Big Dave’s Big Thoughts


ACM Award Winners

They definitely did it BIG in Texas last night with the Academy of Country Music Awards! Miranda won 4 awards, but the big one went to Luke Bryan. It was a night that saw Brooks & Dunn reunite, a Taylor Swift tribute from her mom, Jason Aldean’s mic stand on […]


Tax Day Freebies and Deals

Any way you slice it, today is really not much fun. There’s much paperwork to be done, lines to stand in, and for a lot of folks, money to be parted with. Beyond that though, several businesses have decided to throw a little feel good in your direction. Here’s a […]


Vote For Nashville Crush

This morning Brad Wright from Nashville Crush called in to talk about pretty cool opportunity for the band. LiftMaster Garage Door Openers is running a nationwide Garage Band contest, and Nashville Crush is one of just 4 bands in the country with a shot to play a huge festival at […]


Pepper Hacker To The Rescue

It’s passive aggressive mommying at its finest, and I can’t think of a reason not to own one. I mean, Doug did mention that there is some fear of it shutting down EVERY electronic device, and some of those are necessary (like pacemakers) but I think they’ve got that figured […]


April Is Child Abuse Prevention Month

This month is packed with events designed to help bring awareness to child abuse and neglect in Hancock County. From the hundreds of real men who strut their stuff at Walk A Mile In Her Shoes, to the 333 blue pinwheels placed on the lawn of the Hancock County Courthouse, there […]


Nightmare Sauce

If you hate sleep, this is a good thing for you, because there’s a decent chance you’ll never be able to again. One night a few months ago, Doug sent me a pic of Jigsaw and his farmous “Wanna play a game?” line, and I’ve never felt safe since. I […]


Sam Hunt “Cop Car”

One of my favorite things is to hear different versions of songs that have become huge hits. Keith Urban recorded “Cop Car” and it went on to be huge for him, but the guy who REALLY benefitted is the writer, Sam Hunt. He’s gone on to enjoy his own success […]


Ask And Ye Shall Receive, Indeed

When you’re Pope Francis, you do not go out to get pizza. When you’re Pope Francis, the pizza comes to you. Apparently he said something about wanting to be able to go out and get a pizza without being recognized, and a pizza maker in Naples thought he should help […]


Sam Hunt’s Video for “Take Your Time”

It’s possible that I’m not very smart. This is a great, not just good, video. Hugely poignant, beautifully shot, and it even makes Sam Hunt the hero, but I’m not sure that I get how it has anything to do with the song. Does it have to have anything to […]


Tim McGraw on Repeat After Me

One of the great things about the superstars in Country music is that not many of them take it all too seriously. Everybody knows about the antics of guys like Blake Shelton and Brad Paisley, but Tim McGraw is a guy with a great sense of humor, too. A couple […]
