Chadwick Benefield

Chad here! After 9 years of being one half of The WBKR Waking Crew, I am now one half of the all-new CB Radio Show here on WBKR! Our show runs 6a-9am CST Monday through Friday and I also co-host The BKR's Dozen Countdown with Dave Spencer each Saturday morning at 8am. In addition to flapping my lips on the air, I emcee a variety of events all over the state of Kentucky. I emcee charity functions, beauty pageants and dance competitions. I love country music. In fact, I love all kids of music. I listen to everything from Justin Moore to Katy Perry to Sam Smith to David Nail to Kings of Leon to Garth Brooks to Kelly Clarkson to J Hud and Pitbull. I love tennis, running, and reality television. When I am not working I am likely on the sectional watching The Blacklist, Project Runway, The Biggest Loser, American Horror Story, and pretty much anything on The Tennis Channel or ESPN. I vacation . . . a lot! I love Mexico and any place I can get to on a cruise ship.

When Your 4-Year-Old Gives Herself a Haircut [Photos]

Meet Jovie Lee Brice (not named after the country singer, by the way).  Until tonight, Jovie had never had a haircut.  That is until she disappeared into the bathroom while her parents were cooking dinner and cut off all of her hair on one side.  LOL!  Her mother Stephanie was horrified and had a mental meltdown. See, she had an idea of how Jovie's first haircut would go .  . . and this certainly wasn't it.  She hardly wanted her daughter looking like she'd been attacked by Edward Scissorhands.  So, she called her hairstylist and Kevin saved the day.  And the kid's hair.  Here are the photos!

What’s Killing Us: Map Shows ‘Most Distinctive’ Causes of Death State by State

Well, this is depressing.  And it's alarming.  And you should read it.  The New York State Cancer Registry (in conjunction with the CDC) has just published a map that shows the "most distinctive" causes of death for each state in the nation.  Researchers Francis Boscoe, PhD and Eva Pradham, MPH studied deaths and the links/causes of those deaths from 2001 to 2010.  Here's a look at the map and what's killing us here in the tristate.

Remembering Opryland USA: The Home of American Music [Video]

I'm not sure why, but I have been thinking about (and missing) Opryland a bunch.  I was feeling nostalgic last week and even spent Mother's Day at my mom's house going through old photos to see if I could find some old pics from the park.  I know there is a photo of me somewhere and, in it, I'm standing with Opryland's musical mascots- Johnny Guitar, Delilah Dulcimer and Yancy Banjo.  I absolutely LOVED Opryland and some of my greatest memories of childhood stem from that theme park.  To getting absolutely soaked with my childhood best friend Kevin Morris on the Grizzly River Rampage, to throwing a crying fit and refusing to ride the Wabash Cannonball with my grandfather, to freaking out over how cool the special effects were in the Angle Inn.  I miss Opryland and decided to put together this Tennessee Waltz down memory lane.
