Your Hometown Country Connection


Hey everyone!! First let me say I hate writing about 

Let's see....

I'm orginally from Queens, NY moved to Citrus Country Florida when I was 13.. so guess that makes me a city/country kinda girl.

I always knew that I wanted to be an entertainer of some kind... even tried that whole acting deal (that didn't after growing up watching Oprah, Dick Clark, and Barbara Walters I wanted to be just like them or so I thought. After going through broadcasting school wanting to work on TV as a reporter/archor I realized my passion was really radio.

I graduated from CSB school of Broadcasting in 2008 and landed my first radio job the morning of graduation, that's something I have always been proud of. I later than moved to Orlando, FL where I was blessed in my career to work with those I use to listen to as a kid growing up. I wanted to take my career to the next level and found myself right here at WAYZ.
I have been blessed with a truly amazing family, my mother is my rock and my friends wow I don't know what I would do with out any of them. I am going to miss all of them but I am excited to now be here with all of you. Thanks for listening and for all the support I have been getting so far.

ERIC CHURCH is upset wtih ticket scalpers. He feels that his fans are getting ripped off. Ther was an order for 902 tickets that he canceled because it was illegally bought to his show in Minneapolis. He issued this statement: "A lot of acts just want to sell as many tickets as they can and they don't care who they sell them to. I want my fans to be the ones who buy tickets to my shows, and I want scalpers to back off. I can't stop ticket scalpers completely, but I can definitely make it hard for them." 

One would think because COLE SWINDELL is a country man that he would like to go fishing and hunting, right? But he doesn't he said quote "Luke Bryan's a huge hunter and fisher and I grew up playing more sports. Heck, when I'm off I use my free time to just hang and maybe go to a game or watch sports. I'm just more of a sports guy. It's funny, you sing country music and people think you're a huge hunter and fisher, but I just never really go into it."

BRANTLEY GILBERT is a big weight lifter but has had to stop because he is suffering from umbilical hernia. He said quote "I've got four tears in my stomach." But with all that Brantley just doesn't want to accept that it could be from weight lifting he said "I think I legitimately got it from singing"

CARRIE UNDERWOOD makes "Time" magazine's annual "Top 100 Most Influential People" 

Have you been wondering what VINCE GILL has been going lately? Well he's been listening to a lot of hip hop music, jazz and sports radio as well as comedy. He said quote "I love the thought of hearing something I haven't heard before. That's still magical to me, to find something I haven't heard before and be inspired by it. I occasionally turn on one of those pop station and go 'What are the kids listening to? Let me hear this KATY PERRY stuff and see why it's so cool." He goes on to say "And kind of artistry can be great, and at the end of the day you realize historically that all the things that were sustained had longevity because of great songs."

HUNTER HAYES released a live vision of his new song "You think you know Somebody" It's on his new album "Storyline" which is out May 6th.

CARRIE UNDERWOOD and ZACH SWON of THE SWON BROTHERS have more than just a reality show getting their careers started in common. Before "American Idol" and "The Voice" they shared a classroom. They both attended Oklahoma's Northeastern State College and were in the same music class. Zach said quote "The class was so small, there were probably only 8 people in it." 

MUSIC ROW released a list of country stars and their social media. TAYLOR SWIFT dominates in both Facebook and Twitter. She has 60 million LIKES on facebook and 40.4 million followers on Twitter. Check out the fulll list.

KEITH URBAN getting a new TV Show. He wants to let fans see what happens before the LIVE "Idol" shows. So he's going to be doing a weekly series called "Idol Chatter" on "E".  Personality I feel this is really smart on "Idols" end because chances of people actually staying after to watch "Idol" are more than likely going to he higher now which means boosting those ratings for "American Idol".

JANA KRAMER gets some new art work. She got a new feather tattoo. 

So the word is you should have some tissues handy if and when you watch TIM MCGRAW's sit down with OPRAH WINFREY. Tim shares a piece of his heart in the interview. He talks about his childhood, what he learned being a father and the family secret that changed his life forever. Tim's appearance on "Oprah's Master Class" airs on OWN June 8th. 

LUKE BRYAN's son seems to be a little artist. Five-year- old Bo decided the family piano needed some color. He covered the keys in black and red marker.  Luke saw the humor in this and tweeted "He's scrubbing on it now, Ha Funny stuff."  WOW that's some art work wouldn't you think?! LOL

ERIC CHURCH was opening for GEORGE STRAIT in January, but cut his finger the night before the show and did not to go to the emergency room because he didn't want to miss the show. He said quote "I was getting a toy out for my 2 year old. It was helf in with a wire tie so my father in law handed me his pocketknife. I cut through one of the ties and into the finger... it went all the way to the bone. I didn't go to the emergency room becaue I was worried the stitches would take me out of the show. I'm not missing this George Strait show!" More on Eric Church's accient.

Seems everytime we look BLAKE SHELTON and MIRANDA LAMBERT's marriage is in the paper. We know that Blake likes to joke around a lot, but he got serious during the "Today Show"because he is tired of all the talk about his marriage. He said quote "I would take this opportunity to clear the air. You might pick up a magazine or a tabloid any day of the week that'll say something about my relationship with Miranda... that it's in turmoil. And the truth is, I've never felt a stronger bond with... not only with her but any other human being in my life. Miranda and I... she's my life"  (he says it at about 2:23)

DAVE HAYWOOD of LADY ANTEBELLUM and his wife Kelli are expecting their first child. The group in all are so expected about the baby they tweeted "So excited for a new Baby A on the way in Sept! And it's a boy!" 

There were lots of runners at the Boston Marathon yesterday including DIERKS BENTLEY's wife Cassidy.

Sad lost in country music this past weekend KEVIN SHARP dies at the young age of 43. He had been battling a number of illnesses for a number of years. "Measure of a Man" was his biggest album. 

Making an appearance as themseleves on the tv show "Nashville" is KELLIE PICKLER and first lady MICHELLE OBAMA. The episode airs May 7th.

"Country Weekly"  has voted and names their "Hottest Bachelor of 2014"  to be CHRIS YOUNG. Check out who else maded that list. 

TIM MCGRAW talks about how no staging matters if the artist performing isn't enjoying themselves. He says quote "You can have every technology that's out there, you can have the biggest screens, and you can have the best lights and all that kind of stuff, but if you're not having fun, then they're not gonna have fun."

MIRANDA LAMBERT has announced that she is going to be taking a break from touring. She's excited but also terrifed. She's been working non-stop since she was 17 years old. But after being on the road with the "Locked and Reloaded Tour" with Dierks Bentley last year, Miranda realized that she needed a break. But fans shouldn't worry too much because there she's still in doing shows though out the year. She'll be with Jason Aldean for three shows on his "Burn It Down Tour" this summer and will also be on the road July and August performing songs from her album, "Platinum" out in stores June 3rd. 

KENNY CHESNEY is working on a new music is seems like he Tweeted yesterday "In studio working on new album. Can't wait for everyone to hear the new music' Well Kenny we can't wait either. 

Tour annouced for THE ZAC BROWN BAND they are calling it "The Great American Road Trip" and it kicks this summer May 24th. Opening for them will be KACEY MUSGRAVES but she'll only be with them for the first four shows. No word on it anyone will be replacing her after. For tickets or more info on the tour ZAC BROWN BAND

Taylor Swift crashes a bridal party. She promised one of her fans that she would be at her bridal shower on Sunday, and she did more than just that. She showed it with gifts. 

When BRETT ELDREDGE's single "Don't ya" hit number one in the chats he made a promise that he would jump out of an airplane and he did just that. Now he's promising if "Beat of the Music" tops chats this time he is going to swim with sharks. He said quote "I can't believe I actually might go shark diving. The song's climbing the charts and the more I sweat every day. But I'll be all right with trying it out. I'm gonna get a cage, though. I need a cage so if you all know anybody who has a shark cage I could borrow, that's fine." 

BLAKE SHELTON may very well be every woman's dream and not just because of his good looks. He does things for his wife MIRANDA LAMBERT like making dinner, drawing baths for her and even cleaning the house. Really does he have a bother? Or better yet does he teach a class? Probably not so boys just watch this video and maybe pick up some pointers...  ;-)

BLAKE SHELTON is going to be a Jersey boy for a day. Well not really but he well be in Atlantic City July 31st performing a beach concert on the Boardwalk. The concert is free and apart of the city's "DO AC" program of concerts and free entertainment. More details Do Atlantic City. 
One would think LUKE BRYAN would have "game" when it came to the ladies, but his now wife says otherwise. Caroline tells "People" "We hung out as friends and he never made a move one me. I kissed him first! He was always so scared of making a girl feel uncomfortable, he wouldnt cross a line." She also goes on to say that Luke is the same person on stage as he is off the stage. There is something about him that is't real. She says quote "He's just as silly at home as he is on stage. He walks around dancing all day, just being goofy."

Seems like everyon is trying to lose weight or be healthier and THOMAS RHETT is no different. He lost 30 pounds while he was on tour with JAKE OWEN. He says quote "Last summer I was out with Jake for three months and I worked out with him and his trainer every day and I did the Paleo diet, nothing but chicken, fish and broccoli. And I lost like 28 pounds in three months." He also added by saying he would never want to be that into a diet again because he was mean and not a nice person to be around.

DAN SMYERS of the duo DAN + SHAY was in a auto accident this past Tuesday focusing him to spend the day in the emergency. It wasn't anything to serious, but he did however break his wrist. He Tweeted a PHOTO of it and said "The Show must go on" and it's very true because they are currently on tour opening for HUNTER HAYES and as new artist that's not something they want to miss out on.

If you didn't know CRAIG MORGAN left the US Army to follow his dreams of country music, but he still is dedicated to the US Troops. This Spring he'll be making his 11th trip overseas to entertain the troops serving. He also helps support spouses and dependents who remain here in the states with this work called "Folds of Honor and Jack Daniels Toadt to Troops." 

"Lie" is a song off TRACY LAWRENCE's latest album "Headlights, Taillgihts and Radios" in the video for it a guy catches his best friend with his girl. This is based on a true story from his past. Tracy says quote "This is a scenario that I went through when I was in high school.  My buddy has just graduated, so we was out working during the week and he'd come back home on the weekends. I was suppose to be looking after his girl, you know a buddy-buddy thing.. and we hooked up.  We were at a high school dance one weekend , and he came back in. I was dancing with her, and he tapped me on the shoulder. I turned around and be laid one on me. I never saw it coming."

A woman's closet is incomplete with out a "little black dress". It's almost a closet MUST and here's why. They go with EVERYTHING and can be used for almost every single event/dinner/ and or occasion. You can never go wrong with a little black dress.

 Here I put together some of my favorite black dresses. In the first picture I paired up a simple black dress with a belt, leggings and from riding boots for a night out downtown. Simple with a little edge to it.

 In the middle photo I kept it a little more simple because the dress has a lot going on so the more the dress has the more simple of a look you need because you want the dress to stand out for it's self. In this case I choice to wear leggings with a litte bit of a design, and a pair of black pumps. And that's all you need for a dress with that must design.

 In last picture I'm wearing a one shoulder dress again keeping it really simple. The dress has some silver on the longer seleve. So I paired it up with a pair of silver pumps just to make it pop a little and not to muc black going on.

 Little black dresses and be a simple or as fancy as you would like them. And the best part they will NEVER go out of style. So next time you are out and about and see that "Little Black Dress" that catches your eye GET IT because you will wear it more than anything else you have in your closet.

KELLIE PICKLER as her priorities straight and what comes first to her you wonder? Well her husband Kyle Jacobs and their marriage of course. She said quote "It's all about getting away from the craziness and the hustle and bustle of the world and just being with your significant other. We all need to make time for that. You don't want to be married to a stranger. I know I don't. We are our number one priority. Work always comes second." 

Seems as though all the late night shows are getting new host and "The Late Night Show" is no different. DAVID LETTERMAN will be leaving "The Late Night Show" sometime next year and producers have wasted no time finding his replacement STEPHEN COLBERT will be his replacement.

ERIC CHURCH's World Tour is going to be bigger than we all expected. One of his four openers will be DWIGHT YOAKAM. The other three artist are Brothers Osborne, Brandy Clark, and Halestorm. Those artist will switch off on selected shows. The tour starts Steptember 11th in Louisiana for TICKETS.

RASCAL FLATTS caught lip singing during Sunday's ACM Awards. Most of the time when artist lip sing you aren't tell, but in this case it was so bad that they realized they had to speak about it. Singer GARY LEVOX had been losing his voice and having problems to do over singing at shows earlier that week. The band didn't want to let down the ACMA's so the figured they would lip-sing, they had done it before and didn't think it would be a problem until it was. They annouced on Facebook saying "After having performer several shows earlier in the week, Gary lost his voice." 

Would you have every guessed that KEITH URBAN was a high school drop out? Well he was. He left school at the young age of 15. He said quote "I quit school at 15. I was hopeless at school. I was out. I would've left sooner if I could, but you've gotta legally stay until you're 15 in Australia." While Keith isn't saying "kids quit school" he goes on to add " Look, I'm always very careful to not have parents think I support kids leabing school at a young age because I dont necessarily. All I can speak to is my own experince the biggest education I got was when I hit the road anf got life's education. That was everyrhing school didn't have to teach me at the time." 

"Us Weekly" is calling JASON ALDEAN's  new lady a "homewrecker". Well BRITTANY KERR was Jason's date for the ACM Awards Sunday night and after the two had dinner and gambled a little.

"Drunk On A Plane" DIERKS BENTLEY's song about a guy who is about to get married but gets stood up at the alter and has to go on the honeymoon alone because there was a nonrefund on it. So to Cancun he went with his broken heart and thoughts. Dierks said this wasn't based on a true story BUT says quote "I have never been jilted at the alter, but I have had a marriage proposal rejected. All you can do is pray there's a good return policy for the ring, get drunk and carry on." Here's the VIDEO if you haven't seen it yet.

LUKE BRYAN has been doing a lot of hosting these days from spring break parties to the ACMs. With all this fun Luke decided team up with "Us Weekly" so we can learn 25 things about him that may not have known otherwise. CHECK IT OUT my favorite is # 13 popcorn is my guilty pleasure too.

Lots of talk and wondering whether or not GEORGE STRAIT "ignored" MIRANDA LAMBERT as she was trying to give him a high five as he was walking up to recieve his ACM award for "Entertainer of the Year" I feel he just didn't see her. Take a look for yourself and see what you think. AWKWARD!!! 

LONESTAR lead guitarist MICHAEL BRITT got married over the weekend and posted a cute picture of him and his new bride, Latashja Hanson. PHOTO

Oh TAYLOR SWIFT she has been known for some mean dance moves during events and award shows and lucky for us there's always been to be a camera around to catch the action. Well "Eonline" has put together some of the BEST Taylor moves with some get titles like "The My Hips are so Truthful". If you want to learn to dance like Taylor TAKE A LOOK
