  • Happy New Year? Not so much...

  • Dogs in snow video

    Since we have a lot of beautiful snow today, someone posted this and it makes me laugh. If only we had hills and I could teach Buddy to do this!!!

  • Check out this Keith Urban video I took!!!

    When I was in the Nashville I had the opportunity to go to a Keith Urban acoustic performance!! I immediately bypassed the food and drinks and went straight to the front of the stage. (Everyone else was still eating!) Needless to say, I had a great spot. The guy to his left is Dan Huff, his producer. I think Dan has worked on most of Keith's CDs. The guy to his right has played with Keith Urban since their Ranch days. This is his new single "Without You"...ENJOY!

  • More Chris Young...

    There are very few artists I can tell you exactly when I became a fan. I can tell you exactly when I became a Chris Young fan.I was watching Nashville Star and it was original song night and Chris Young sang "Drinkin' Me Lonely". It was one of those songs I fell in love with immediately. So when he was in the studio, I asked him to play it. It gives me goosebumps! (And that 12-pack of Blue Moon next to him was a little thank you gift from me!)

  • Check out Brett Eldredge!

    I'm really excited that Brett Eldredge is on the line up for our Listener Appreciation Show this year. (Starring CHRIS YOUNG!) As soon as I saw him perform here I was pushing for him to open the show. I just really liked him. He's a great songwriter and a great performer and I hope you like him as much as I do. I actually did something that day I never do with a new artist - I had him sing his new single live in the studio. This song really touches my heart and I knew he had written it too and I thought it would be really cool to hear him sing it - and it was.

  • St. Jude Radiothon Day One

    First off, from the bottom of my heart, thank you to everyone who donated today. I was so touched by all of the donations. I am so lucky to be in a situation to where I can help St. Jude Children's Research Hospital by being on the air and getting the word out about the amazing things they do. But it's tough! It's so hard to be in a room by yourself all day immersed in it and just hoping the right words come out; hoping that you say something that motivates someone to call and hoping that the phones in the conference room are ringing. (We can't hear them in the studio.)

  • Is it March 26th yet? Check out this video...

    As you know, I've been following Chris Young since his Nashville Star days and I am SO happy he's finally getting the recognition he deserves. He has a new CD coming out and his first single off that new CD is my new favorite song. I'm hoping he plays it like this at our Listener Appreciation's an awesome version with just him and his guitar!

  • Laughing Feet

    I love my friend Jenny Mitchell's big heart.

  • Lost and Stray Animals

    I can't tell you how much my heart was breaking when I heard about the poor dog stuck at the Canal Route this week. Despite numerous people calling Animal Control the animal wasn't rescued until Brian and Kellie put it on the air. Perhaps it was a coincidence.

  • Get ready for our Listener Appreciation Show!

    In a previous post I said how much I enjoyed Brett Eldredge's Conference Room visit. His songs were really great - and I saw this video on his website the other day and thought I would share it. I love his voice and the guy can really sing Frank Sinatra. I wonder if we could get him to sing a little Frank at our show??? That would be cool.

  • You would be proud too!

    If you know one thing about me, it's that I love animals. In particular my dog, Buddy. As many of you know, he was a little rescue puppy. I got him at seven weeks old and he was great with me, great in my house, very smart but VERY afraid of everything. Scooters, skateboards, bikes, KIDS (still is afraid of kids) and actually pretty much afraid of anyone he didn't know.

  • Keith Urban's New Video

    OK, I just might be Keith Urban's biggest fan. And yes, there are many women who would argue with me about that. I just love him a LOT! So I was very excited when I saw he released his new video today. I think "Without You" just might be my favorite Keith Urban song ever. When I first got the CD and I got to that song I probably replayed it at least ten times before I went to the next song.

  • A Beautiful Tribute

    It sure doesn't seem possible but it was 20 years ago today that Reba McEntire lost seven band members along with her tour manager in a horrific plane accident. They were leaving San Diego and the plane's wing somehow clipped some rocks near a peak of Otay Mountain. Reba had actually skipped the flight, she had been sick and her husband had advisd her to stay and get a good night's sleep and fly out the next day.

  • C'mon! $1.5 million for one DOG?????

    I recently came across a story about a guy from China who bought a Red Tibetan Mastiff for $1.5 MILLION! OK, I get that it's a rare breed but C'MON!!!!!!!!!!! That's beyond ridiculous to me. I am a big fan of getting dogs from rescue organizations. I actually really don't understand the attraction of purchasing a purebred dog anyway when there are so many dogs waiting for homes.

  • My Brett Eldredge Documentary

    Saturday was my first attempt at documentary filmmaking. I do think I have a thing or two to learn yet. Like maybe a lot to learn - but at least I had fun trying!

  • My Walker Hayes Documentary

    Maybe I should say my Walker Hayes "Documentary" because I'm really not all that good at shooting documentaries. However, I did have fun! Both Brett and Walker were so nice to our listeners - and both of them had a great time at our show that's because we had such a great audience. :)

  • Go Cubs Go!

    It's my favorite day of the year - Opening Day at Wrigley Field. I really wanted to go this year because it's so close to my birthday that it would be a fun birthday trip. BUT, then I thought it would also be fun to go to L.A. to see my darling niece, Caitlyn, who is going to fashion school there. Caitlyn won. But what I wouldn't give to be at Wrigley Field today. It's truly one of my favorite places on earth.

  • See Josh Kelley live AND help the animals!!!!!

    I am so excited!!!!!

  • We're CRUISING!!!!!!!!!!

    We'll be doing it again...

  • Looking for the Next Great Sentence!!!! You could WIN!

    As many of you know, I write plays for Mosley Street Melodrama and I'm currently smack in the middle of writing my new show "Desperate Housewives of Sedgwick County" and I'm looking for a great sentence to add to my show! Be creative - funny - wacky - odd - just keep it clean. (Nothing more that PG!) I will not only include your brilliant sentence in my next play - but EVERY cast member, all six of them, will say your sentence at one point during the show. I will even credit you!!! It will be:

Wichita, KS

SE at 12 mph
