For years I thought Darius Rucker was the leader of the band, Hootie and the Blowfish. Now, we find that even though he co-founded the group, guitarist Mark Bryan was the boss. All Darius did was sing. Rucker told CMT.com,"To be honest with you, wh

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."

Faith Hill’s Sunday Night Football Successor Named

Faith Hill announced last month that her intro duties for Sunday Night Football would be ending after six seasons. As a big football fan, I've grown accustom to watching Faith kick off every Sunday night game. And, to be honest, I sing along with her and get up and dance too! So, for me to think of anyone else but Faith performing "Waiting All Day For Sunday Night', I get a little concerned. But, they've recently announced who her replacement is, have you heard?!? SHE is a fellow country music superstar AND has equally hot legs! Any guesses??

My New Non-Country Obsession: Emeli Sande [Video]

Today on Confessions of a Country Music DJ!  I never buy CD's.  Seriously, I really don't.  The summer I graduated high school I worked at Disc Jockey inside Towne Square Mall and I think I gave just about every paycheck back to Terry Woodward.  I used to buy CD's all the time and then, with the advent of ITunes, stopped cold in my tracks. ITunes is to music what Whitman's was to the Sampler, right?   But, the other day, I caved and bought my first CD in years.  And it wasn't country (insert gasp)!  And it's a CD that is setting HUGE records in the UK!  It's not even American (insert another gasp)!  In fact, Emeli Sande (who is my new non-country obsession and my favorite new Brit) just broke a record that was held by The Beatles for nearly five decades . . .

Chad’s Favorite Versions of “Always on My Mind” [Video]

Country music icon, Willie Nelson, is coming to The Centre in Evansville TONIGHT.  Willie  is bringing his Willie Nelson & Family tour to town and we have been celebrating over the last couple of months with ticket giveaways and more.  A few weeks ago, we had a TAD POLL about Willie during The WBKR Waking Crew.  And that poll was . . . What is YOUR favorite Willie Nelson song?  I don't have to hesitate a second to name mine.  It's Willie's classic "Always on My Mind."  And, I must say, there are several versions of that song I absolutely love.  While Brenda Lee recorded the original version, it's a handful of covers that are on my mind.  Check these out.
