  • Three AMAZING CDs out this week!!!!

    Do you have a little extra money for some terrific music? Since my job is to listen to music - I get REALLY excited when a great CD comes out - so imagine how excited I am about three amazing CDs all out this week.

  • Gary LeVox Pens a Tribute to Caylee Anthony

    So many people have been affected by the verdict in the Casey Anthony included. I can't speak for the jury and why they handed down the verdict they did - I'm certainly not here to judge them or anyone - I think there is a much greater power who will judge Casey Anthony when that times comes. Gary LeVox was one of those who was deeply affected by the outcome of that trial and he teamed up with Cledus T. Judd and Jimmy Yeary and wrote a very touching song about it called "She's Going Places" as a tribute to little Caylee.

    Here's a little more about my recent vacation (see the Part One blog for more information!);

    July 4th Weekend - not exactly Buddy's favorite holiday of the year.

  • My new show - ON DVD!!!!!!!!!!

    OH MY GOSH! I am so excited!!! You can actually buy my new show "Desperate Housewives of Sedgwick County" on DVD! I've never had one of my shows available on DVD so now I know what I will buy everyone for Christmas this year (sorry if I ruined the surprise for anyone :). Thank you so much to Mapleridge Productions for doing an awesome job.

  • MY VACATION - The Abbreviated Scrapbook Version Part ONE!

    I took a fun little vacation roadtrip with my friend Lynn. I love taking roadtrips. I think we went about 1250 miles total. And my Ford Focus gets really great gas mileage. We each only spend about $75 for gas so not bad at all.

  • What's Carol Listening To???

    As the music director - my JOB is to listen to music!!!! How I got that lucky to have a job listening to music I'll never know. But for the past week, I have been listening to one CD non-stop in my car and another non-stop in my office.

  • KFDI Night at Mosley Street Melodrama!

    This Friday is KFDI Night to see my new show "Desperate Housewives of Sedgwick County"!

  • It's HOT but you're not in a fur coat!!!!

    Look at that face!!!! That's my Buddy and I know right now he's happy at home in an air conditioned house. Probably laying on my bed looking out the window. With record-setting temperatures please keep in mind that your pets are in FUR COATS!

  • Desperate Housewives of Sedgwick County!

    My brain has been working overtime again and I've written another show for Mosley Street Melodrama. It just finished it's second week and we're getting ready for KFDI Night this Friday, June 10th.

  • Little Big Town does Lady Gaga!

    I love this series that Little Big Town does called "Scattered, Smothered and Covered" where they cover other people's songs. I was watching another video when they did this song live and they said someone asked them once if they could turned Lady Gaga into a country song. I would say it's actually more of a bluegrass feel! Can't wait to see them on Sunday. Get your River Festival button and I'll see you at the West Bank Stage! (Gates open at 3:00 - LBT goes on around 8:00).

  • Just ONE reason I love Little Big Town...

    I have always loved this song - but what a BEAUTIFUL version of the song. And at the beginning of the video you'll see that it's dedicated to the people of Alabama who were affected by the tornadoes. The harmonies are amazing. I wonder if they'll sing it on Sunday at our River Festival Show...

  • American Idol: Scotty or Lauren???? Who do you like???

    Whether you like American Idol or you don't, as a country music fan you have to admit that it's pretty exciting that the Top Two are both country singers. Today, I played both their singles as test tunes and the results were great for BOTH songs! They really were close as far as how many people graded the songs and the scores were close - but Lauren probably had a little higher score. However, more people told me they were voting for Scotty! Personally, I think the results tonight are going to be very, very close.

  • Join KFDI for Little Big Town and Kip Moore! BUT...

    ...who is Kip Moore???? Kip is a new artist and we're really excited he's on the line up. You might have heard his debut single on KFDI "Mary Was the Marrying Kind". I think you're really going to like him. And here is a little video about Kip! So watch it - find out a little about him, follow him on facebook and join KFDI at the Coleman Country Concert at the West Bank Stage, June 5th. All you need to get in is your Wichita River Festival button, well, that and a lawn chair if you'd like a place to sit. :)


    I know that a LOT of people have been trying to win our big jackpots with the KFD-I Wanna Win Free Money Contest. For me, it's totally different. I can't win the money obviously - but to be able to GIVE that money away is very exciting. When Brian and Kellie, Tony and I do the contests we never know who is going to be on the other line when it's time to play. We don't have caller i.d. and we have no control at all over who gets through.

  • Trying again!


  • The Training Continues!

    I am so proud - I successfully posted a new blog! My goal is to post a little something new every day so I was talking to our webmaster, Chris, that I would try again today and then next I would try to upload video. BIG STEP! So he said "why not today?" So this is my lesson in adding video to my blog.

  • Keith Urban LIVE CHAT!!!!!

    For all you Keith Urban fans (like me!) he's got a new single coming out on Monday AND a new CD on the way too! Monday morning he'll be doing a live chat and you can watch it right here!
