Word to yo mama! Thanks for reading my bio. I have hand-crafted it with love and tenderness to give you a sneak peak inside my soul. I am entering my 16th year working at WBKR and just can't believe how quickly the years have flown by. If you listen to The WBKR Waking Crew, thanks! If you don't . . . thanks. LOL! Though I work here at The Country Station, I love all kinds of music and my iPod is loaded up with everything from Thomas Rhett to Katy Perry to Emeli Sande to Kings of Leon to Garth Brooks to Kelly Clarkson to Fall Out Boy to Matchbox Twenty to that little wrecking ball Miley Cyrus. I am an avid tennis fan (I've played my whole life and it is my absolute favorite sport) and I run every single day. In fact, that's how I dropped 30 pounds in 18 months. And I love watching television to wind down. My favorite shows are all over the place just like my tastes in music. I love The Blacklist, The X Factor, Sleepy Hollow, The Biggest Loser, Dexter (though he's done), Project Runway, RuPaul's Drag Race, The Long Island Medium, Storm Chasers, American Horror Story, The Amazing Race 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.

Intervention Needed: Jaclyn Has Become a Hoarder [Photos]

We need an intervention . . . STAT!  Last night, at Gaylord Opryland Resort, I had to go to Jaclyn's SUV and get our broadcast equipment.  She, naturally, had wandered off to downtown Nashville and ended up at Losers in a crop top.  I was expecting to simply use her security code, open the passenger door and retrieve our Tieline.  Turns out, my mission wasn't that simple at all.  I had no idea my dear friend, Caclyn Jaclyn, has become a hoarder.  This is ridiculous!  And, yes, I documented my findings with photos (that she's going to murder me for).  LOOK!

Thank A Farmer: WBKR Presents Kirk Kids Produce [Video]

Teenagers Steal the Night at The 2014 Battle for the Big O Finale [Video]

You have likely heard by now that The Josh Merritt Band were crowned the champions of the The Battle for the Big O on Saturday night at Diamond Lake's Good Time Theatre.  And they were INCREDIBLE!!  But a trio of teenagers gave the group (and everyone else) a huge run for their money.  They told the crowd they actually had to Google "old country" to find some songs that may be appropriate for this year's Liquid Ninja Big O Music Fest.  And, by their performance of Patsy Cline's "Walking After Midnight", I think they may have found just the right one.  WATCH!

What Is Time?: Jaclyn Debuts New Song at Battle for the Big O [Video]

Jaclyn took the stage at Saturday's finale of The Battle for the Big O to perform an original song by Jamie Smith.  We met Jamie, a songwriter from Meade County, Kentucky, during our open audition circuit.  We LOVED his music and invited him to come to the finale as a special guest.  See, until Saturday night, Jamie had never had one of his original songs performed by someone else.  So, we cut Jaclyn loose on his song "What Is Time?" and she absolutely slayed it.  THIS is beautiful.  Watch!
