63-year-old David Whipple has kept a McDonald's burger for 14 years -- and it looks exactly the same as it did the day he bought it! David said he meant to keep the burger for a month to educate people on how enzymes worked, but he forgot about it. That was 14-years ago.

David Whipple says he plans to will the hamburger to his grandchildren.

He is being called a "comedy genius." Watch Jack's incredible performance below:
Eric Church is so cool. He is releasing a special vinyl album for Record Store Day Saturday, 4/20. And, he asked that the vinyl on a second special vinyl record included be infused with Chief whiskey. How do they do that? Eric made a video to show just how that was done. Love it.
Brad Paisley found himself in an unfamiliar role last week. He was the subject of controversy over his song, Accidental Racist, with LL Cool J featured on his new cd Wheelhouse. He called Brian and I on Wednesday to thank country radio for understanding what the song was trying to say.
Between the ice and the snow this spring, it's been slighly difficult to fire up the grill and enjoy some time outside. However, on those handful of beautiful days, I have managed to do a little grilling!
