Saturday night is a very special night at The Grand Ole Opry in Nashville. As you likely know by now, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the Opry is again celebrating with an amazing, star-studded line-up. This morning, on The WBKR Waking Crew, Moon and I chatted with my good friend April Hyde, who gave us all the scoop about how the Opry will "flip the switch" pink this weekend. She also taunted Moon with news that Martina McBride would be the person doing the honors. Take a listen . . .
Where do I begin? In 1970 Lynn Anderson had a hit with "Rose Garden." In 2005, Martina McBride re-recorded the song for her "Timeless" CD. In 1988, Conway Twitty released "Goodbye Time" and in 2005 Blake Shelton also did a great job with the Conway classic. In 1980 Dottie West released "Lesson in Leavin." In 1998, Jodee Messina also covered the song on her "I'm Alright" CD. So many timeless classics, alot of them re-released and sounding just as good as the original. Hope you enjoy some of the video's and be sure to let us know on our WBKR Facebook page on your favorite classic remake?
Remember how much fun the free Martina concert at the grand opening of Independence Bank on Frederica street was? I mean, aside from that the fear that the street might cave in from the huge turnout. Get ready for take two in Henderson, and it might be a good idea to wear you're riot gear. About 20,000 spectators are expected to show and you can join the crowd!
Today is the day that along with Opening Day for Baseball should be declared a National H0liday as we all pause and reflect on all that is glorious about the one and only Martina Bride. Born on this date as Martina Mariea Schiff in Sharon, KS. in 1966. This year she celebrates her 20th anniversary as a recording artist.
It was this time last year when Jerrod Niemann's debut album, "Judge Jerrod & The Hung Jury" was released. "Lover, Lover" was the first big hit. And, the latest, "One More Drinkin' Song" is climbing up the charts now.
WBKR BKR Bunch member and consistent winner Jerrod Ratliff was in Nashville for CMA Music Fest having breakfast at Pancake Pantry, a popular Nashville restaurant. He saw a line forming across the street near the Belcourt Theater.
Well if you listen to WBKR at all you know that I, Moon Mullins, am a BIG fan of Martina McBride. This morning, much to my great glee, I found a video of Martina and Lauren Alaina from American Idol performing Martina's hit "Anyway"...
