big completion, Romo was back up in Jerry Jones’ mega suite with his wife, Candice, and Jerry’s crowd of heavy hitters
If you carry the ACM Awards on your network, you get one of the best seats. CBS president Les Moonves was up front in the Jones suite with his wife, Julie Chen. It was old hat for the couple, who attended last year when CBS broadcast the Final Four from the same spot.
Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett, tight end Jason Witten and tackle Doug Free were also present.
The Garth seal
Locals will recall years ago when Garth Brooks sold out three nights in a row at Texas Stadium. He knows a thing or two about playing a big room. And he is ... well, he’s particular about the sound.
During his afternoon sound check, he was thrilled with the results of the ACMs’ high-dollar system. (On the floor, a speaker was mounted under every third seat.)
Afterward, he walked offstage and told Jerry Jones and ACM CEO Bob Romeo, “I’ve never seen a setup like this in a stadium. This is the most amazing set and sound.”
