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.

Mystery Surrounds Major Announcement at Holiday World [Video]

The truth is out there.  Somewhere.  And just about every coaster enthusiast and amusement park buff has a theory about what Holiday World's big announcement is going to be.  Yep!  In May, the park launched a brand new website called 66 Days at Sea and that website serves as a countdown to Thursday, July 24th, when officials at Holiday World are set to make a MAJOR announcement.  But, so far, they are only giving extremely vague hints as to what that announcement may be.  But check out this video.  Two Indiana teenagers named Jordan and Alec have poured over every detail of every single clue and they think they're onto something.

Fun Rising Star App Allows You to Play Along at Home [Photos]

Okay!  I'm hooked.  I called Nashville Kat in the middle of last night's premiere of Rising Star and told her, "I'm already behaving like a crack addict."  I like the show, but I LOVE the Rising Star app.  It literally allows us to watch and vote in real time.  Yep!  We are in full control of the singers' destinies.  And the app has some other cool features too.  LOOK!

Three Guys in Stilettos Dance an Insane Beyonce Medley [Video]

Okay.  I'm not gonna lie.  Last year, I thought I pretty much killed my Beyonce "Single Ladies"  routine at the Lanham Brothers Jamboree.  But then I saw THIS.  You have to check out this awesome video from Yanis Marshall Choreography.  These three guys, decked out in stiletto-heels no less, absolutely rock it out.  This is ridiculous!!  I got some moves, but apparently I could use a few more.

Thousands of Ducks Block Traffic in Thailand [Video]

I get irritated when I drive down Scherm Road in Owensboro and there are birds in the street.  They are flipping NUTS over there near that new retention pond.  But just imagine how this guy felt!  He was driving in Thailand when thousands of ducks swarmed into the street and refused to get out of the way.  This is hilarious and a reminder that quack is whack!

Mat Franco Performs Coolest Card Trick Ever on America’s Got Talent [Video]

I am not sure I have ever shared this, but I am a HUGE fan of magic shows.  In fact, I have been since I saw David Copperfield back in the day at Vanderburgh Auditorium in Evansville.  (Yes, I know that reference completely dates me and shows my age.  LOL!) I have seen lots of magic shows and lots of tricks.  But last night on America's Got Talent, I saw the coolest card trick I have ever seen courtesy of self-taught magician Mat Franco.  This will blow your mind!
