Hello All! It has been a long time since I have updated the Blog, but I think it is well overdue. Everyday now I am going to try to update this puppy with what is going on during the show and around the area. It is surely important to make sure that for our listeners.

Today on the Afternoon Drive:

Iain Black and I wrapped up for you the CMA Awards from last night! You can hear our discussion on his show here and the discussion we had on The Afternoon Drive here.

On the show today, we gave away the final tickets to Blake Shelton's concert this weekend to Dave Meyer. David couldn't be more thankful and I love it when I can touch listeners like that. David is going to bring his girlfriend to the concert and have a blast this Saturday! I hope all the listeners will have a blast down in Harris and you might just see me there!

Also on the Show I talked about Sugarland's new possible CD coming out this summer. The news broke right after the CMAs last night. Jennifer Nettles told Entertainment Weekly that most of the writing has already been done and the Duo of the Year is looking forward to getting back to the studio. I can't wait to hear what they are working on.

In other Country News that I didn't get to, Carrie Underwood's "Cowboy Casanova" just went number one, but what about the new CD Play On? It has now topped the Billboard top 200 and continues to climb in sales. Play On sold 318,000 copies in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan. This was less than Underwood's 2007 album, Carnival Ride, which moved 527,000 albums in its debut week, but it was more than enough to beat out Michael Jackson's This Is It, which came in number two. Congrats Carrie!

In the Five O Clock Hour, the Traffic Crunch was put together by CMA Winners which was a lot of fun! Brad Paisley/Keith Urban, Sugarland, Darius Rucker, Taylor Swift and Brooks and Dunn highlighted the Traffic Crunch. Ronnie and Kix deserved a play despite not winning. Last night capped their last performance ever together.

That's about it for now, make sure you follow me on twitter for random thoughts on Country Music at
