Let the Christmas songs ring-a-ling

5:00 AM Thursday, Dec. 04, 2014

Now that it’s December, bring on the Christmas decorations and Christmas music. I can only handle one holiday at a time. Santa and Halloween pumpkins don’t belong together. We just started playing Christmas music on K99.1FM the day after Thanksgiving, a little at a time, to get you in the holiday spirit. I know a lot of people...
Get ready for country music’s biggest night on Wednesday
 It’s funny how a long car ride isn’t so bad when your destination is Nashville, isn’t it? It’s CMA week, and all of country music royalty will be in Music City for the Country Music Association Awards show Wednesday night. Know who else will be there? Frye Guy and me! We’ll be broadcasting live from Music Row...

Add this to the list of proper concert etiquette

4:00 AM Thursday, Oct. 23, 2014

Over the years, we’ve talked about proper concert etiquette. “Don’t block other peoples’ view.” “Go with the flow. If everyone’s standing, stand up. If everyone’s sitting, sit down.” “Don’t heckle the band!” “Don’t spill beer on other concert people.&rdquo...
Doing the diet, with a side of inspiration

4:00 AM Thursday, Oct. 09, 2014

I often say this, but it’s really true: I love my job. I love working for a great company. I love meeting country artists. I love working with my on-air partner, Frye Guy. When my alarm clock starts screaming at 2:02 a.m. every weekday morning, I don’t necessarily love it, but I don’t mind. Most of all, I love connecting...
Casper the friendly cat claws his way in
 Fall officially arrived this week, and here’s to hoping it’s less hectic than the summer was. Not complaining by any means, because it was filled with great country music (Luke Bryan in concert several times — don’t hate), Jason Aldean, trips to Nashville, my third nephew’s graduation from high school and the...

Garth will return to a changed landscape

4:00 AM Wednesday, Jul. 23, 2014

Garth Brooks is back. The return of the legendary country music superstar is official, after weeks of teases on his website and hints throughout the industry. Garth retired from the biz back in 2001, saying he would return when his youngest daughter graduated from high school. In 2009, he began a five-year concert deal with the Encore Hotel...
5 things you may not know about Country Concert
 Thousands of happy campers — and non-campers — are in Fort Loramie this week for Country Concert 2014. I’ll be there, screaming along with all the other ladies when Luke Bryan shakes his thang. My first Country Concert was the year I started here at K99.1FM, in 1989. I remember WHIO-TV’s Jim Baldridge flew in on Chopper...

Brad Paisley goes on TV seeking a ‘Rising Star’
 Just when you thought we’d have a break from the reality singing competitions, comes a new one — “Rising Star” on Sunday nights on ABC. You may be thinking, “What’s new about this one?” Well, if the spinning chairs are making you dizzy, and Ryan Seacrest is grating on your nerves, “Rising Star&rdquo...

Even Nashville stars can be ‘accident prone’

4:00 AM Wednesday, Jun. 11, 2014

From the files of “Things to know about Nancy”: I’m a klutz. My morning radio show partner Frye Guy likes to say I’m “accident prone,” which is a nice way of saying I’m clumsy. That crack in the sidewalk you may have successfully navigated hundreds of times? A beacon for me. The remnants of a dead...
Profound thoughts accompany nephew’s graduation

4:00 AM Wednesday, May. 28, 2014

Three down and one to go. It’s hard to believe the third out of my four beloved nephews graduates from high school this month. Hunter Matthew Wilson, or “Matt-chew” as I call him, will walk down the aisle in the Madison Plains High School gym to “Pomp and Circumstance” in cap and gown, as our family cheers him...
Love runs both ways for some country artists

4:00 AM Wednesday, May. 14, 2014

There’s no question how devoted country fans can be to their favorite artists — judging by all the baby Mirandas and Lukes running around. And that’s not counting the vast number of Jason Aldean and Florida Georgia Line tattoos adorning adoring fans. But the best part is when you see it returned. For some country artists...
Fighting ticket scalpers of the computer age
 Back in the day, when you wanted to see a concert, you stood in line for tickets. Hours at a time. Sometimes even days of camping outside a venue to get good seats. Often, you were rewarded with “floor seats” or, if you were really lucky, you got tickets in the first five rows. With today’s technology, you don’t have...

This fan smelled a Rascal Flatts rat right away

4:00 AM Thursday, Apr. 17, 2014

As you know, I have the greatest job in the word. Sometimes, it’s tough when that alarm goes off at 2:10 a.m., but other than that, it’s the best. Not only do I love country music, I’m a fan, just like you. I follow the artists on Facebook and Twitter, I read all the country news websites, and I watch all the awards shows...
Country stars can’t wait to buy albums, just like us

4:00 AM Wednesday, Apr. 02, 2014

One of the perks of working at a music station is you get to hear new releases before they officially come out. But just like everyone else, when it comes to the actual album, you have to wait. I’ll admit, there have been occasions when I went to my local 24-hour store to buy a new release when it came out at midnight! In keeping with...
Five things you probably didn’t know about Scotty McCreery
 It started out innocently enough. I found out “American Idol” winner/country cutie Scotty McCreery was going to attend the North Carolina State vs. Xavier NCAA “first four” basketball game Tuesday night at the University of Dayton Arena. It was no real surprise to hear he was bringing his tour bus full of friends and...

Putting 25 years of K99.1 into perspective

5:00 AM Thursday, Mar. 06, 2014

This year, St. Patrick’s Day has an extra special meaning for those of us here at K99.1FM: It’s also our 25th birthday. It’s hard to believe it’s been two and a half decades since we played our first country song, “I Was Country When Country Wasn’t Cool” by Barbara Mandrell. Back then, Alabama and...
Biggest country radio event tests endurance

10:19 PM Thursday, Feb. 20, 2014

My K99.1 radio co-host Frye Guy and I are in Nashville this week for the Country Radio Seminar. Known as the “biggest country radio event in the world,” the three day program at the Nashville Convention Center is full of panels, exhibits, speakers and educational presentations in all areas of the radio and records industry. Long...
Rock, country singers collaborating

5:00 AM Thursday, Feb. 06, 2014

As a self-admitted ’80s big hair band music fan, and obvious country music connessiour, imagine my surprise and delight when I heard the latest combination. Country and rock have been collaborating forever, where else do you think Luke Bryan got the inspiration for his skinny jeans? Add some zebra stripes and hair extensions and voila!...
10 types of concert fans

5:00 AM Wednesday, Jan. 22, 2014

Cold weather does not deter the country music fan and there are plenty of concerts to choose from to keep the blood pumping. Mega star Luke Bryan kicked off his “That’s My Kind of Night” tour with Lee Brice and protege Cole Swindell with a sold out show in Columbus last week. I’m sure most ladies would agree, &ldquo...
Is your resolution to lose weight? You can take a page from the country stars

5:00 AM Wednesday, Jan. 08, 2014

If you’re one of the 45 percent of Americans who usually make New Year’s resolutions, by the time you read this, about a quarter of us have already slipped up. By the time we reach December, the percentage of folks who successfully achieved the goals they set up this month dwindles down to single digits — 8 percent. The...
