Hope you are ready for the Holidays. Just thought I’d take a moment and reflect on the past year real quick. The TK Productions business is taking off. We are so excited for the way things have set up for 2012 as we continue to be the fastest growing syndicated show in country music. Personally, a lot of great moments in the year and life is so good right now.
Hope everyone’s life is great. Lot to catch you up on. Tony and I (and some friends) went to New York last weekend for the CMT Tour. Lee Brice, Josh Thompson, and Luke Bryan played a show and we got to party with them a bit. Luke’s mom was there and she listens to us down in Albany on K-Country. She’s too funny. Josh Thompson went out and hit the town with us. You should buy some of his stuff on iTunes. Won’t Be Lonely Long is my favorite song by him. Took a jog through Central Park, and got to hang most of the day at ground zero. Amazing stories down there. See photos from the New York Trip HERE
Last night may have been one of the coolest things I’ve done in the 20 years of radio I’ve worked. Under the arena here is a rehearsal area for artist to get ready for their tours. Miranda invited about 20 of us to come see her last night of rehearsal. She had couches set up in front of the stage. Tony and I had a few drinks made for us and basically got our own FULL Miranda Concert. Loved the fact she’s got “strings” in the show this year. One of my favorites from her. The show is going to be great so get your tickets when it comes to your town. A lot of pics are posted. HERE!
Hope you catch some football this weekend and that your team does well. We are getting closer to our 2 big announcements. This coming week or so we should be able to let you in on at least one of them.
Miranda invited us to the last night of rehearsal for her upcoming tour. These are just some of the photos and a few videos. It was in a special rehearsal hall under the arena in Nashville. The Pistol Annies made an appearance, two rock cover songs, and all of her hits. We were lucky enough to be able to watch with about 20 others on a couch about 10 feet from the stage. It was like our own private Miranda concert and was amazing. Hope you catch it when it comes to your town.
Not really gonna mess with Texas
Real quick blog before we head off to East Texas. Looking forward to hanging with all our friends at KYKX and the BIG BASS BONANZA plus being with Miranda, Josh Kelley, and others at the Cause for the Paws event. Tony and I will be tweeting from these events. (Drinks will be flowing-so it should be interesting) follow on twitter @tonyandkris @Tmoney68 and @kris5150

The Royal Wedding this morning, when I get married mine better be bigger than that wedding. That’s all I’m saying on that and I wonder how long the Princess will bug William about doing “thank you” notes. LOL.
Before I run, got to tell you about my awesome nephew. I was back home and taking a nap on the couch and he came in thinking I was asleep and put a blanket on me, then put his hand on my forehead reached down and kissed my cheek and tip toed out. He’s too awesome. Have a great weekend and I will check back first of next week.
Producer Heather here. I was lucky enough to attend Keith Urban’s ‘All For The Hall’ benefit concert last night. All I can say to sum it up is WOW!! Keith opened up the show by playing a couple of his hits then after a short intermission, the stars came out. Vince Gill took the stage first, Predators jersey and all. Martina came up next. We all know the girl can sing but I kid you not, my jaw dropped when she sang “A Broken Wing.” Talk about some pipes! The night continued with Miranda singing her hit “The House That Built Me” and then did an awesome version of Merle Haggard’s “The Bottle Let Me Down.” I’ve never seen Billy Currington live but I have to say, he really impressed me. He, with Vince Gill and Keith Urban doing backups, sang “Must Be Doing Something Right.” Needless to say the girls in the front row just about lost it. That was all said and good but it was when he went to sing Kenny Rogers, “Sweet Music Man,” the lights went down it was just him and a spotlight. Dang. I was memorized! Alan Jackson sang his classic hit “Chattahoochee,” Alison Krauss had everyone wiping tears away with “I Know Who Hold My Hand” and Charlie Pride made an appearance and sang Conway Twitty’s “Hello Darling.” Dolly Parton closed the show and that girl is just a riot! She had the whole audience in the palm of her hand after a little flirting with both Vince and Keith she sang “Jolene” and the George Jones classic, “He Stopped Loving Her Today.”
I can’t say enough how much I enjoyed the show. It was just one power hitter after another and I’m so glad I got to attend!

Just a couple days after receiving 9 CMA nominations, Miranda Lambert calls into Tony & Kris to talk about her thoughts and which award she’d like to take home. Plus, the guys give her a hard time for getting engaged to their buddy and country superstar, Blake Shelton![audio:http://www.tonyandkris.com/audio/T&K Miranda Lambert 9-8-10.mp3|titles=Miranda Lambert|artists=Tony & Kris]
