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.

My Night with Dolly: Chad Sees Dolly Parton in Concert at the Ryman [Video]

You know you're a legend when Reba McEntire has come to see you in concert.  And that's exactly what happened Saturday night at the Ryman in Nashville.  Dolly Parton was playing her second of two sold out shows and there, in the front row in the balcony, was Reba McEntire.  There, in the third row of the balcony, was me.  And I sat there for one hour and 40 minutes just blown away by this bigger-than-life presence that had taken the stage to bring over 2,000 fans to their feet . . . to tears . . . and to the temple of country music, where legends still truly do exist.

Chad Faces Off with Bearded Dragons [Video]

My friend Staci Scott bought some Bearded Dragons last Saturday and spent the weekend setting up their terrarium and lining the bottom of it with newspapers.  And she didn't realize, until early this week, that her dragons were popping a squat on the face of one of her dear friends.  Mine!!  Yes.  She lined their living quarters with a photo of ME!  These little Jurassic twerps are now dropping deuces on my head!
