Make It or Break It Monday: Tyler Farr’s “Redneck Crazy” [Video]

For the last couple of weeks I have a had a new feature on The WBKR Waking Crew called Make It or Break It Monday!  Basically, I play a new song and you guys let me know whether the song will Make It or if we should Break It.  This week, I am putting Tyler Farr's "Redneck Crazy" up here at WBKR.com so you can listen and let me know.  I can't give you too many details (because I'll be waterboarded or have really unfortunate body parts hooked up to jumper cables), but a good friend of mine asked me to do this for a reason.  So, I need your help, Gang. Take a listen to this song and let me know . . . do we Make It or Break It?

Shoulda Been a Hit: Catherine Britt & Elton John’s “Where We Both Say Goodbye” [Video]

What do you get when you cross one country-singing Australian beauty and a pop/rock music legend?  Well, on paper, you should get a smash duet.  And Dave Spencer and I, back in 2005, were both convinced that "Where We Both Say Goodbye" was going to be just that.  Catherine Britt was having chart success back home in the Land Down Under and, with her move to Nashville, she was primed for a run at the U.S. charts.  Armed with the legendary pipes of Elton John and what seemed to be the right song, Britt seemed poised to break onto the scene in a big way.  Only it didn't happen . . . at all.

JoDee Messina Asks Fans For Help To Be “Unbreakable” [VIDEO]

I had the pleasure of spending time with Jo Dee Messina last August at the Big O Music Fest. She was such a nice, genuine person and it really made my respect for her as an artist and an individual grow. Since then, I've been following her on Twitter. This past week, I noticed that she was really excited about a project she was working on alongside of Alyssa Bonagura. She was asking her Twitter followers to take photos of themselves with words such as "Dig Deep", "Stronger" and "Unbreakable", just to name a few.

Well, the waiting is over and the finished project is here! She and Alyssa wrote a great song, "Unbreakable", made an inspiring video and put the fan pictures in it.

Be one of the first to take a look at this uplifting project!
