Ray Scott Performs “Ain’t Always Thirsty” On WBKR [VIDEO]

We hear it all the time..."I don't like today's country. Whatever happened to real country music"? Well, I'm not saying that country music is gone, it's just shifting in different directions. Now, I like all types of music, so this shift doesn't really bother me much. But, you'd be hard-pressed to find someone who appreciates traditional county as much as I do. So, imagine my delight when Ray Scott visited us here at WBKR and brought that big, old school, deep country voice in here.

Ray sang a few songs for us here at the station and we loved his sound. I think you'll love his traditional country sound, too! Take a look...

“Celebrities” Help Ohio County Middle School Get Ready For K-Prep Testing [VIDEO]

There's only one thing I remember about the end of the school year, TESTS! In grade school, we used to take achievement tests. They were just booklets of multiple choice questions. It wasn't until I got to high school when testing became a little more serious. Since then, KERA tests have gone away and K-Prep tests are now the norm. The students and staff of Ohio Co. Middle School (one of my alma maters!) decided to get everyone ready with the help of some pretty famous folks, WATCH!

My Interview With Travis Tritt [VIDEO]

This past weekend, I had a blast covering the Kentucky Derby! I got to sample drinks, wear big hats and bet on some ponies! I also got to chat with some celebrities, including one of my favorite country artist... Travis Tritt!

Now, we were at the Fillies and Stallions party and it was very, very late when Mr. Tritt and his beautiful wife arrived. (Basically, don't judge me on this interview. It was really late and I had an adult beverage or two before, ha!) Take a look and listen as Travis and I chat about how hot his wife is, some of his favorite songs to perform and his upcoming show at the Big O Music Fest.
