  • Let's Meet the KTTS St. Jude Jam Artists...

    In case you missed the announcement this morning, the KTTS St. Jude Jam is happening again this year. This time around, it's March 14th at the Ramada Oasis Convention Center. I could be more pumped than I am, but that'd be dangerous. So, let's just say that I'm super pumped for the lineup we have this year.

  • Thank You for My 3 Years at KTTS!!!

    Dear Listeners,

  • American Idol Is Back!!!

    I'm a huge 'American Idol' fan. I've watched every season since it started.... Some more than others, but still, I've watched a ton of it over the years. You see all of these new shows like 'The Voice' and 'X-Factor' and you know they're trying to reach what 'Idol' had when it first started. It was huge. It's still pretty big, but not like it was. I'm a fan of it more than the other shows, because it is the original.

  • Party Tonight & You're Invited!!!

    Call me crazy, but I like fun. I like it a lot. That's why I'll be at Midnight Rodeo tonight. I'm real pumped for Chase Rice to put on a great show as part of the KTTS Catch a Rising Star Concert Series.

  • 2013 Golden Globe Winners

    I did not watch the Golden Globe Awards last night. It'd be kinda pointless for me to do so, because I'd be completely lost. I've only seen one of the movies or tv shows that won an award. Although, I do like to see the winners, that way I know what I need to watch. Well, here is that list....

  • Chick Flick vs. Chick Flick

    Nicolas Sparks rocks. Well, I assume. I've never read any of his books, but I've seen several of his movies. I like to do manly things like hunt, watch & play sports, eat steaks & a lot of other things. But, I do enjoy a good chick flick. I feel that a majority of men do, I'm just one of the few that will admit it.

  • 3 Artists I'm Excited About in 2013

    This year is off to a great start, musically. There are a few lesser known artists in particular that I think will all have big years. All 3 are very talented and all 3 have great singles to kick off 2013.

  • My Day Back in High School

    I surprised myself when I showed up for Halfway's Career Day today. I expected myself to head straight for the Principal's office out of habit. I didn't. In fact, I went the whole day without being sent to the Principal's office. My mom would be proud.

  • How Awesome Was 2006?

    OK, you might have been expecting a review of 2012, but that's been done before. I want to talk about one specific event that changed my life in 2006.

  • Hey Restaurants.... Stop Making Cash Angry!

    I like to eat out. I say that because I like food, but hate to cook. It has nothing to do with me liking to try new things. I pretty much go to about 10 different places and just rotate them. Well, after this past week, 2 of those restaurants will be removed from my rotation.

  • My Top 5 Songs of the Year

    It's all come down to this. My week full of countdowns is ending with a big one. This is huge, you guys. OK, maybe that's a little dramatic, but this was definitely the hardest list for me to narrow down. We were lucky in the country music world this year. There were plenty of good songs released to radio within the last 12 months.

  • My Top 5 Springfield Concerts of the Year

    Alright, we've already gone over the fact that I love lists that come out at the end of the year. Well, I also thoroughly enjoy going to concerts. I work most of the country concerts in Springfield, so I am lucky enough to see a majority of them.

  • My Top 5 Albums of the Year

    There are few things I enjoy more than lists. That's my favorite part about the end of the year non-holiday related. I love countdowns and 'best-ofs' that happen at the end of the year. I guess it's just an opportunity to reflect on the best and worst parts of the year.

  • My Favorite Interaction With An Artist Ever

    I'm not stupid (debatable, I'm sure). I know how fortunate I am to have the job that I have. After concerts, I usually hear "you're so lucky" about 100 times. Everyone who tells me that is right. I've been blessed with many great experiences thanks to my job. Last night was one of them. If nothing special would have happened last night, it still would have been a great night. I saw 4 very talented artists, talked to some great listeners & was once again reassured of how fortunate I really am. But, something special did happen... Let me preface this story by saying I'm a huge Thomas Rhett fan. As he said on stage last night, his first 'radio stop' of his career was at KTTS. So, I got to see him perform in our conference room in January of this year. I was so impressed that day, I started looking into him. I was super impressed with him as a singer, as a songwriter and as a person. Since then, I've been a huge supporter of his. The story: The green room is where all of the artists hang out before and after their set. We had some things stored in there that we needed towards the end of the night, so we were going back and forth, carrying boxes out of the room. While we were doing so, Thomas Rhett and his record label representative, George, were the only ones in there. I've met and been around both of them several times, so I'm fairly comfortable around them. I first joked with Thomas, "I can't believe you didn't call me up to do the rap part of 'Front Porch Junkies'." He then replied "Dude, you were nowhere to be found, besides, you would have choked anyway." I laughed and agreed with him. Ice, broken. Now I could ask him what I really wanted to ask. Thomas has a song called 'Ride Around With You' that I've been obsessed with since I heard it. I've only heard a demo of it, but it may be my favorite song, lyrically, ever. I have always wondered why he has never actually recorded it. So I asked. He was surprised I had even heard it, since there's like one YouTube video of the song (which I can't find now). I assured him that I had and I loved it. He then gave me some good news: "We're actually heading into the studio this week and that song is in the pile of songs to record." My heart smiled a little. That would have been enough for me, because he answered a question I had had for several months. What happened next was just unbelievable. He then asked me if I knew the words and I confirmed that I did. So, he grabbed his guitar. I thought he wanted me to sing. "I don't sing" I told him. "Just get me started," he replied. He couldn't even remember the first line to his song that he had written. I had to help him with it. After he was reminded of the lyrics, he proceeded to play about a minutes worth of the song. Coolest thing ever. Again, he expressed his surprise for me thinking so highly of the song. I told him it was a killer song and then asked George if I got a cut of the earnings if it became a hit. They laughed. I wasn't joking. After slacking off for those few minutes, I figured I should get back to work. So, I started heading out of the room. I got one last shot in: "You're welcome when that song goes #1, Thomas." Boom. A Costnaza-like line to leave the room on. I think they laughed. Yes, I choose to believe that they did.

  • KTTS 40th Birthday Bash - Answering Your Questions!

    You could say I'm a little excited about tomorrow. The KTTS SoMo Farm & Ranch 40th Birthday Bash is finally here. This is a little different than most concerts, so I'm here to make sure you're prepared. I've listed some things you 'Need-To-Know' (get it, like KTTS Need-To-Know News? Classic.) below. Hopefully this answers some of your questions.

  • American Country Award Predictions

    Another country music award show is tonight. It seems like there's a new one every month, but I'm not complaining. The American Country Awards are on tonight at 7 on Fox. Don't take this the wrong way, but the ACAs are kinda like the clearance rack of country music award shows. They just don't seem as important at the ACMs or the CMAs. I'll watch regardless. Like I do with all of these award shows, I've made predictions on who I think will win each category. This is a fan voted event, so that changes my predictions a little.

  • No Shave November For St. Jude - Final Day

    I'm sure the ladies will be disappointed tomorrow. I finally get to shave my beard after growing it out for a month. Actually, let me rephrase that... I'm sure the ladies will be disappointed after the weekend, because obviously I'm going down to the Cash Stache (a lady killer) for the weekend. Anyway, disappointed females or not, it's been a successful month. A big thanks to everyone who has donated to such a great cause.

  • What To Do In Vegas???

    A week from today, I'll be waking up in Vegas... That should be a song. Anyway, as of Monday, I'll be Vegas bound. Assuming I don't win the Powerball tonight, I plan on getting rich in Vegas. I'll be there for a few days, but I can only make so much money. I need some ideas on what to do with the other part of my trip.

  • No Shave November For St. Jude - Day 26

    It's almost done. I can officially shave my face on Saturday. It's been an itchy ride, but once again, I loved doing No Shave November for St. Jude. Last year, I kept it going until January, but I think I might be shaving at midnight on Friday this year!
