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.

What ISIS Means To Me [Video]

I have a hunch I am not alone in this.  Every time I turn on the news or check my CNN app on my phone I see ISIS.  The new face of global terror is referred to by an acronym that takes me back to my childhood.  I am quite familiar with another Isis . . . a mystical, mighty and powerful one.  And, believe me, I much prefer mine.

Eric Paslay’s “She Don’t Love You” Live [Video]

Last night, Jaclyn and I went down to The Grand Ole Opry for a special St. Jude tribute night.  For both of us, the highlight of the night was Eric Paslay's chilling performance of his brand new single, "She Don't Love You (She's Just Lonely)."  While we don't have video of that particular performance, I did find this one on YouTube.  You just have to hear this song.  It's incredible!

What’s Cookin’?: Kenny Chesney’s Sumthin’ Blue Cocktail [Video]

Since we are celebrating the release of Kenny Chesney's The Big Revival today and having a preview party on The CB Radio Show, we're "cookin" up something a little different in our weekly What's Cookin'? segment.  In fact, today, we're not cookin' at all.  We're mixin' cocktails.  And we have a recipe inspired by Kenny Chesney's signature rum, Blue Chair Bay Rum.  It's called Sumthin' Blue and it looks incredible.  Here's how to make it.
