This is pretty cool.  You guys are familiar with our radio jingles.  In fact, we catch you all singing along with them from time to time and we love it.  "We wanna be your Country Station, WBKR!"  Well, we just got in a new batch of jingles and are pumped that Max T. Barnes, a songwriter with nine country #1's is playing guitar on them.  Here's a quick look at the studio session where he laid down the tracks.  And, this will give you an idea of what creating a radio jingle looks like.  It's awesome!

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.

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.

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?
