Big Dave’s Big Thoughts


Roller Coaster Proposal

If I’m honest, when you’ve grown up around Cedar Point, it’s tough to find any other amusement parks fun. With so many of the biggest and fastest rides, it’s easy to be spoiled. One couple found a way to make the “The Voyage” at Holiday World in Indiana just as […]


You’ll Probably Judge Me For This, But I Still Dig It

I watched this video and got goosebumps, the hair on my neck stood up, and in my head I shouted “THAT’S MY JAM!!!” Then I realized I was getting  pumped and shouting about a Taylor Swift concert. BUT… she brought out Alanis! They did “You Oughta Know!” She didn’t censor […]

He’s Still Blake, He’s Just Having One Of Those Weeks

Brad Paisley: “I come in here, I’m not drunk, so I think that’ll be a change for the show.” Blake Shelton: “You’re gonna have to do something about that.” Blake Shelton is Blake Shelton, no matter what the circumstances. Engaging, funny, but a little lighter on the left ring finger […]

Video Game Skills Pay Off In Real Life… Sometimes

When I was a kid I played a lot of video games, and one of my favorites was Flight Simulator. It was (at least at that time) a pretty complex game, actually it ws a straight up simulator more than it was a game, and I could never figure out […]


Country Concert 2015

Thursday and Friday were muddy messes, but Saturday as just about PERFECT for Country Concert 2015! This year, Country Concert celebrated 35 years, and they were kind enough to invite me to stand on their stage on Saturday and goof off a little bit. A few minutes before this video, […]

Could There Be A REAL Jurassic Park?

The movie loving folks over at Fandango put together a fascinating video that breaks down the real world cost of building out the fantasy land that is “Jurassic Park,” and if I’m honest, the numbers are big, but I don’t feel like they’re wildly impossible. Forgetting for a moment the […]

Brantley Gilbert Given Purple Heart By Thankful Soldier

Brantley Gilbert was a surprise guest at a Wounded Warrior project motocycle run last month, and he got a surprise of his own when Staff Sgt. Justin Patterson came up to thank him after the event.  



Looks like the boys had a beautiful day to party with all the crazies at Charlotte Motor Speedway for the Coca Cola 600 last weekend! This morning, Brad Wright called in to recap it all, from rolling in like A-list celebrities, to sponsor t-shirt fashion… you can catch that interview […]

Billboard Music Awards Made Me Love Country Even More

Man. I’m not really what you would call a sheltered person… I’ve been to Country Concert, I’ve seen things! It makes me feel particuarly “get off my lawn” sometimes, but I gotta be honest: I don’t get why everything has to be about getting **THIS CLOSE** to showing the things […]


That Little Hoop On Your Shoe Is NOT For Your Finger! WHAT?!?

I’ve been doing it all wrong, and I’m willing to bet that you have too. Have you ever noticed that your running shoes have a few more holes for laces than you really use? And what’s the deal with the little hoop back at your ankle? I always thought that […]
