WOW, I am so excited to hear that Eric Church has Dwight Yoakam going out on tour with him. I have always thought that Eric Church was awesome but this move solidifies it for me. It's interesting though , I hadn't really thought about it before now but now I can totally see the similarities between these two artists.
Hard to believe it's been 10 years since we first came up with the idea to start "Blue Friday". I have to tell you of all the things I have been a part of in my radio career this event has always been one that I have been the most proud of. Something that started as just an idea to honor the fallen police officers in our area as well as those who currently serve has grown into an organization of it's own, "Blue Friday Of New York", and a N.Y.S. recognized holiday. I am amazed every year at the support and generosity that our WGNA listeners give to this event. I hope that this year is no exception.
What do you even say anymore? Are you shocked? Outraged? Probably not. I guess now that Louisiana Congressman Vance McAllister has been caught on video making out with his long time staffer, who is also married, the cycle of apologies, prayers, forgiveness and re-election can begin.
You gotta love kids! Listen learning the ins and outs and subtle nuances of the English language can indeed be difficult. I know for a fact, that both myself when I was young and my youngest child could not say the word "truck" without the adults around laughing and trying to make us say, "Fire Truck" over and over." Truth be told however, how many times does the word "truck" come up a day? Now, "Thank you" is something we try to teach our children early in life and want them to say it often. Maybe not so much a good idea with this kid however.
Did you get a chance to catch the ACM Awards last night? Well, if you didn't you missed some pretty good stuff and some pretty awkward moments too. When I first began thinking of writing about the show I was going to go with an article about the awkward moments, perhaps even let you rank them from "worst" to "no this was ever worse than that". I then thought, "No lets try to keep it positive Sean" and I will.
I'm not sure if you have heard about this story yet but I'm pretty sure it broke yesterday, I saw it in an article on "Gawker". It seems that superstar actor James Franco had a Instagram conversation that he had with a 17 year old from Scotland posted to "Imgur" by her. As I wrote this article I was reminded of an adage I once heard and still give as advice to friends who wonder if a girl is "too young for him". It says that if you want to have a relationship with a girl she has to be at least half your age plus 9. If you just want to "hook up", it's whatever is legal in that sate. (you know you will use it)
I have seen these things before, I think I have even seen them with "Game of Thrones" but for some reason this one just stands out as funny. A company called, io0.com produced a video of the opening credits of "Game of Thrones" but made it look and sound VERY much like an 80's sitcom. Like I said, I've seen these before but this one is just believable enough to make you want to watch it if the show were really like this!
I was thinking about trying to find some old video clips for throwback Thursday and I looked and looked at things from WGNA throughout the years and although it is only a year old I thought this video from Countryfest 2013 would be the most fun. I think it will be fun for everyone to look through the video and see if they can find themselves, or art least remember (if you can) what you were doing at that time.
Do you have a teenager? If you do I think you will agree there is always something, something about them you just can't seem deal with and you talk to them, fight with them, ground them and nothing seems to work. So what do you do? Have you ever thought about going to some extreme to get your point across? Well this guy did, and from what I understand so far, it has worked.

Kip Moore was recently asked why he chose to light up a cigarette in his latest video for "Young Love." I guess there are those who believe that it sets a bad example for young people.
Kip said, "My whole deal with doing that in the video was, when I was a teenager I would smoke from time to time. It was supposed to be everything how I did it back then." So basically, he's just keeping it real.
