Another WBKR Battle for The Big O Finalist Goes Deep on American Idol [Video]

In 2013, two former Battle for The Big O finalists made it deep into American Idol.  Owensboro's Jenny Beth Willis was one of the show's Top 20 girls.  And Paul Jolley, who was a finalist in our competition two years ago, made it all the way to the Idol Top 10 and spent the summer on tour with his fellow finalists.  This season, yet another contestant with ties to our annual talent competition is poised to make a run deep in the show.  Check out Brandy Neelly, who last year joined our auditions at Towne Square Mall and power-belted her way into the finals.

Frankie Ballard’s Debut Album Out Today [VIDEO]

I've been a fan of Frankie Ballard since I played a show with him here in Owensboro at The Sports Center a few years back. He's such a cool dude and an amazing artist. Not to mention a fabulous guitar-player and pretty easy on the eyes!

This album, 'Sunshine and Whiskey' has been in the works for two years and is available at all outlets today. The album features his current single and Top Ten hit, 'Helluva Life'. I happened to stumble across the video for it and wanted to share it with y'all. It focuses on the beauty of everyday things in life and I really like it!

The ONLY Way To Walk Your Dog In This Weather [VIDEO]

It's cold outside. Like wear thirteen layers just to take the trash out cold. So, I'm pretty sure that I'm not the only one who's not taking their dog for a walk these days. Turns out a girlfriend of mine is a much better fur-Mommy than I am. (Shocker, ha!)

Her sweet dog Zoe LOVES to go for runs. They normally run three to four miles a day, but with the ice covering the roads, Momma's Nike's just don't have the footing for her to run. So, she found an alternate way to take Zoe for her daily run.

Check it out!

WBKR and Southern Star Present: The Polar Bear PUSH [Video]

12 degrees.  That's how cold the water was Saturday for the 2014 Polar Bear Plunge.  12 degrees, People!  But, 157 plungers were there to jump in it anyway and help raise money for Special Olympics Kentucky.  I was going to plunge too . . . but had a change of heart when my friend David Bristow, from Southern Star, offered up an additional $100 to charity if he could push me in.  Naturally, I said "Yes!"  And the cameras were rolling.

Jerrod Niemann’s New Video Is Different…

After meeting Jerrod Niemann last month in Memphis, I can definitely say that he's different. But, not in a bad way at all! He was very nice and fun to hang with, but he's not at all a cookie-cutter country artist.

Here's his latest video for "Drink To That All Night".  And, it's different for sure!

Take a look and see!

Erin Grant Presents: Icy Stairs [VIDEO]

All right, since I showed you the snowy stairs, and since we got all that sleet and freezing rain after my first video, I now present what conditions have transpired since then. A couple of notes, at one point I say I'm going to "turn the camera off", uh, sorry. It was about 5 degrees when I shot this, and, most important, I didn't fall. Let's watch.

I Discovered Something About My Long Lost ‘Bubba’ [VIDEO]

I think I've mentioned before how much I enjoy Bass Pro Shops in Nashville. In fact, whenever I'm in Music City, I make sure and pay a visit before I leave--even I don't need anything or end up making a purchase.
