80th Annual Pensacola Interstate Fair Line Up

Posted on: October 17th, 2014 by brent

It’s Magical!  It’s Fun!  It’s the Fair!  The 80th Pensacola Interstate Fair promises all the fun and excitement that it’s become known for over the years, along with big name music acts and television personalities.

Stop by the Cat Country Tent and see “Winner Wonderland”. You can spin the prize wheel for some great prizes from:

The Fair’s musical line-up kicks off opening night with the “Catty-oke” finals presented by Cat Country 98.7 and Seville Quarter at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 16. Congrats to Morgan Milbradt – who won this year!

Rocker Eddie Money will perform his 70’s and 80’s hits on Friday, Oct. 17 at 7:30 p.m.  With over a dozen albums of his own, he is best known for songs such as “Baby Hold On,” “Two Tickets to Paradise” and Top 10 hit “Take Me Home Tonight.”

On Saturday, Oct. 18 at 7:00 p.m., the Fair presents country star David Nail.  Debuting in 2009, Nail became a household name in country music with songs like “Red Light” from his album I’m About to Come Alive and “Let It Rain” from his 2011 critically acclaimed album The Sound of a Million Dreams.  His newest album, I’m a Fire, includes the chart topping song “Whatever She’s Got.”  Nail was recently a 2014 CMT Music Awards nominee for Breakthrough Artist of the Year.

Local bands will have a chance to show their talent during our Sunday Showcase on Oct. 19. Be sure to come and support your favorite Pensacola act as shows are held throughout the day beginning at noon. Check the Fair website for details.

On Monday, Oct. 20Nick Jr. characters Milli and Geo from children’s show Team Umizoomi will make two live Meet & Greet appearances on the Pepsi Open Air Stage from 4:30-6:00 p.m. and again from 7:00-8:30 p.m.  The first 200 fans in line for each appearance will receive a free downloadable photo with the characters.  Lines will close 30 minutes before the end of each show, so get there early!

On Tuesday, Oct. 21 and Wednesday, Oct. 22, come out and see Jimmy Riffle, star of Animal Planet’s Gator Boys, perform stunts and capture techniques during the “Scales, Tails and Teeth Gator Show.”  There will be two shows both days at 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. followed by meet and greet sessions after each.

Also on Tuesday, Oct. 21, local country sensation Chloe Channell takes the stage at 6:30 p.m.  Chloe began her singing career at age seven on the Farmers Opry stage.  She has since earned national attention by performing at Radio City Music Hall during the quarterfinals of America’s Got Talent.

YouTube and A&E star Big Smo will bring his blend of country, rap and hip-hop to the Fair on Wednesday, Oct. 22 at 8:00 p.m.  His newly debuted album, Kuntry Livin’, gives a look inside the mind of a true original with songs such as “Kickin It In Tennessee” and blue collar anthem “Workin’.”

Also on Wednesday, Oct. 22, everyone is invited to watch or participate in the Livestock Auction at 7:00 p.m.  This event includes prize-winning steer raised by students, and all proceeds from the auction go back to those students.

As part of our special Senior Appreciation Day, come on out and take part in an afternoon and evening of nostalgia on Thursday, Oct. 23 as The Drifters Revue performs two shows at 3:30 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.  Sing and dance along to The Drifters’ hits like “Under the Boardwalk,” “This Magic Moment” and “Up On the Roof.”

American chart topper Craig Morgan will kick off the country-filled final weekend of the Fair on Friday, Oct. 24 at 7:30 p.m.  Since his first top ten hit “Almost Home,” Morgan has continued to heat up the airwaves with other hits like “That’s What I Love About Sunday,” “Redneck Yacht Club,” and “International Harvester” and “Wake Up Lovin’ You.”

To help bring a close to the Fair entertainment fun, award-winning American country music band Eli Young Band will perform their hits on Saturday, Oct. 25 at 7:00 p.m.  Hailing from Texas, Eli Young Band has made it big with songs like “Drunk Last Night,” “Crazy Girl,” “Even If It Breaks Your Heart,” and their newest single, “Dust.”

“This year, our musical lineup is filled with big names to help us celebrate our 80th anniversary,” said Don Frenkel, Pensacola Interstate Fair General Manager. “With entertainment almost every night, this year’s Fair is packed with fun and excitement.”

Carrie Puts The Brakes On Motorcycle Riding

Posted on: October 16th, 2014 by Chris

Carrie Underwood has dreams of being a biker mama this fall, but she’s had to put those plans on hold for now.

Earlier this year she got a motorcycle from Miranda Lambert as a ‘thank you’ gift for singing “Something Bad” with her, and Carrie promised she’d learn how to ride it. Her husband, Mike Fisher, even bought her a mini-bike to help her along, but she says those plans are on hold until after the baby comes.

“The whole pregnancy thing has kind of thrown a monkey wrench into my progress,” She tells CMT. “Mike bought me a little dirt bike to learn how to ride on first because the bike [Lambert bought] is a really big bike. It’s kind of serious, so I need some practice, and I was like, ‘OK, I guess we’ll have to take a timeout on the motorcycle lessons for a while!’”

Carrie is keeping her due date a secret saying it’s one thing as a celebrity she gets to keep secret. We’ll see (and guess) how far along she is when she co-hosts the CMA Awards with Brad Paisley on November 5.

Kenny Releases Live “Til It’s Gone” Video

Posted on: October 15th, 2014 by Chris

Kenny Chesney has released a live video for his latest single, “Til It’s Gone,” taken from his show at the Georgia Theater in Athens that was filmed for ‘CMT Instant Jam’ special.

Fewer than 1,000 people were in the audience for the show, so Kenny is glad to share the performance on a larger scale. Kenny says, “If you think about what the song says, it’s very much a one-on-one piece of communicating. It’s about hanging on to the one who matters to you.  For me, it’s talking straight to those hardcore fans who’ve been there — and saying ‘no matter where or what, I’m in this as long as you hang on.’”

Trisha Shows Off Her Gift From ‘Rocky’

Posted on: October 15th, 2014 by Chris

RCA Nashville

Trisha Yearwood unveiled the album cover for her new album, ‘PrizeFighter: Hit After Hit’ with a personal message on Facebook yesterday.

The album includes her first new material in seven years, including “PrizeFighter,” which she recorded with Kelly Clarkson, saying “I’m excited for you to be the first to see the PrizeFighter cd cover. The song ‘PrizeFighter’ describes for me the fight we all fight, whatever it is. It’s the courage to get up every day and give it your best shot, no matter the odds. For me, I learned that strength from my mama, Gwen. She went toe to toe with breast cancer, and though she lost her battle, she fought every step of the way with grace, dignity, humor, and love. She’s my prizefighter.”

the album will feature five other new songs as well as ten hits, including “She’s in Love With the Boy,” “XXX’s and OOO’s,” and “How Do I Live.”

As part of the post she also shared the album cover, which shows her in a glowing gown and tiara, with a pair of boxing gloves draped over her shoulder, which were given to her by none other than ‘Rocky’ himself. They were a gift from Sylvester Stallone, and he wore them while filming ‘Rocky V.’

The new album will be out November 17.

Jerrod Niemann Is A Married Man

Posted on: October 13th, 2014 by Chris

The buzz in country music is one of congratulations to Jerrod Niemann and Morgan Petek who were married in Puerto Rico on yesterday (October 12).

According to People, they exchanged “I dos” in a cliff-side, in a sunset ceremony overlooking the ocean.

The two were engaged roughly a year, with Jerrod popping the question last October in New Orleans. His initial plan was to propose on a carriage ride, but she didn’t want to wait in line. So, he did it in Jackson Square, by asking a stranger, “Would you be kind enough to take our picture? I think we might be getting engaged.”

In the days leading up to the big day, the two had a lot of requests from fans about gifts, which they respectfully declined, and asked for donations be made to his ‘Free the Music USA’ charity, that provides kids in need with instruments.

Jerrod’s new song, “Buzz Back Girl” is playing on The Cat.

No Surprises This Time For FGL

Posted on: October 10th, 2014 by Chris

Florida Georgia Line has found some of their biggest success teaming up with other artists like Nelly on the “Cruise” remix and Luke Bryan on “This Is How We Roll.” So, it’s a little surprising to see no special guests on the track listing for their new album, ‘Anything Goes.’

Tyler Hubbard tells ABC News, “Things just didn’t quite work out to collaborate right now with anybody.” They say they could always add one to a track at a later date. At the same time, they say they aren’t looking to add a big name to a song just to create a buzz.

“You gotta let that happen organically,” Tyler adds. “Sometimes it just doesn’t work out, you know. We’ll see what happens down the road. Right now, it’s just B.K. and myself.” As for that album title, Brian Kelley says they took an “anything goes” approach in the studio this time around.

“Anything Goes for us, is taking chances musically. Taking chances doing things with our voices. Taking chances with what we do with our music.”

‘Anything Goes’ will be out this Tuesday, October 14th.

Eric Church: It’s About Life, Not NASCAR

Posted on: October 9th, 2014 by Chris

Eric Church knows his new song, “Talladega” bring images of NASCAR to his fans minds, he wants them to know it has nothing to do with it.

“That is nothing more than the avenue through which the commentary took place. It’s really about life,” he tells Billboard.

“NASCAR was as hot as any sport back in the ’90s, and it was a thing where a group of your buddies go take stuff, tents, camp out, stay a few days, walk back and forth to the track,” he recalls. “We actually lost the damn car, you know; you’re so far away. I can’t tell you who won the race, but I could tell you all the experiences we had in a two- or three-day period.”

“Talladega” is the current champion in the New Music Smackdown, weeknights at 8:00 on The Cat.
