Knottsville Boy’s St. Jude Fundraiser Earns State Recognition

This kid is a fundraising machine.  In December, Gavin Howard of Knottsville embarked on his mission to raise as much money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital as he could.  With the help of his parents, Gavin designed "Peace, Love, Cure" shirts and hoodies and he's been selling them like crazy.  In fact, at press time, Gavin has sold over 500 and the orders just keep rolling in.  There have been stories about him in the Messenger-Inquirer, on WFIE, WAVE-3 in Louisville and here at WBKR.com.  And Gavin's now getting attention from the Ky State House of Representatives, who, this week, sent Gavin a special certificate of recognition.  LOOK!

The Ultimate Karaoke Party Foul [Video]

This is hilarious!  When Jaclyn, Barby Birgy and I went to Memphis a couple of weeks ago for our annual St. Jude conference, we went to a karaoke bar on Beale Street.  And, there, Barb committed the ultimate karaoke party foul.  She rushed the stage during a gal's rousing rendition of Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You" and tried to turn a solo into a duet.  And the gal just wasn't having it.  In addition to trying to take Barb out with a well-timed soccer mom arm, she finally decided to hoard the microphone and move to the complete outer-edge of the stage.  This is a riot!  And Barb just keeps on singing . . .

The Lost Art Of Handwritten Thank You Notes

We all know the pain of thank you notes. Look back to graduation or your wedding... the flashbacks of wrist cramps and semi-permanent ink-stains on the side of my hand are slowly creeping back into memory. I can remember writing hundreds of those dang things and I'm pretty sure the only reason I got them finished quickly is so my sweet-southern Mother would stop nagging me, ha! (Love you, Mom!)

In a world of constant texting and quick emails, hand-written thank-you's tend to be forgotten. So, you can imagine how pleasantly surprised I was when Chad and I got a beautiful card in the mail at work today. Seriously... someone took some time on this one!

Take a look for yourself!

Jon Pardi’s ‘Write You A Song’ ToC Album Review

It's no secret that I like Jon Pardi. Ok, it's a possibility that I may love him. Chad and I had the pleasure of meeting Jon in Memphis at one of our Country Cares seminars for St. Jude. Instantly, we both thought he was awesome! Such a sweet, down-to-earth country boy with a contagious up-beat attitude mixed with some classic charm.

His first two singles, 'Missin' You Crazy' and 'Up All Night' play frequently on my music list. Well, yesterday his debut album released and I'm lovin it too! 'That Man' is probably my favorite (I'm a sucker for a good love song).

Here is Amanda Hensel's Taste of Country album review, check it out!
