Carrie Underwood Back At Work, Looking Great After Baby

Posted on: June 15th, 2015 by Chris

Carrie Underwood returned to work last week as CMA Fest got rolling in Nashville. She performed on the Opry stage, made an appearance on the CMT Awards and Saturday she sang in Nashville’s LP Field for the CMA Music Festival’s signature concert. It was hard to believe she had just given birth to Isaiah just a few months ago, let alone a C-section delivery.

That’s what she to E! News of her recovery process, explaining how she wasn’t able to get back in the gym immediately after having her son.

“I couldn’t work out for a few weeks because I ended up having to have a cesarean — blah, blah, blah, too much information,” she says. In addition to altering her diet, she says, “I made it happen where I can, when I can pretty much.”

Whatever she did, it worked. But being back in the spotlight doesn’t stop her from fulfilling her new role as mom.

“I schedule things around feedings and stuff like that. Anything I do I’m like, every three hours, ‘I gotta go feed my baby!’”

Her pregnancy was not time off, though. Carrie has been working on new music which she hopes to have out by the end of the year.

Moments From The “Little” Jimmy Dickens Memorial

Posted on: January 9th, 2015 by Chris

“Little” Jimmy Dickens was remembered yesterday at a ceremony that served as both a tribute and funeral for the long time member of the Grad Ole Opry who passed away last week.

One of the more moving moments was when Brad Paisley led some of the stars of the Opry in a rendition of an opry classic, “Will The Circle Be Unbroken.”

He got choked up as he paid his last respects saying, “We’ll take it from here, little buddy.”

Jimmy passed away last Friday, January 2 at the age of 94.

Vince Gill and Carrie perform “Go Rest High on This Mountain” at Little Jimmy Dickens’ public service.

Tracking Santa

Posted on: December 24th, 2014 by brent

It’s once again time to track Santa’s whirlwind trip around the globe.

NORAD Track Santa

NORAD has been tracking Santa since Christmas Eve in 1955, when a typo in a newspaper gave kids the government organization’s direct number. NORAD uses a radar system with 47 installations across Canada’s Northern region and Alaska, watching for indications of Santa leaving the North Pole.

Google Santa Tracker

Google has also put its engineers on the job, working with Santa’s elves to build a Santa Tracker app. Their dashboard uses Google Maps technology to follow Santa’s progress around the world.

Tracking Santa

Tracking Santa is managed by the North Pole Tracking Department, which gets its news directly from Santa. A single elf got the project started in 1991, when Santa updates had to be sent to little kids via fax.
