Chadwick Benefield

Word to yo mama! Thanks for reading my bio. I have hand-crafted it with love and tenderness to give you a sneak peak inside my soul. I am entering my 16th year working at WBKR and just can't believe how quickly the years have flown by. If you listen to The WBKR Waking Crew, thanks! If you don't . . . thanks. LOL! Though I work here at The Country Station, I love all kinds of music and my iPod is loaded up with everything from Thomas Rhett to Katy Perry to Emeli Sande to Kings of Leon to Garth Brooks to Kelly Clarkson to Fall Out Boy to Matchbox Twenty to that little wrecking ball Miley Cyrus. I am an avid tennis fan (I've played my whole life and it is my absolute favorite sport) and I run every single day. In fact, that's how I dropped 30 pounds in 18 months. And I love watching television to wind down. My favorite shows are all over the place just like my tastes in music. I love The Blacklist, The X Factor, Sleepy Hollow, The Biggest Loser, Dexter (though he's done), Project Runway, RuPaul's Drag Race, The Long Island Medium, Storm Chasers, American Horror Story, The Amazing Race 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.

Tyler Farr Covers AWOLNATION’s “Sail” [Video]

One of the strangest pop/rock songs of the last couple of years is "Sail" by the rock group AWOLNATION.  If the names of the group or song don't sound familiar, I am willing to bet that you have actually heard it anyway.  The song was certified triple platinum and reached #17 on the Billboard Hot 100.  And now, it's gotten a country twist thanks to "Redneck Crazy" crooner Tyler Farr, who calls "Sail" one of his favorite songs of 2013.  Recently, in Yahoo's! Ram Country acoustic series, Tyler performed a pretty cool, stripped-down version of the song.  Check it out!

Olympians Thank Their Moms in Procter & Gamble Tribute [Video]

The Winter Olympics in Sochi are just under a month away and I cannot wait.  I have always loved the emotion, drama and triumph of the Olympic Games and will routinely sit in front of my television and cheer and cry for athletes I know absolutely nothing about.  There is just something so stirring and moving about an underdog who makes the medal stand or an Olympic favorite who actually fulfills his or her destiny.  In this Procter & Gamble tribute, Olympic moms get their due as athletes pay tribute to the women who paved way for their shot at sports immortality!

Heath and Molly Did It: “Camping for Kids” in the Brutal Cold Successful

They did it!  I thought they were nuts.  Some of you thought they were crazy.  But they did it!  McLean County singing duo Heath Eric and Molly G. spent Sunday night OUTSIDE as temperatures plummeted below zero and the wind chill dipped near -30 degrees.  The duo decided to take advantage of Mother Nature's cruel January joke and turn a negative (literally) into something positive.  They decided to Camp for Kids and raise awareness for those in Western Kentucky who are cold every winter . . . because they don't have the means to buy winter coats or heat their homes.  It was a brave and risky venture, but they did it!  And the husband and wife duo called The WBKR Waking Crew this morning as they thawed to share what is was like to camp in sub-zero temperatures!
