Is Jaclyn Over Luke Bryan? [VIDEO]

I have been debating over the last few days on whether or not I was going to make a video for Luke. Yes, Luke Bryan... My baby-daddy, my once-upon-a-time boo, that Luke. Anyone that knows me or has ever listened to my Midday Show knows that I love Luke. (In a completely harmless fan-type of love, of course.)  We go way back to his "Country Man" days, back in 2008. But, on Tuesday, he broke my heart.

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...

The End Of An Era: Fox Cancels ‘American Idol’ [VIDEO]

I had no intention of ever watching 'American Idol'. It wasn't until a co-worker of mine started telling me all about it. Plus, we had received this 8"x11" promotional poster of the top 10; by the time I started watching the top 10 had been whittled down to 8 I think. Well, as soon as I saw Kelly Clarkson sing, I was hooked and I knew she would win season 1.

My Interview With Travis Tritt [VIDEO]

This past weekend, I had a blast covering the Kentucky Derby! I got to sample drinks, wear big hats and bet on some ponies! I also got to chat with some celebrities, including one of my favorite country artist... Travis Tritt!

Now, we were at the Fillies and Stallions party and it was very, very late when Mr. Tritt and his beautiful wife arrived. (Basically, don't judge me on this interview. It was really late and I had an adult beverage or two before, ha!) Take a look and listen as Travis and I chat about how hot his wife is, some of his favorite songs to perform and his upcoming show at the Big O Music Fest.

Hunter Hayes Covers Sam Smith’s I’m Not The Only One [Video]

I am a huge fan of pop singer Sam Smith.  In fact, I was sitting just a few feet from the stage late last year when he played the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville for the first time.  (Side note: Tim McGraw is a big fan too and took his daughter to see Sam).  And now, country artist Hunter Hayes has decided to tackle a Sam Smith song.  Appearing on Pop Shack TV, Hunter covered Sam's song "I'm Not the Only One."  See what you think?
