The rumors swirled that singer/songwriter, Andy Grammer (“Honey I’m Good”) is part of the Dancing with the Stars 21 cast. Now it’s official! Andy made the announcement this morning on the Ryan Seacrest KIIS FM radio show.

Great news! Sadly, there’s some bad news too. Peta Murgatroyd, set to be his pro partner, won’t be joining Andy on the dance floor this season due to injury.

“I’ve had one meeting so far with my partner who apparently got hurt, which is a super bummer,” Andy said. “So have to get another partner, which is terrible. I really liked her! Her name is Peta Murgatroyd. I can kind of move and be on beat, but I was telling her, everything she wanted me to do was like Gaston from Beauty and the Beast.”

When Ryan asked if he was a good dancer, Andy answered truthfully, “Not really!” Listen to the full interview below.
