The National Wild Turkey Federation Lists Texas in the “Turkey Hunting’s Top Ten States”

If you ask me, it's no surprise that Texas made the National Wild Turkey Federation's (NWTF) "Turkey Top Ten States." What did surprise me is that Texas was No.9 on the list. So the numbers don't confuse anyone, the NWTF reported that Texas was number nine on the number of gobblers harvested last year. The NWTF predicts the 2014 forecast for Turkey hunting in Texas looks awesome. Check it out.

Big & Rich – Official Music Videos

Big & Rich is made up of Big Kenny who started out as a solo act and John Rich who's a founding member of the highly successful country group Lonestar. I describe them as the strange meets the unusual and when these two come together as a group, anything goes musically. From a serious ballad like "8th of November" to the fun and quirky "Save a Horse Ride a Cowboy." Their videos are as colorful as Big & Rich are, check them out for yourself and enjoy.

Rudy’s List of Movies and Songs to Get You Into the St. Patrick’s Day Spirit

Okay the secrets out I'll admit it, growing up I was (and still am) a huge fan of musicals. With St. Patrick's Day upon us, I thought I'd share a few of my favorite movies and songs that put me in the St. Paddy's Day spirit. Growing up, I remember watching John Wayne in the "Quiet Man", Judy Garland in "Nellie Kelly" or Mario Lanza in "The Student Prince". Those movies and musicals always came on TV around St. Patrick's Day. Check out these early-day music videos.

The Top Songs From the Spring of 2001

The Spring of 2001 was definitely the year for Brooks and Dunn, country's dynamic duo held on to the No.1 spot for six weeks in a row, causing other songs to come up to No.2 and them fall off. The song "Ain't Nothing 'Bout You" appeals to all West Texans because it's the way we talk. To prove my point, ain't nothin' 'bout B&D I don't like. Besides their harmonies are freaking awesome. The Spring of 2001 also had other amazing songs like it.

Tracy Lawrence is Back With a New Song “Lie”

I for one will never get tired of hearing Tracy Lawrence, he has one of those unique voices that sets him apart from all the others. Tracy sings songs like we 'guys' really feel. For example in his new song "Lie", I believe he captures how a guy would ask his buddies "hey, just tell me she misses me and that she's all tore up." I'm excited Tracy is back and can't wait to hear more from a guy that lives out his songs at times. Check out his newest song "Lie" both recorded and the acoustic "live" version. I like the recorded version better, what do you think?
