Dierks Bentley Shares Stage With His Daughter [VIDEO]

Well, this is about the sweetest thing I've ever seen. Dierks Bentley is one of the nicest artist I've ever met, so this adorable video doesn't come as a big surprise to me, but it's just as heartwarming. While singing "I'm Thinking Of You", his little daughter Evie joined her Daddy onstage.

Jac’s Foster Dog Lacey Needs A Forever Home [VIDEO]

For some reason, I have been on a puppy kick lately. Of course, I've always loved puppies, but in the last few weeks, I've been wanting to adopt one. Now, we all know this isn't a good idea. We already have Clyde, and as much as I love her, she's too big for me to bring another dog into our normal size home. Carsyn, as any 5 year old child does, has also been wanting a puppy.

So, I had the perfect idea... Why not foster a puppy?!? And, that's just what we did! I got a hold of our friend John from SparKy, and last night, brought Lacey to our home. She's adorable! Take a look!

Icemen Gets NHL Call Up

 

The Evansville Icemen season hasn't turned out quite like planned, but one player has reason to celebrate. Goalkeeper Chris Driedger was recalled by the NHL's Ottawa Senators. This is the second time the Senators have called up Driedger, the first being February 17th.
Driedger is expected to play tonight against the Carolina Hurricanes in Raleigh.
With Driedger recalled, the Icemen have signed Alex Vazzano to fill his roster spot. Vazzano (which is an awesome hockey name, ha!) will join the Icemen for their game Friday against the Florida Everblades.
Although the season is winding down, there is still time for you to check out the Icemen!

Chad And Jac’s Pre-Radiothon Message [VIDEO]

We say it every year, and it's completely true... Thursday and Friday are our two most favorite work days of each year. It's time for our WBKR St. Jude Radiothon. We have an amazing celebrity phone bank lined up for y'all, St. Jude families will be joining us in the studio, Jerry Morris and the Angels for Ashley cooking team are ready to go and our 2015 St. Jude song is ready for its debut. There's only one thing we weren't counting on... this winter storm.

But, as our dear friend Jerry Morris said, "Cancer doesn't stop because of the snow and we won't either." We will continue on with our St. Jude Radiothon and here's why...
