Legendary Live: The Top Ten by the Top Two

A few weeks ago, when Moon, Chad, and myself were planning the new Saturday morning countdown The BKR's Dozen, I mentioned that I was born to do countdowns. As luck would have it, the two acts at the top of Saturday's Legendary Live line-up--Montgomery Gentry and Rodney Atkins--each have five number one songs. So, here we go: The Top Ten of the Top Two! (Tiebreakers determined by length of stay on the chart.)

What’s That Smell?

It's almost Bar-B-Q Festival time in downtown Owensboro!!  It's one of the few times of the year someone can ask, "What's that smell?" and you don't mind to tell them!  LOL!  The International Bar-B-Q Festival has been around since way back in 1979.  Not only is it tradition in Owensboro, but it essentially put Owensboro on the map.  See, Memphis can claim Bar-B-Q.  Uh . . . whatever!  St. Louis can claim good eatin' too!  Uh . . . always a bridesmaid St. Louie!  Better stick with that arch!   But Owensboro IS the Bar-B-Q capital of the world!   And the International Bar-B-Q Festival, the 2nd weekend of each May, is just a reminder how good OUR Bar-B-Q is!
