Dierks Bentley stopped by to talk about the road, life, and his new cd “Home”. It always turns into a lot of uncomfortable almost over the line jokes whenever Dierks is in.

It’s almost Thanksgiving and people are starting to freak out. Been out a few times shopping and it’s funny to me seeing people already angry and fighting. Guess it’s the season. I am on a streak however. It was raining all day yesterday and I had to hit a few places, first Wal Mart. Parking lot was a mad house. Usually I always park in the back and just walk up instead of wasting gas and the extra steps don’t hurt me. I pulled up and since it was raining, thought that I’d check out the front. 1st spot, got it. Green Hills Mall is a tough place to park and I pull up, first spot open. Left there and met a date for a drink at Crows Nest. No parking there, pull up and the 2nd spot is wide open. I feel like Cal Ripken must have felt when he was on his streak.
I’m not sure what I’m doing this Thanksgiving, I may end up in Gulf Shores, Alabama or I might stay here in Nashville. Everyone that knows me knows I’m a HUGE Alabama Crimson Tide fan. Our biggest rivalry Auburn plays us Saturday in the Iron Bowl on CBS. If Bama wins, we will get to go to the National Championship Game. Roll Tide! (one of my favorite moments ever in the Iron Bowl is posted below. Listen to how excited the announcer gets)
Things have been jumping around here. We have been so busy. First I have to say, just saw a commercial for the new Sandler movie. Did not think it would be possible to make a worse movie than Grown Ups but this Jack and Jill looks like it could be an all time BAD MOVIE. On to other things. We were thrilled to FINALLY be able to announce that we will be back on KSON in San Diego. We were there for so long, it’s nice to reunite with all of our old friends. I’m looking forward to being out there for a few days in the coming weeks. We should have ANOTHER southern California station on before Thanksgiving and that will be very cool.
The Tony and Kris Country Cruise is 1 year away and it’s selling fast. We hope you make plans to join us, cause it’s going to be a blast. Tony’s Karaoke Party will be a blast and some of the prizes are pretty amazing. I’m hosting a HUGE singles party. The main thing is it’s going to be FUN. CLICK HERE FOR CRUISE DETAILS
I’m back down to the weight I was when I moved to Nashville. Back to running 4 miles a day, and working out pretty hard. Feel so much better when I work out pretty regular. What’s your favorite exercise? Your least favorite?
My Crimson Tide is playing pretty well and everybody is counting down to Nov. 5th. Alabama vs. LSU. It should be an awesome game.
Songwriting lately has not been happening as much. Been busy with work. Hope to get back into that soon. Supposed to write with a gal that I went out with a few times. That should produce some interesting songs. LOL
Catch you next time. 🙂

It has been an interesting week. Got some HORRIBLE news over the weekend. It’s really sad. A guy I’ve known for years, went to school with him and when I lived in San Diego he was stationed out there so we’d watch Bama games ever so often. He went off the radar a while back so I just figured we lost touch. Turns out he was sentenced to 40 years in prison for raping two underage girls. How horrible is that! I guess you really never know about someone. I had no idea he was capable of that. I’m still in shock about it. Feel so bad for people involved.
Onto some other things. Had an afternoon date Sunday and we saw Moneyball. It was really good! Think any business can apply the lesson in that movie about changing and growing with the times or you get left behind. We went to Drakes, one of my favorite places (great bloody marys) My date pointed out that I fidget constantly. She said I’m always shifting, leaning up, leaning back, popping knuckles, etc. Never really noticed I guess, although I’ve had other folks say stuff about it but I never paid attention to it. Could have been the two Red Bulls I had. LOL. Do you fidget a lot? Pop Your knuckles? I can’t be the only one that is always moving around.
Had a cook out for the Bama/Florida Game and we had “Gator” meat. It was my first time trying it. It taste like rubber chicken to me. Have you ever tried gator meat? What did you think? Thank goodness Alabama won. It’s been a good year so far.
We have been teasing some big announcements. The press release for one of the announcements was approved yesterday, so it should be any time now and the other HUGE announcement should be next week!
Talk to you soon.

I’m doing something this weekend I haven’t done in over 20 years: Seeing people with whom I went to high school!
My 25th reunion is here & I’ve decided to take the trip back to Hokes Bluff, Alabama to take part. They’ve had one or two
other reunions but we lived in California & I really wasn’t up for a 2,500 mile trip for a reunion. But now, at 43 years old & feeling
a little nostalgic, plus living much closer, I figure it’s time. Like anyone, I’m curious about my former classmates. Who will have changed the most? Who got heavy? Who got skinny? Who got bald? We were a small class so it won’t be any major throwdown, but
it should be fun to see adults who, the last time I saw them in person, were teens without a clue.
Have you done the 20+ year reunion? What were the biggest surprises? Any fights? Any hook-ups? I feel compelled to cause something to happen that will be remembered. I’ll keep you posted on what I decide & try to get pictures or video if the police are involved!

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.
