Dave Wheaton

I wasn't born in Texas, but I got here as quick as I could. I'm originally from Battle Creek, Michigan (home of Tony the Tiger). I've got two kids who take up most of my time out of the office, but when I get "me time", I'm either taking in some live music or a sporting event. Since relocating, I also fell in love with the Texas music scene. I've been lucky enough to be nominated for DJ of the Year 4 straight years by the Academy of Texas Music, and was the 2009 recipient of the Academy's Palmwood Award. I'm a huge sports fan, and my loyalties are with the Michigan Wolverines, Chicago White Sox and (sorry) the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Watch Whiskey Myers’ New Video for ‘Virginia’

I always look forward to hearing news about Whiskey Myers, and it's usually good news. Lead singer Cody Cannon checked in a few months back for a progress update, and a lot has been going on with the boys from East Texas since that interview. The latest on WM is about their newest single, 'Virginia'. It's already a hit on Texas charts, as the country rock ballad shows no sign of slowing down. And now the guys have debuted a music video for 'Virginia', airing nationally on CMT.

Being a White Sox, Red Wings and Michigan Sports Fan in Abilene is Challenging

It's easy to be a fan of the hometown team. I know, because until 2006 my son and I were lucky enough to have our favorite teams around our hometown of Battle Creek, Michigan showing on my TV regularly. And I would be able to go see a game in person from time to time. Now that I've moved to Abilene, I'm left out of the loop. I can't make a day trip to see my favorite teams anymore. Regional sports teams like the Texas Rangers, Dallas Cowboys, Aggies and Longhorns, and even the Dallas Stars are easy to come across on TV in Abilene, but not my White Sox, Red Wings and Wolverines.
