Chadwick Benefield

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.

Bizarre Photo of Chad Gets Tweeted by Country Music Tattle Tale [Photo]

What can I say?  We were delirious.  Jaclyn and I had been in Nashville for two straight days.  We had been on the air for 15 hours covering every single inch of the 2014 CMA Music Festival.  And we just needed to sit down inside the Nashville Convention Center for a few minutes, recharge our phones and our legs.  But that's when it hit me.  I saw an opportunity to do something really silly and I did it.  I just didn't realize that some writers for the website Country Music Tattle Tale were watching me do it.  LOOK!
