Chadwick Benefield

Chad here! After 11 years of being one half of The WBKR Waking Crew and The CB Radio Show, I am now one half of the all-new Morning Drive on 92.5 with Chad & Angel. Our show runs 6a-10am 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 and reality television. When I am not working I am likely on the sectional watching America's Got Talent, 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. I live in Owensboro with Kevin, Dolly, Ellie and a cat named Oprah.

A New Generation of Brennans Take the Stage at Goldie’s [Video]

Katie Brennan and her brother Jon basically grew up at Goldie's Best Little Opryhouse in downtown Owensboro.  For years, they took the stage, weekend after weekend, and sang their hearts out for the crowd.  While Goldie's is officially closed, the former cast reunites every New Year's Eve at RiverPark Center to relive their greatest hits and ring in the New Year in front of a sold-out crowd.  The star of the show's the same, of course.  And a lot of former cast members are still in the mix as well.  But there are some notable changes.  Jon Brennan's still around.  His younger sister, Katie, is married now and she's no longer officially a "Brennan."  She's a "Herron".  And she and her husband Paul have some budding entertainers on their hands.  Yes.  They're raising a new generation of "guys and girls that make up the Goldie's show!"

Remember When Kelly Clarkson Sang with Rascal Flatts? [Video]

This morning on The Morning Drive we played "What Hurts the Most" by Rascal Flatts.  It is, by far, my absolute favorite Rascal Flatts song.  And my all-time favorite performance of that song was when the guys invited Kelly Clarkson to sing it with them.  Remember this?
