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 […]


Social Media Feeds That Don’t Suck The Life Out Of You

You’ve been there, haven’t you? You’re scrolling through your Facebook/Twitter/Pinterest/Instagram/whateverelse and you realize you’re not feeling anything. You’re just mindlessly scrolling… scrolling… scrolling… and before you know it, 30 minutes have gone by and dinner’s on fire, the dog jumped the fence, and you can’t be completely certain that you […]


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 […]
