Watch Jac Perform “It’s Live”, a Chad Benefield Original [VIDEO]

Every now and then, we'll find an old video on the station iPad that we forgot about. Last week, I was cleaning out our storage and came across this video from our Denim and Diamonds St. Jude fundraiser concert from January.

Here's a live performance of me singing "It's Live". Chad wrote this one a few years back and we changed it up a bit last winter. You'll hear this song on my next album that hopefully, I'll record this summer.

Let us know what you think!

Dave Spencer’s Picks for the Best Written ‘Mother/Mama’ Songs [VIDEO]

If there's a staple in country music outside of, say, the "drinking" song, it's the "mama" song. There are tons of them. But there are three that I consider to be the most powerful of the bunch, and not all of them will put a smile on your face.

Chad’s List of the Five Worst Songs Ever Recorded [Video]

I was sitting in Pizza Roma on Carter Road Saturday night enjoying my delicious Hot Cheese Sticks and Baked Spaghetti.  About that time the song "Easy" by Lionel Richie & The Commodores started to play on the satellite radio.  I absolutely HATE that song and I immediately starting getting the bubble guts.  I can't tell you why.  I have absolutely no specific explanation for it.  But the song drives me up a wall and I literally have a physical reaction to it. Maybe something traumatic happened to me as a child while Lionel Richie was singing.  It's possible.  But the mere thought of that song makes my skin crawl like I'm in the movie Scanners or Bug with Ashley Judd.  Then it hit me.  There are other songs that have the same effect on me and I should share them as a public service.  So, here they are!  The Worst Five Songs Ever.  The five songs that make me want to take an ice pick and Sharon Stone my ear drums!

Jac’s Top Five Vintage Wish List for Summer of 2014

So, I've picked up a new hobby. Although I've never been accused of being an "old soul," certain vintage things are appealing to me. While visiting some friends at Consignment Connection the other day I came across an old Loretta Lynn record.

PS - She is gorgeous.
PPS - She DID NOT have on a 1990 prom dress!

My discovery of this little treasure has sparked a new found interest...
