As a former Warrick County 4-H'er, the county fair has always been a big deal to me. This year will be the first year this fair has ever had a concert. Marshall Entertainment welcomes The Bobby Clark Band, Andrea Wirth, and many other local singers & bands to the Warrick County Fairgrounds, July 19th starting at 7pm.
We told you a few weeks ago about the Lady Antebellum prom contest in which one high school would be chosen, via video entries, to have Lady Antebellum perform at their prom. Although the winner won't be announced until the 20th, the finalists & their submissions were released and Henryville, Indiana is one of the finalists, with a tear-jerking reminder of the devastation they lived and continue to endure after a tornado nearly wiped them off the map. While they're video is heartbreaking to watch, a cool story does come of it.
It's no secret I'm a diehard Miranda fan, but her new single, "Over You," is such an amazing single with a bittersweet backstory, I had to share this as her music video for it debuted last week. She & husband, Blake Shelton, wrote this emotional tune in memorandum to Blake's brother, who died when he was young in a car accident around Christmas time. While the song is already a tough one for her to get through, she released the single & filmed the music video during one of the most difficult months of her life.

As Rusty mentioned in his blog yesterday, I will be moving to Fort Wayne to pursue a new opportunity in radio. While I hate to leave my hometown and will miss all of the wonderful folks I've met along the way, I am very excited to take on this challenge and hope you will join me during this time of celebration. I would also like to think everyone at South Central Communications for their friendship and the knowledge they've shared with me during my time here. I couldn't possibly portray the level of professionalism and care you have treated
For those of you wondering why Tommy, Rusty and I may have mentioned fuzzy, pink things (primarily headphones) recently...it is due to my recent purchase of new, pink & incredibly fuzzy headphones! Tommy and I also have a running battle on Facebook in which we abuse each other's status's when the other forgets to logout in the studio. The content of the status's have ranged from monkey-butt powder to leopard print under garments and recently, I may have upped Tommy a little more than he wanted.
