Jaclyn Graves

I was born in Jackson, TN, but grew up Milan, TN and Mayfield, KY. Ever since I can remember, I've loved the stage. I started singing in public at the age of six at the First Baptist Church in Milan. When I got my first solo, my Mom said, “I didn’t even know she liked to sing!” Ha! I've been blessed to perform on many stages in my life and have even opened for Jake Owen, Eric Church, Gary Allan, Justin Moore, Kellie Pickler, Rodney Atkins, Montgomery Gentry and more. One of the coolest things I've been able to do is to sing (in Latin!) at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, France. Such a beautiful place and an unforgettable experience. I am a proud graduate of Western Kentucky University (Go Tops!) and a lifelong member of Kappa Delta sorority. As most of you know, I'm s HUGE sports fan! I even worked with the WKU men’s basketball team for 3 ½ years while at Western. Being that I grew up in Tennessee, I'm a Vols fan and a Titans girl! After living in Owensboro for only two weeks, I met Chad. (I knew no one, so I wasn't picky, ha!) We, obviously became instant friends and he convinced me to work here at WBKR. I started here on The Morning Show with Chad and Moon, but after my sweet and sassy Carsyn was born, early mornings just weren't going to cut it! I love the Midday Show and talking with y'all day after day. As you know, my Carsyn is my world and I appreciate y'all letting my go on and on about her! I LOVE country music... from Waylon to the Randy Rogers Band, my baby-daddy Luke and the Florida Georgia Line! Being a part of our community thru WBKR is my favorite part of my job! Y'all are the best listeners ever!

Why I Allowed Carsyn To Be Late For School Today

I know I'm not the only person who rushes out of the house every morning, with only minutes to spare. Every dang day... Where's your backpack? Put on your coat! Did you really brush your teeth? Get your shoes on! Drives me bonkers.

Today, as we are scrambling to get everything together, I decided that I was over it. Over doing everything for my five year-old child. She couldn't find a pair of matching shoes and starting blaming it on me. Oh, no, you didn't. I mean, if you are capable of navigating your way around my iPhone, you can surely find your left red boot.

So,  I quit.

OPD Citizens Academy, More Than I Expected

It's been a few weeks since my graduation from the Owensboro Police Department's Citizens Academy and I got our class photo picture from our instructor. I've always had an interest in law enforcement and knew I just had to attend the Citizens Academy when it began in August. Now, even thou I was excited, the 12 week course seemed a little much at first. Now that it's over, we were all wanting more time with the class.

Here are some of the most impressive things I took away from my short time with the OPD.
