Brett Eldredge Makes Good On Dangerous Promise! [PHOTO]

"Me and my big mouth"... I find myself saying this a lot, and I'm guessing Brett Eldredge recently said the same thing, ha! Brett announced on social media a while back that if "Beat Of The Music", a recent single, went Number 1, he'd go swimming with the sharks.

Well, "Beat Of The Music" DID go number 1... did Brett keep his promise?

Watch and see what Erin Grant does.

What You Think About Pageants Is All Wrong

I have the pleasure of hosting the 2014 Miss Daviess County beauty pageant Friday night at the Hines Center. It's no secret that I grew up in the pageant circle. More when I was younger, but I come from a pageant family. I can remember having viewing parties of Miss America, each of us having our own score sheets and comparing with the actual winners. Until high school, I trained to compete in Miss Tennessee. (Cheerleading and singing won that fight, ha.) So, it's a natural fit for me to host the pageant.

Take a look for yourself and see how that went...
