A Thousand Horses and A Spamburger [Video]

And now . . . for Chad's emotional re-telling of the video Jaclyn shared yesterday.  (Insert emotionally destroyed voice).  Yep!  They're they are.  The two . . . count em . . . two things I wanted to experience during the 2015 CMA Music Festival.  Jaclyn had a HUGE list of places she wanted to visit and people she wanted to see.  And did we cross every single one of them off her checklist?  Yep!  Did we get a souvenir from every single one of them for Carsyn's hope chest?  Probably.  I wanted to do just TWO things on our trip to Nashville last week.  I wanted to see A Thousand Horses live and I wanted to eat a Spamburger.  Did I get to??????

Floyd the Flamingo: Stars Autograph Inflatable Bird at CMA Music Fest [Video]

On Day Two of the CMA Music Festival, Jaclyn and I were watching a Josh Turner set inside the HGTV Lodge.  We noticed, bobbing there in the front row, a big inflatable flamingo that had been autographed by a variety of country music stars.  Naturally, we were quite intrigued by this fine, feathered and handsome fella.  So, we decided that we just had to meet him.  And we did!  And, now, we'd like YOU to meet him too.  Ladies and Gents, meet Floyd the Flamingo!

Randy Houser’s “Like A Cowboy” Live [Video]

Confession time from Chad!  There are plenty of songs about summer on the radio right now and we, naturally, are playing the heck out of all them.  But, for me, my absolute favorite song of the summer is a ballad.  Not only is Randy Houser's "Like A Cowboy" one of my favorite songs of the summer . . . it's one of my favorite songs in years.  And I was searching YouTube recently and came across this live performance he gave at the CMA Music Festival in June.  I think Randy has one of the BEST voices in country music and this live version will show you why.  He is flippin' awesome.  WATCH!

Bizarre Photo of Chad Gets Tweeted by Country Music Tattle Tale [Photo]

What can I say?  We were delirious.  Jaclyn and I had been in Nashville for two straight days.  We had been on the air for 15 hours covering every single inch of the 2014 CMA Music Festival.  And we just needed to sit down inside the Nashville Convention Center for a few minutes, recharge our phones and our legs.  But that's when it hit me.  I saw an opportunity to do something really silly and I did it.  I just didn't realize that some writers for the website Country Music Tattle Tale were watching me do it.  LOOK!
