E! to Air MACKLEMORE'S BIG SURPRISE, 11/7
by TV News Desk - Oct 23, 2013

As one of the most celebrated and innovative musical acts in the world today, Macklemore has a lot to be thankful for. A string of prestigious awards and nominations this year make him music's 'It' boy, but according to the artist himself, if it weren't for one very special woman, he might not be alive today. In this intimate one-hour special, Macklemore opens up about his long struggle with drug abuse and how fiancée Tricia Davis and her mother Diana helped him get his life back on track. Now on top of the world, Macklemore invites E! cameras into his new studio to talk frankly about the addiction that nearly destroyed him, and how love brought him back from the brink. And in a grand gesture of gratitude to the woman who helped change his life for the better, he orchestrates a gorgeous home makeover, when the new E! special 'Macklemore's Big Surprise' premieres Thursday, November 7th at 10pm ET/PT.
