Ray Scott Performs “Ain’t Always Thirsty” On WBKR [VIDEO]

We hear it all the time..."I don't like today's country. Whatever happened to real country music"? Well, I'm not saying that country music is gone, it's just shifting in different directions. Now, I like all types of music, so this shift doesn't really bother me much. But, you'd be hard-pressed to find someone who appreciates traditional county as much as I do. So, imagine my delight when Ray Scott visited us here at WBKR and brought that big, old school, deep country voice in here.

Ray sang a few songs for us here at the station and we loved his sound. I think you'll love his traditional country sound, too! 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!
