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.

Bizarre Photo of Chad Gets Tweeted by Country Music Tattle Tale [Photo]

What can I say?  We were delirious.  Jaclyn and I had been in Nashville for two straight days.  We had been on the air for 15 hours covering every single inch of the 2014 CMA Music Festival.  And we just needed to sit down inside the Nashville Convention Center for a few minutes, recharge our phones and our legs.  But that's when it hit me.  I saw an opportunity to do something really silly and I did it.  I just didn't realize that some writers for the website Country Music Tattle Tale were watching me do it.  LOOK!
