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.

I know a bunch of people who are going to want one of these.  My friend David Stone snagged this sign for me as a Christmas present.  And I absolutely love it.  It's a great tribute to Thruston Elementary (where I went to school) and the community I grew up in.  Wanna know where to get one?

How to Throw a Cookbook-Inspired Christmas Party [Photos]

Here's an idea I came up with for Christmas and I think you're gonna love it.  My mother always hosts our family's Christmas Eve celebration and I always do all the cooking at her house.  But, this year, because of my vacation, I didn't have a lot of time to plan my menu.  As a matter of fact, the morning of December 23rd, I still hadn't planned it.  LOL!  And I hadn't shopped for my Dirty Santa gifts either.  So I went to Ollie's, stumbled across the cookbooks and Ka-Pow!  The light bulb went off.  I was going to theme my menu around a cookbook.  And I did!  Southern Living's Country Music's Greatest Eats presented by CMT!
