Brad Paisley – Shay’s Spotlight Artist of the Week

Brad Paisley is one of my favorite artists, not just because of his music but for his person as well. I think Brad has a great personality that most people get along with, similar to George Strait. He has great music, talent, humor, work ethic, and a love of the business so I chose Brad to be this weeks spotlight artist.

Dave Meets John – Abilene Subway Employee and Classical Guitarist

I was out with my son, enjoying a sandwich at Subway at the end of their Saturday lunch rush. As we were polishing off our $5 footlong and getting ready to hit the road, I couldn't help but notice a small orange amp at one of the tables behind me.

Watch Miranda Lambert’s New “Automatic” Music Video

Miranda Lambert just released the music-video for 'Automatic', a song that takes her back to a time. Heck, I remember recording the countdown shows myself, just to have a copy of the newest songs. As I watch 'Automatic', I remember a small West Texas town sitting on the porch listening to some count-down tunes over and over again. Thanks Miranda for the trip down memory lane. Check it out, I think you'll find yourself in there too.

The New Luke Bryan Song “Play It Again” Has All the Markings of a Big Hit Song

Luke Bryan is not wasting anytime releasing a song that's got all the markings of a big hit song. "Play It Again" has the pretty girl with tan legs, sitting on a tailgate something about Georgia plates and a radio playing her favorite song. I personally predict this one will spend a few weeks at No.1 on the hot country charts. Give it a listen and tell me what you think.

Moonshine Bandits New “Throwdown” Video Features The Lacs

I'll say one thing about the Moonshine Bandits and The Lacs, these guys have great timing. Just when I'm getting cabin fever from the cold weather.They release their new single "Throwdown." It's exactly what the doctor ordered, a good ole fashioned fun in the mud throw-down. Say what you want about country-rap but I love it, I became a fan because of the Lacs and the Moonshine Bandits. Check it out and enjoy.

Shania Twain – Shay’s Spotlight Artist of the Week

This weeks artist spotlight goes to Shania Twain. Why? Because I think she is a musical/marketing genius. I know over the years a lot of the credit was given to her, now, ex-husband Mutt Lange but I think Shania had a lot to do with it too. After a long hiatus, divorce, raising her son and a 2nd marriage, she's back at it with a residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
