Former WBKR Intern’s Cover of Poison’s “Every Rose Has Its Thorn” [Video]

It's been a couple of years since Whitney Merritt spent her high school year at Owensboro High School interning here at the WBKR studios.  And since then, she's been busy working and going to school and pursuing her real passion- singing.  In the last couple of years, Whitney has auditioned for The X Factor (she got a call back) and The Voice and she's been playing guitar and posting videos on YouTube.  We thought we'd share one with you.  Check this out.  In this clip, Whitney is taking on one of our absolute favorite songs of the 1980's . . . Poison's "Every Rose Has Its Thorn."  See what you think!

Co-writer Of Keith Urban’s ‘Cop Car’ Upset?

I've heard of Sam Hunt thru social media and he was featured in one of Dave Spencer's 'Clash In The Country'. I liked his sound, he is entertaining on Twitter and I'll be honest... he's easy on the eyes. (Oh, like you didn't see that coming, ha!)

Monday afternoon thou, he tweeted something that reaaaaally caught my attention. He is a great songwriter and has co-written some that you'd be familiar with. It appears that Keith Urban's latest single, 'Cop Car' is one of those and I'm not sure what happened, but he doesn't seem real happy about it!

Randy Houser’s ‘Goodnight Kiss’ [VIDEO]

I've loved Randy Houser's latest single from the first second I heard it. 'Goodnight Kiss' is one of my favorite songs that we're playing right now and the video is just as good!

It almost mirrors a date from "The Bachelor"... perfectly set up planning on the guy's part and what girl doesn't like dates planned out for her?!?

Check it out!

Maggie Rose is a fresh face in today's country and when this video scrolled down my Twitter feed, I couldn't watch it fast enough. Check out her beautiful version of the pop hit... you'll love it!

Kip Moore Debuts ‘Young Love’ [VIDEO]

I wasn't quite sure how Kip Moore would follow up with his smash hit 'Hey, Pretty Girl'. It's pretty much the song that every girl wants that one guy to sing for her, right ladies?!? Well, his latest single 'Young Love' is the perfect song to follow the fabulous 7th grade slow-dance. At least in my opinion it is.

'Young Love' takes us all back to our high-school love. You know which one I'm talking about... That relationship where you just knew you'd be together forever. It was probably your first love. That guy or girl that when you see them today, you're heart still drops into your stomach. Ahhh... young love. (Get it?!?!)

Well, Kip released the video for 'Young Love' and it couldn't be more perfect. Take a look...

Tyler Farr Covers AWOLNATION’s “Sail” [Video]

One of the strangest pop/rock songs of the last couple of years is "Sail" by the rock group AWOLNATION.  If the names of the group or song don't sound familiar, I am willing to bet that you have actually heard it anyway.  The song was certified triple platinum and reached #17 on the Billboard Hot 100.  And now, it's gotten a country twist thanks to "Redneck Crazy" crooner Tyler Farr, who calls "Sail" one of his favorite songs of 2013.  Recently, in Yahoo's! Ram Country acoustic series, Tyler performed a pretty cool, stripped-down version of the song.  Check it out!

Moon Reflects on Death of Phil Everly

As you know by now, Phil Everly (pictured left, above), one-half of the famous Everly Brothers passed away from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease on Friday, January 3. He was 74. For me, his passing is another departing link to the fabulous fifties where country, blues and pop merged into Rock 'N Roll. It was the music of my life.
