Fewer of Country Music’s Females Successful on Regular Basis

Miranda Lambert is, arguably, the hottest female in country music right now. Taylor Swift wore that crown recently and sits right behind Miranda. And, as soon as the next new Carrie Underwood single is released, it will likely march right up the charts in short order as well.

Maybe Country Stardom Can Begin in Your Own Living Room [VIDEO]

We've had a number of new artists visit the WBKR studios over the years. And we have a number of local artists with amazing talent who have either visited or performed in the various talent competitions that I've had the good fortune to judge.

Blast from the Past Weekend Reminds Us That Pop Can Go Country and Country Can Go Pop [VIDEO]

Here we are in the middle of the Blast from the Past Weekend. And that's absolutely the perfect name for it--judging from Facebook comments, we've all been having a blast listening to this great classic country music. And, hopefully, it's allowed us to reminisce, get a little nostalgic, remember some great moments in country music history. That's already happened for me a number of times. In one, I think, 4 hour period yesterday, I heard a Charlie Rich song and a John Denver song. And, boy, do those late, great musicians ever have a storied past!
