Blake Shelton Plays Whisper Game On Fallon

Posted on: January 23rd, 2015 by Chris

Blake Shelton was on The Tonight Show last night and played a new game called The Whisper Challenge with Jimmy Fallon where they had to try and read each other’s lips and guess what was on other’s card through noise-canceling headphones.

Jimmy also had a little fun at Blake’s expense when he intentionally confused his hit “Neon Lights” with Brooks and Dunn’s “Neon Moon.” Blake fans will get a chance to hear the real version of the song when he makes his “Saturday Night Live” debut tomorrow.

Carrie Underwood, More Then Baby Proofing

Posted on: January 20th, 2015 by Chris

As Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher prepare for the arrival of their son, Carrie is considering the fact that she’ll be living with a professional hockey player and a little boy.

She tells CMT, “I just look around my house and I’m like ‘Yeah, that thing’s gonna get broken with my husband and my son’ and ‘yeah, I should put that away for a while.’” Knowing her husband’s line of work and the messes little ones create, Carrie’s also been thinking about making a few adjustments around their house.

“To be honest, I should husband-proof, I think, actually. But now I’ll be husband and child-proofing my house.”

She’s done good at keeping her due date secret, but it’s thought it is sometime in the spring. In the meantime, she’s working on new music for her next album.

Thomas Rhett Gets His Funk On

Posted on: January 20th, 2015 by Chris

Coming off the opening weekend of Florida Georgia Line’s ‘Anything Goes Tour’, Thomas Rhett has released a special cover of Bruno Mars’ ”When I Was Your Man” on

Thomas says he’s a big fan and has put the Mark Ronson song “Uptown Funk” featuring Bruno on his tour set list. “I’m obsessed with Bruno Mars’ records,” he tells Rolling Stone Country. “I’d give my right leg to be able to sing like that dude.”

Last month Thomas promised to record a cover of Bruno’s “When I Was Your Man” if 3,000 of his followers re-tweeted the post. Nearly 4,000 did and he started making a video for his version of the song. Thomas says, “We kept the video really simple. I wanted everyone to see that all we did was go in there, grab a mic, play the piano and sing the whole thing down. It’s a live take with a live vocal.”

Thomas will be in Cat Country at The Wharf in Orange Beach on March 21st with FGL and Frankie Ballard.

Brad Paisley’s Royal Treatment For Opening Acts

Posted on: January 19th, 2015 by Chris

Brad Paisley is known for pranking his opening acts. He’s also known for treating his opening acts to nights out. He’s rented out entire movie theaters and has taken them go-karting. Why does he give his opening acts the royal treatment?

“This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to tour and only get these acts out one time, and I like to try to make it really hard for another headliner to give ‘em a better time, you know?” Brad still remembers the artists who treated him well on the road, including Brooks & Dunn, who would rented out a club near the venue they were playing so they could just chill out and play music with the opening acts, including Brad and Rascal Flatts at the time.

Who knows what’s in store for Parmalee and The Swon Brothers on the ‘Country Nation Tour’, but we’re sure there will be stories. Brad and the crew hit The Pensacola Bay Center on Friday (January 23) for a Cat Country Big Show!!

Garth Brooks Has Special Moment With Special Olympian

Posted on: January 19th, 2015 by Chris

Garth Brooks recently performed in his hometown of Tulsa, Oklahoma, where he had a touching moment with a fan.

It was the first night of his string of shows and one fan was trying relentlessly to get his attention. According to Tulsa World, the fan was a Special Olympian named Nathan Putnam, who had met Garth at the Stillwater, Oklahoma games in 2007. He wanted to show Garth a picture of the two of them that was taken at the games, but was ushered away from the stage by security.

Nathan persisted and finally got Garth’s attention and he asked for the picture and then held it up so the audience could see it and said, “That’s you and me.” But the touching moment wasn’t over yet.

Nathan then gave Garth three of his medals, which he had won earlier this month at the Special Olympics Winter Games in Norman. See what happened next:

Help the Daniel Palmer Home

Posted on: January 16th, 2015 by brent

Corporal Daniel Palmer is a lifelong resident of Milton, Florida in Santa Rosa County. He came home in 2012 severely injured. Daniel is married to Becky and they have two children, Cameron and Vanessa Faith. Daniel was a member of the 3rd Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment, U.S. Marine Corps.

Daniel enlisted in the Marine Corps in June 2008. He deployed to Marjah, Afghanistan in December 2009 as a member of the 3rd Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment. On March 20, 2010 Daniel was wounded while patrolling in Marjah, Afghanistan. He stepped on an IED, improvised explosive device, causing the loss of his right foot and a portion of his lower leg. He is being treated for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, traumatic brain injury (TBI) and other medical issues.

After Daniel’s injury, he was sent to a medical facility in Germany where he was treated for a week. From there he went to National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland for almost a month. Daniel was then transferred to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Washington, D.C., where he received physical therapy treatment for about nine months.

After his treatment in Washington, Daniel was stationed at Camp Lejeune in Jacksonville, N.C. for two years. There he went through the military medical board process and was medically retired in August of 2012 with 90% disability.

Daniel and his family returned home on July 27, 2012, to a thunderous welcome-home celebration at Pensacola International Airport. Hundreds of well-wishers were in attendance. Gulf Coast Veterans In Need organized this homecoming and has worked since to support the Palmer Family’s transition to civilian life.

The Santa Rosa County Veterans Memorial Foundation and the Gulf Coast Veterans in Need groups have been diligently working to build a new home for this local hero and his family. With a January groundbreaking in Chumuckla, Florida, it is expected that the home will be completed by summer 2015.

Additional help is needed. Blackie Black, Bagdad Construction, is the home builder who is generously donating his time and leadership for this project. For information on building material donations or volunteering, please call Blackie at (850) 572-8563.
