Is it just me, or is it hard to get excited about eating out when you can create something just as good, if not better at home for a fraction of the price? Don't get me wrong, I enjoy someone else doing all the work in the kitchen for a change. But when I'm shelling out 3 or 4 times what it would cost for me to make the exact same dish at home and actually season it properly and serve it at the correct temp, I tend to get a little "per-turbed" ... as my mother would call it. (I'm not even sure if that is word).
I will have to say that being at Intrust Bank Arena while during a tornado warning was going on was something I certainly had nevered experienced. Usually you experience something like that with your family in a basement or someplace you've taken shelter but being someplace with thousands of other people was so surreal. I was impressed how calm everyone was. I was very lucky to be with a couple of my record guys who work with Miranda, Chris and Jerrod's labels so they took me back stage to watch the radar - I later realized we were in Jerrod Niemann's dressing room.
Have you watched this about Caine and his do-it-yourself video? It really touched my heart. They've raised a lot of money too to help put this incredible boy through college. It's about ten minutes long - but it's definitely worth taking ten minutes to watch it. It makes you feel like there are lots of good people in this world!
Everytime I see one of these videos with soldiers coming home and seeing their dogs, I always get all choked up. I like this video I saw from The Today Show because they talk to the couple and you can tell just how much they love their dog:
Tony visits Doc's Steakhouse in Wichita Kansas. Docs is known for their "garlic salad", great steaks and.... The ghost of Doc Himself. Some believe that the original owner himself is returning to the restaurant that bears his name almost 30 years after his death.
We are so excited to have Dustin Lynch on our Listener Appreciation Show line up. As the music director, I have the pleasure of meeting lots of new artists and when we saw Dustin on his bus I remember my boss, Beverlee, and I walking back into our building talking about how great he'd be on the Listener Appreciation Show! AND IT HAPPENED! I can't wait for you to see him too. He's a terrific songwriter. All the tickets are free, but you do need one so make sure to get one and join us April 28th at Charles Koch Arena.
One thing is for sure - you will never hear me complain about my job. I love music and one of my favorite parts of my job is hearing new music and meeting new artists. That's why I love having artists come by to perform for us. Recently, Jon Pardi stopped in and he blew me away. He's a great songwriter and (in my humble opinion) has everything in place to really make it in this business. Check out his Conference Room performance
I have to tell you - Edens Edge was absolutely fantastic last week at the Humane Society. If you ever get a chance to go see them, please do. You'll love them. Hannah has (I think) one of the best voices in country music today. And then add in Dean and Cherrill and they will blow you away too. The playing is exceptional, the harmonies are exceptional the chemistry between the three is fantastic.
