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.

Growing up in rural Baldwin County, Alabama he began singing and playing guitar by the age of six and wrote his first song at sixteen.

Like the man himself, the music of Dew Pendleton cannot be easily defined or pigeonholed into any one genre. Born in Alabama and raised on the family farm, you might expect to find him as country as that all sounds, but it is only a small part of the puzzle that creates his unique sound, a sound that is crafted by the honesty of country, the soul of gospel, and the sheer fun of rock.


10:30pm – 1:15am — DJ Rob Nice

He tells The Bangor Daily News, “I think country music is in great hands.”

As for his own future, he says he’s going to keep making music and touring, and as someone who has performed with many different artists throughout his career, Tim says if he could perform with anyone, “Merle Haggard would be somebody I’d love to sing with. He’s such a huge icon.  And of course, singing with my wife is always good.” Tim’s Sundown Heaven Town Tour will continue through August 9th, then he’ll release his new album, also called Sundown Heaven Town, on September 16th.
