Here are a few remaining obstacles we attempted, and even threw in Chad racing Brian Smith in the mini-truck! I may or may not hit myself in the race with a rope....ok, I do, wasn't exactly how I thought that obstacle would end, ha! Want to see Chad roll down Heartbreak Hill or climb a huge rope in waders?

Meet Dakota Cummins: Battle for the Big O Finalist #6 [Video]

In late June, Dakota Cummins and Eddie Goins were in Owensboro for ROMP.  During their trip they happened to stop by Towne Square Mall at the same time we were setting up for our final Battle for the Big O audition.  Eddie came over to me and asked what was going on.  He saw the stage, the sound equipment and the judges' table, so he knew something was up.  I explained to him that we were searching for an act to open the 2012 Big O Music Fest starring Blake Shelton.  So, Eddie quickly turned to Dakota and said, "Wanna go back to the hotel and get your mandolin?"  Dakota said, "Sure."  And we're sure glad they did!  Check this out!  AMAZING!!
