Man buns on celebrities, UD players and country stars
 If you’re a celebrity follower like I am, you’ve noticed the growing popularity of the “man bun.” And I don’t mean the Luke Bryan type of buns. I mean hair. And not just guys who wear pony tails, but genuine wrapped-around buns. Leonardo DiCaprio, Jared Leto and Brad Pitt have been rocking the buns for a few...

Tooth goes flying during K99.1FM ‘Unplugged’ event
 “I don’t know what happened. We were just taking a picture and next thing I know, I trip and Nancy tries to break my fall by grabbing my hand with her teeth! She lost her tooth, but saved my life. Nancy Wilson is my hero!” — Brad Cummings, drummer/percussionist for Blackjack Billy. Well, that’s close to what...

Why I care about stars’ business
 I wouldn’t consider myself that much of a gossip. I’ve had plenty of incorrect information out there about me in my time on earth, and it’s no fun to hear it. But I’m not going to lie: doesn’t mean I don’t want to be informed. I read People magazine. I watch E News and Entertainment Tonight, and I&rsquo...

Taylor Swift concert: 5 things I learned
 A lot of country music fans were not sorry when Taylor Swift announced she was going pop with her “1989” album, which was released last fall. I’ll admit, Swifty is not one of my favorite artists. So when I came upon free tickets to see the 25-year-old in Columbus on her world tour, I wasn’t that thrilled. Taylor was...

College kids can study George Jones (and Miley, too)
 It’s past Labor Day now, which used to mean everybody was newly back in school. Now kids go back in early August, and Christmas decorations are up in some stores. Another change: College courses are not what they used to be. Some institutions of higher education are offering surprisingly specific courses in music and pop culture. For...

Who is the big star coming to play Milano’s?

Divorcing country stars once again show they are ‘just like us’

4:00 AM Thursday, Jul. 23, 2015

It wasn’t too long ago we talked about how celebrities are “just like us” and mentioned a story about Blake Shelton. The Oklahoma native helped out a man whose truck was stuck in high water. Just like us, right? Well, that proved to be true once again this week when TMZ first reported Monday, July 20 that the country megastar/&rdquo...
Stars willing to show their normal lives
 Have you seen that “Celebrities, they’re just like us” segment in Us Weekly magazine? “They shop at the grocery store!” “They walk their dogs!” “They have bad hair days!” (Well, not really.) Of course, these are usually paparazzi pictures on the unsuspecting celebs when they’re at...

‘Take females out’ remark: Man, oh man …
 Country music is not an industry to shy away from controversy and the last few weeks have continued that trend. And it has nothing to do with a former Olympian. It has to do with lettuce and tomatoes. What’s become known as “saladgate” was triggered by an interview radio consultant Keith Hill did with Country Aircheck, the...

A wild ride with Steven Tyler
 I had the distinct honor of talking with the only and only Steven Tyler this week. Yes, that Steven Tyler. He of the multi-octave rocker voice, the painted fingernails and multi-colored feathers, former “American Idol” judge, now country singer fame. The 67-year-old has released a new single, “Love is Your Name,” from...

Garth inspires woman’s naming of children
 When Karen Garrison’s children asked her what she wanted for Mother’s Day, the Darlington, Wis., woman said, “Mulch.” Instead, she got Garth Brooks. Garrison’s three children had nominated her for the Garth Brooks’ Mother’s Day Surprise contest on Good Morning America. Their heartfelt message won...

Held on April 19 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, with some 70,252 folks there, it’s safe to say this was a show that will down in history. With highlights ranging from George Strait and...

Clarkson’s talent, not weight, should be focus

4:00 AM Thursday, Apr. 16, 2015

As someone who has dealt with weight issues her entire life, I found myself enraged by all the headlines lately about singer Kelly Clarkson. This gifted young woman from Texas should be lauded for her amazing voice and positive outlook, but instead she’s been the subject of ridicule about her weight. She took the first American Idol...

Top stars get richer by the second

5:00 AM Thursday, Feb. 26, 2015

I’ve been working on my taxes this week, or, rather, my accountant friend Gerry is working on them for me. Math is not my strong suit. It’s not like I’m rolling in the green. It’s just I surround myself with folks who are smarter at certain things than I am who make sure I don’t start creeping into the red. A...
Eric Church gives his all, amen

5:00 AM Thursday, Feb. 12, 2015

Amid all the hoopla surrounding this past Sunday’s Grammy Awards, there were several key moments for me, one of which was Miranda Lambert’s sassy performance of “Little Red Wagon.” She claims she gets highly nervous before she sings and was happy she was on early so she could have a calming cocktail afterward, but...
Random acts of Florida Georgia kindness

5:00 AM Thursday, Jan. 29, 2015

Are you familiar with “random acts of kindness?” When that person in front of you in the drive-thru pays for your order, that is an example of a random act of kindness. Ideally, you would then, in turn, do something nice for another stranger. There’s actually a Random Act of Kindness Week in February, and it leads up to...
Frankie Ballard: 5 things you may not know

5:00 AM Thursday, Jan. 15, 2015

The highly anticipated Florida Georgia Line “Anything Goes” Tour hits the Miami Valley this Friday. Unless you’ve been taking a nap for the past three years, “FGL” consists of Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley, two tattooed young men who’ve taken country music by a storm, winning countless awards from a bunch...
From Aunt Ditsy to her beloved first nephew
 How is it that my nephews keep getting older and I stay the same age? This past Saturday the oldest neff got married. I remember when he was born in October of 1991, coming into this world at nearly 11 pounds. All the sweet little “zero to three months” baby clothes were hastily put aside for the next one as CJ was already testing...
