Jake Owen Rips Pants On Stage, Finishes Set Shirtless [VIDEO]

Ladies, this is not a dream... I have a video of Jake Owen singing shirtless! Yes, your Monday just turned into a Friday!

This past weekend at a show in Charleston, Jake's pants ripped...on stage! As he tweeted, he was underwear-less. Thanks to some quick thinking from his crew, they just taped his shirt up around his, ummm, problem area and let him finish his set! I knew if I was patient enough, visual evidence was come up... boy was I right!

Check out this video of Jake finishing his set, shirtless!

Former Goldie’s Survivor Champion Michael Woosley Releases New Song [Video]

Here at WBKR, we get asked all the time about Goldie's Survivor, our long-running talent contest at Goldie's.  It was a blend of Survivor and American Idol and hundreds of folks each year battled to try and make the 10-week finals.  The contest was basically reality television on stage and the show sold out virtually every week due to equal parts of talent and on-stage drama.  We often get asked how our former champions are doing.  Season Two champion Teresa Cook continues to make fans as Kizzy.  Season Three champion Shannon Sellers lives in Nashville now.  Season Five champion Rollie Pike later went on to win the Battle for The Big O and is with us each year for our St. Jude Radiothon.  And, now, we're hearing from Season 6 champion Michael Woosley, who just released a new duet called "Watch Me."  Check it out!

Opry Legend Jim Ed Brown Releases New Single “In Style Again”

On Tuesday night, Jim Ed Brown, like he has for fifty years, stood in the famed circle at The Grand Ole Opry.  He announced to the crowd that, for the first time in a long time, he was releasing a new single and he was doing it at the age of 79.  See, that's the ebb and flow of any career, but particularly a career in popular music.  Over the course of three decades (the 50's, 60's and 70's), Jim Ed Brown was a proven hitmaker.  But strings of hits just don't last forever.  While the hands on the clock refuse to quit spinning,  the record players and the radio stations often times stop the "spinning" in its tracks.  They routinely start "spinning" tunes from younger artists, the next generation of hitmakers.  But this country music staple, this Grand Ole Opry icon, is still at it . . . with a brand new song in which he professes "I'd like to be in style again someday."
