Local Musician To Play With Country Legends

Jim Heep is an Owensboro resident with a really awesome job... he's a musician. Now, I may be a little bias because I've been lucky enough to have Jim play for me on occasion, but I feel like he's one of the best steel guitar players I've seen. And, I know that I'm not the only one who feels that way. Locally, he's played for myself, Insulated and Brasher Bogue, just to name a few. He's also had the pleasure of playing on country music's greatest stages, The Grand Ole Opry and The Ryman Auditorium. He most recently has been on the road with newcomer Chris Janson, but now he'll be taking the stage with a few country music legends.

Construction Workers Discuss Miley Cyrus’ Wrecking Ball [Video]

Last night, Miley Cyrus came into the American Music Awards like a wrecking ball.  Like it or not, Miley is one of the biggest acts in music these days.  Yes, her music is actually good, but it's often overshadowed by her antics.  She twerked up the VMA's and did unspeakable things with a foam finger (I thought you were supposed to use those to cheer on your favorite college sports team, but what do I know?).  She followed up the VMA stunt by going commando at a construction site and licking a sledgehammer like it was a Tootsie Roll Pop!  LOL!  In fact, it's the latter than inspired THIS video.  Watch what happens when construction workers get a glimpse of Miley, her sledgehammer and that now famous wrecking ball.

Kelly Clarkson’s Christmas Lyric Video for “Underneath the Tree” [Video]

Was there any doubt that I was going to blog about Kelly Clarkson's Christmas CD at some point?  Wrapped in Red was released one week ago and it took me all of about two and half seconds to preview it on iTunes.  And, to no one's surprise, I think it's awesome.  And what I particularly like about the album is the mix of classic Christmas songs with some high energy new tracks like "Underneath the Tree."  That song wears its Mariah "All I Want for Christmas is You" Carey influences on its stocking feet.  It's up-tempo, fun and Clarkson, naturally, sings the holy mistletoe out of it.  Here's the official lyric video . . .

Luke Bryan Steps In, Breaks Up Fight at His Concert [VIDEO]

Whoever these two knuckleheads are who got into the dust-up at the Luke Bryan concert should be thankful it was a LUKE BRYAN concert and not a Tim McGraw concert. Tim just jumps in there and tosses you out. Luke goes at it differently.
