The average person does this 4 years sooner today, than compared to 40 years ago. What is it?
Answer: Go gray
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.

“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.

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 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.
The Modern Eldorados were formed in 1996 as a vehicle for singer/songwriter Gretsch Lyle’s original brand of classic country music. Raised in a family of musicians, Lyles was heavily influenced by his grandparent’s generation of country greats. 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. From a very early age he felt the calling to follow in the footsteps of his heroes Marty Robbins, Hank Williams and Johnny Cash. In both sound and style, Gretsch Lyles is the embodiment of his musical influences.

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.

“Not Quite Fab” is Dickie Williams (Gulf Breeze) as Paul McCartney, Glen Vignolo (Pensacola) as John Lennon, Jim DeStafney (Pensacola) as George Harrison, and Jeff Fitzpatrick (Niceville) as Ringo Starr. This is a “professional show” not a top 40 nightclub gig. Every age group from children to retirees loves the Beatles music and sings along and dances to nearly every song. Perfect entertainment for any event or age group. The real show is the full experience, sounds like- looks like- feels like the Beatles.
