Dave Spencer Pictures #40 and 273: Superman, Lois Lane, and…Me

Recently, I noticed that I have well over 600 pictures on my phone. So I decided, "Hey, I'll share 'em with the folks." And I said it just like that, with air quotes and everything. Anyway, some pictures paint a thousand words. Some paint no words because I have no recollection of taking the picture. Which is actually kind of fun, because you make up your own story. But I do remember  #'s 40 and 273.

5 Simple Ways To Get Your Car Ready For Winter

Yesterday I was checking my anti-freeze on my vehicles making sure they had the right blend of anti-freeze & water so my engine block doesn't freeze this winter, and today I checked the tires and discovered a nail in one of my tires, I'm glad I caught that problem before it turns 5 degrees outside. So don't wait til it gets too cold outside to check over your vehicle because freezing cold temperatures will be here before you know it.

Chad’s All Up In Your OPRY BACKSTAGE GRILL!

On Tuesday, I headed down to Nashville to broadcast live at The Grand Ole Opry.  It was a really special day at the Opry!  A star-studded line-up had gathered for George Jones' 80th birthday concert celebration.  The Oak Ridge Boys were there, Jamey Johnson, Alan Jackson, Pam Tillis and more were on hand to pay tribute to The Possum and I got the pleasure of listening to some of the rehearsal performances.  It was REALLY cool!  But, let's cut the small talk and get down to the business at hand!  Not only did I get to be backstage at The Opry, I got to head over to the OPRY BACKSTAGE GRILL and stuff my big ole face.  And, yes, I had a camera to capture every delicious bite!!

Dave Spencer Relives a Memorable Vacation Out West

When I get the chance, I try to plan my vacations around a very special goal I created for myself many years ago. That goal is to visit every state in the union. I made this decision after visiting California with my family as a teen. At the time, California seemed to be a mythical place where few people like me ever got to go. Hey, I was 14. So I thought, “If I can go to California, why not everywhere else?” And this year, I got to add a few more slices of “everywhere else” to my very own American pie.
