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.

Damien Rice Rocks the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville [Video]

I am trying to remember if I have ever cried at a concert.  And, I don't think I ever have.  Well, until Wednesday night, when I saw Damien Rice in concert at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville.  I have been a huge fan since I heard Damien singing "The Blower's Daughter" in the opening frames on the movie Closer, starring Julia Roberts, Jude Law, Clive Owen and Natalie Portman.  That is one of my favorite songs EVER and it made me an immediate fan of the man who wrote and sang it.  And, finally, last Wednesday, I had the chance to see Damien Rice live for the first time.  And he was absolutely hypnotic.  I could not take my eyes off him.
