Chris Young Sings Keith Whitley’s “Don’t Close Your Eyes” [Video]

On Friday morning, one of our WBKR Waking Crew listeners called in and requested Chris Young's version of Keith Whitley's country classic, "Don't Close Your Eyes."  Naturally, because Chris Young has not released that as an official single, it was not in our broadcast system.  However, I, at the caller's urging, found it on YouTube.  It was just about a year ago that Chris appeared at The Grand Ole Opry and performed it.  And, as you would expect, the performance was terrific.  Check it out!

Opry Legend Jim Ed Brown Releases New Single “In Style Again”

On Tuesday night, Jim Ed Brown, like he has for fifty years, stood in the famed circle at The Grand Ole Opry.  He announced to the crowd that, for the first time in a long time, he was releasing a new single and he was doing it at the age of 79.  See, that's the ebb and flow of any career, but particularly a career in popular music.  Over the course of three decades (the 50's, 60's and 70's), Jim Ed Brown was a proven hitmaker.  But strings of hits just don't last forever.  While the hands on the clock refuse to quit spinning,  the record players and the radio stations often times stop the "spinning" in its tracks.  They routinely start "spinning" tunes from younger artists, the next generation of hitmakers.  But this country music staple, this Grand Ole Opry icon, is still at it . . . with a brand new song in which he professes "I'd like to be in style again someday."

Darius Rucker Joins Old Crow Medicine Show on ‘Wagon Wheel’ [Video]

One day last week, the folks from Save-A-Lot in Leitchfield called me on the morning show and they were wanting to hear Old Crow Medicine Show's "Wagon Wheel."  I love that song and was ready to spin it for them, but realized we didn't have it in our song library.  So, out of curiosity, I started searching for the song on YouTube and, of course, instantly found OCM's version.  But, I also found a lot of other versions of the song, including this one!  Check it out.  In July, Old Crow Medicine Show played The Grand Ole Opry and was joined on stage by Darius Rucker.  Watch!

Owensboro’s Gal Wishes Brad Paisley “Happy Birthday”

Love this!  Owensboro native Natasha Neely recently had the chance to help The Grand Ole Opry wish Brad Paisley a happy 40th birthday.  They needed a Marilyn Monroe look-a-like to deliver a very special, breathy birthday song to Brad.  And Natasha delivered.  But, as the Opry proved, looks can be VERY deceiving.  WATCH THIS!
