The CMA Awards are over for this year and I thought I’d blog about what I think might be some surprises for next year on country music’s biggest night. Here are my bold predictions for 2016’s CMA AWARDS…CLICK HERE
Just a quick note to catch up with you. Hope all is well with you. Same old stuff with me. Had dinner with Chris Young last night before the Brittany Spears concert. It’s so good to see a real good guy having such success. He was trying to talk me into learning this GOLDEN TEE thing. He’s addicted to the game, so much in fact that they gave him some kind of frequent user card. How crazy is that? Did you ever have a video game you were addicted to? I guess, Astroids for me.
CMA FEST IS OVER! It was great as always. We were lucky enough to be involved with several artist events and sadly had to turn a few down because of timing. Tony got to check out the rehearsal for Keith Urban’s tour and only a select few got to do that. I went to this private club called the Citizen in Virago that was amazing. There was about 40 of us that got hang and talk to Shania and hear her new stuff.
She is very personable and nice. Pretty as can be too. I am told that we took a limo to LP field one night and checked out Keith Urban’s set. HA. It was a long day/night. Keith has always been a good friend to Tony and I but he keeps doing classy cool things that so many artist could learn from. His opening act this year is Jake Owen. A lot of artist keep to themselves when doing tours. Keith had a set at LP field and most artist would love playing their music for 80,000 fans. Keith did a great job but what made it cooler was is he called a few days before to Jake and said “I went online and learned to play your song “Don’t think I can’t love you” and during my set, why don’t you come out and sing that, I’ll play the guitar. How classy is that? They both knocked it out of the park.
Tony and I had to get up super early the next day because we hosted Chris Young’s Fan Club party. Chris’ 10th.
He’s gonna have a lot more cause his new cd is AMAZING. He in a classy move gave presents to those that helped him get to this point in his career. Very cool. ( We did sneak a pic from a video of when he was a kid) Gonna run now but we have new station information and our trip to Bama Rising coming later this week. Have a great day and thanks for checking this out!

What a Memorial Day Weekend! Think I ate enough burgers, steaks, and hot dogs to feed a country. Saw Hangover 2 with a group of around 15 or so and Jake Owen joined us. If you have not heard his new one it’s called Barefoot Bluejean Night! It’s his biggest seller he’s had.
The movie was hysterical and my favorite line is “the monkey gets it”.
Saturday night there was a festival downtown with some great stages going and a group of us went. We ended up at Jimmy Buffett and he puts on a great show. Chris Young joined us and we all pretty much stayed out of trouble.

Chesney jumped up and sang a couple of songs too!
Played golf over the weekend and shot the best I have EVER shot. Played with a very cool songwriter named Anthony Smith. Great guy. Trying to get the final touches on everything for us to start on air in California in the Morongo Valley. Looking forward to being on out there in a few places before end of summer. Got to run right now will check in later in the week with a better blog. 🙂 Have a good one
OH yeah, this is downtown on a typical SaturDAY in Nashville!
