Chad’s Worst Five Country Songs of 2013

Okay.  I've published my choices for the Top 10 Country Songs of 2013, so it's only fair that I pick my five worst, right?  And, I know.  I know.  Some of you will completely disagree and that's perfectly fine.  Some songs that you absolutely love will, quite possibly, make this list.  If that happens, all I can do is say I'm jealous.  You were lucky enough to find something positive hidden deep inside a steaming pile of mashed up music mess.  LOL!  So, here we go.  Let the disagreements begin.  I proudly present . . .

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.
