Cram The Van

Posted on: July 31st, 2014 by Candy


Celebrating 15 Years of Community Service It’s Back to School time and school bells will soon sound, breaking the silence of summer break. Cram the Van now in its 15th year is ready to kick off another school year. Too many students in our community will not have the necessary school supplies to begin their school year. The cost of purchasing items like backpacks, pencils, paper, glue, crayons, notebooks and calculators can be overwhelming for a family that is struggling with the basic necessities.

Please support Cram the Van, a school supply program helping students in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties! You can help by dropping supplies off during the local Cram-A-Thons.

Don’t know what to bring? Check out our School Supply List! Also, there are collection boxes at all Sandy Sansing Dealerships, United Way in Escambia and Santa Rosa Counties and WEAR TV studio on Mobile Hwy.

First Oklahoma, Now Garth Leaves California

Posted on: July 29th, 2014 by Chris

Now that Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood have announced their relocation from Oklahoma to Nashville, they’re also cutting ties with their home in Malibu, California.

The 4,236 square-foot home was bought by Garth in 2008 for just under $5 million and has 4 bedrooms, 3½ bathrooms, and a big kitchen with Viking appliances and a six-burner stove. What, no pool? The home sits on half an acre of wooded land and is a short walk to a private beach access on Paradise Cove Beach.

Fan Wouldn’t Let Lightning Strike Keep Him From Carrie Underwood

Posted on: June 30th, 2014 by Chris

Some fans wouldn’t miss their favorite artist for anything and Carrie Underwood and Randy Houser found that out this past weekend in Wisconsin.

This past weekend, Country Fest was being held in Cadott, and Gage Stroening didn’t let a lightning strike, seizure, a hospital stay or a bad burn from a grill deter him from seeing his favorite artists.

According to Gage and witnesses, high winds knocked a neighboring camper’s tent into his grill, which was lit as he got ready to make lunch. He stepped on it, fell down, stood up and when he grabbed the metal framing alongside his camper it was hit by lightning. After a 4-hour hospital stay he was back at it with his arm in a sling and orders to take it easy.

He tells the Eau Claire Leader-Telegram he was down, but not out, after being injured. “It hurts to walk, but I’ve got pit passes to meet Randy Houser. I don’t have the energy like I did when I showed up, but I’m not missing these shows.” And he didn’t.

Country music has been dipping into the hip hop world for a few years. Now, it’s going to let it’s hair down and see how it does with 80s rock.

Several country stars are going to pay tribute to Motley Crue on the upcoming ‘Nashville Outlaws: Tribute To Motley Crue’ album. While it won’t be out until August 19, Brantley Gilbert and Justin Moore have released previews of their contributions to it.

Justin takes on “Home Sweet Home”:

And here, Crue’s Vince Neil and Nikki Sixx offer thoughts on Brantley’s version of their hit:
