Rockie Lynne On Supporting The Troops & Offering Aid To Gold Star Families

Rockie Lynne On Supporting The Troops & Aid To Gold Star Families

I remember playing “Lipstick” and “Do We Still” by Rockie Lynne when I worked in radio. I loved both of those songs and was super excited to get to see him in concert back in the day with Carrie Underwood. Rockie Lynne is so much more than a talented musician though. He does so much for the troops and those less fortunate that I really think it was an honor to get to talk to him and write this piece on him today. Check out this Rockie Lynne interview and let me know what you think about this super cool North Carolina native.

2018 Merlefest Initial Lineup & Midnight Jam Announced #Merlefest

2018 Merlefest Initial Lineup & Midnight Jam Announced #Merlefest

A few years ago {maybe 10 or so) I went to Merlefest for the first time. So. Much. Music. I have to say, it was pretty amazing. There was entertainment and vendors everywhere. And I got to see THE Emmylou Harris. Amazing, people. There were so many types of music there that I really think most people could find something that they not only liked, but loved. And I have to say, the 2018 Merlefest Initial Lineup is looking pretty sweet. Check it out below.

Earlier today, I got to chat with Critter Fuqua from Old Crow Medicine Show. As everyone else in the free world, I am familiar with, and a fan of, “Wagon Wheel” from the Grammy winning group, but I have just started learning about their other music. Um, it rocks, people – especially the songs, “Shit Creek” {my personal fave}, “Brushy Mountain Conjugal Trailer” and “Sweet Amarillo,” all off their album, “Remedy.” It’s interesting to learn that these Grand Ole Opry members made their way around North America in the early days on money they earned while busking. Not sure what that is? Read on to find out.

Applebee’s Grilled Watermelon & Spicy Shrimp Salad Review + More #Woodfired

Applebee's Grilled Watermelon & Spicy Shrimp Salad Review + More #Woodfired

About 15 years ago I lived near Martinsville, Va., and there was an Applebee’s there. I tried it a few times and it was good, but it was never a restaurant that I frequented. I am not really sure why. It just didn’t grab me for some reason. But I went to another one closer to home with a friend recently and it was pretty dang good. They also had great prices {I think I remember them being pretty expensive back in the day} so I decided to start eating there more often. I have been seeing advertisements for the new Wood Fired Menu and thought it looked really good, so Jay and I decided to eat at an Applebee’s in Winston Salem, NC just a couple days ago.

PF Chang’s China Bistro Review {Winston Salem, NC}

PF Chang's China Bistro Review {Winston Salem, NC}

Almost a year ago, Winston Salem, NC, got it’s very own PF Changs. Jay and I had never eaten at a PF Changs before, so we decided to try it out this past week. For those of you unfamiliar with PF Changs, they serve Asian food. When we walked in, it did not look like the typical Chinese and Asian restaurants that we had dined at, in the past. It felt more like a modern restaurant/bar that you would find in a city like downtown Charlotte. With candles on the tables and dark woods, it felt very contemporary.

5 Classic TV Shows To Introduce To Your Kids Today

5 Classic TV shows to introduce to your kids today.

Many kids are growing up on Nick Jr and Cartoon Network and think that classic TV shows and movies are boring. If you ask a teenager to name a movie that starred Cary Grant, John Wayne or Doris Day, many will probably look at you with a blank look and assume you are as ancient as the dinosaurs {a look I know all too well}. Try a show of hands to see what teenager or child has seen an episode of Gilligan’s Island, Hogan’s Heroes or Gomer Pyle. Kids just don’t understand that classic TV shows that are in black and white are still hilarious pieces of entertainment.
