Help the Daniel Palmer Home

Posted on: February 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.

Kenny Chesney Shows Women’s ‘Free Spirit’ In New Video…

Posted on: February 12th, 2015 by Chris

The video for Kenny Chesney’s new single “Wild Child” made its debut this week on Kenny wanted the new video to capture the essence of the song and show a woman’s free spirit, so he teamed up with longtime creative collaborator Shaun Silva and good friend/songwriter Gretchen Rhodes to shoot the video in Hawaii. 

The video shows clips of Gretchen surfing, hiking and riding horses as she makes her way across the landscape. Kenny says of the song, “It is a song about any woman so hungry to engage life, she spends her days trying to taste it all… You don’t have to be a gypsy to be a free spirit, but just someone so in love with life, you will never get enough. To see a woman like that is a pretty amazing thing.” 

The song features guest vocals byGrace Potter.

Steel Magnolia’s Meghan Linsey Tries Out For ‘The Voice’

Posted on: February 11th, 2015 by Chris

Former Steel Magnolia member, Meghan Linsey is taking her talents to NBC’s “The Voice.”

This was her post on Facebook:


This is her second try at TV singing competitions. In 2009, her and her former fiancé, Joshua Jones, won CMT’s ‘Can You Duet?’ The win earned them a record deal with Big Machine Records and led to their Top 5 song, “Keep On Lovin’ You”.

Meghan and Joshua split in 2013.

Frankie Ballard On The Mend

Posted on: February 11th, 2015 by Chris

Frankie Ballard is on the mend after an accident in Texas last weekend that left him with a separated shoulder, a broken rib and some over-stretched ligaments. He’s still touring but cannot play guitar.

Hope he’s back to 100% when he comes to The Wharf with Florida Georgia Line and Thomas Rhett on March 23!

Is Blake Shelton ‘The Face’ Of Country Music?

Posted on: February 10th, 2015 by Chris

Is Blake Shelton country’s latest, greatest export? The Washington Post seems to think so.

They say he could very well be the new Taylor Swift. She’s no longer making country music, so it makes sense that country music would need a new face. And his face is that face.

Here’s why they think he’s the best new ambassador in it’s stable got:
1. His massive mainstream success on The Voice has earned him fans outside the country bubble.
2. His country-boy-in-the-big-city image works, and it is not an act.
3. The way he’s stayed true to his image: the hard-drinking partier — which is “universally relatable.”
4. He’s open about his drinking. Super open. The guy has no shame and nothing to hide.
5. He can’t believe he’s as famous as he is.
6. Nashville needs Shelton.

It Takes A Team To Make Eric Church’s Tour Happen

Posted on: February 6th, 2015 by Chris

Eric Church took CBS This Morning out on the road with him for a rare behind-the-scenes look at the 100-plus person production of his “The Outsiders World Tour.”

For 24 hours, CBS cameras followed him and his crew as they made a 220-mile run from Fresno, California, to Los Angeles. The cameras captured just how much effort and precision goes into putting on the nine-month tour. From assembling and tearing down the stage and lighting for each show to loading it up into 14 tractor-trailers every night, the behind-the-scenes look shows just how hard Eric’s crew works to pull it off.

Eric will play The Wharf in Orange Beach on June 12.
