Been wondering what Eddie and Troy have been up to? Well, the wait is almost over! After signing to a new record label back in February, Montgomery Gentry have a brand new single called “Headlights” that is ready to be released.
It “definitely was a standout of the songs we cut for the new album”, said Troy Gentry in reference to the new tune. “It’s such a fun song to play live, the crowds are loving it”. It’s the lead single from the duo’s first studio album since 2012, and they’re shooting for a spring 2015 release.
Wanna hear “Headlights” for yourself? Here it is!
After kicking off his comeback world tour with what turned out to be 10 shows in Chicago, Garth Brooks has apparently elected to try some southern hospitality as he announced the next stop on the trek…Atlanta!
The show will be at Phillips Arena on September 19th. His wife, Georgia native Trisha Yearwood, will be the opening act. It’ll be Garth’s first Atlanta visit (at least as a “business” trip) in 18 years.
He’s trying to keep ticket prices in line, so when they go on sale next Friday (August 8th), they’ll be available for about $70 bucks.
Now…we’re still waiting to hear when he’s gonna come see us here in Kansas. What about it, Garth???
Jean Francois Gravelet, aka Charles Blondin, stepped out over Niagara Falls for the first tightrope walk over the famous waterfall. He did it on a three-inch rope stretched 1,166 feet!
…because he’s one of the best tight-rope-walkers the world has ever seen, that’s why! After his first trip across Niagara Falls, he actually went across several more times! Instead of the boring “hey, let’s just walk across” – he did it: blindfolded, in a sack, on stilts, pushing a wheelbarrow, carrying a person on his back, sitting down midway while he cooked and ate an omelet (WTH?!), and standing on a chair with only one chair leg on the rope!
Ok, nevermind. Once again…WHY???
President Eisenhower signed a law officially making the nation’s motto In God We Trust! The law made it the official motto of The United States, and it also mandated that the phrase be printed on all American currency.
Another big reason they passed this in 1956, was because that was a tense time in this country during the Cold War. The United States wanted to distinguish itself from the Soviet Union, which promoted state atheism.
President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Medicare Bill into law
Teamsters President Jimmy Hoffa disappeared! He was trying to recapture control of the union he once headed.
He was last seen getting into an automobile that pulled up outside a suburban Detroit restaurant. The car drove away and he was never seen again.
Not sure of what happened to Hoffa, but his story made a great movie:
By the way,
A Michigan judge declared Jimmy Hoffa officially dead.
and then lastly…
1987 World Champion Bull Rider Lane Frost was killed by a bull named Taking Care Of Business, at The Daddy Of ‘Em All, the Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo in Cheyenne, Wyoming. Lane dismounted after a successful 91-point ride, and was hit in the ribs by the bull’s horn. A broken rib pierced his heart. He was 25.
When I was a kid, my parents took me to Cheyenne. They bought me a video about the Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo, and on the end of that video was a tribute to Lane. The tribute was by The George Michael Sports Machine. I LOVE this tribute, it’s the best one made about Lane in my opinion. Here it is:
He also had the best quote about Lane as well:
“A champion in the arena, a champion in life – that was Lane Frost” – George Michael
Over time, a lot more tributes to Lane have shown up
There was, of course, the movie 8 Seconds:
and, as of late, Aaron Watson wrote July In Cheyenne for Lane
Rest In Piece to one of the greatest bull riders to ever live!

Here are some guidelines to help you figure out when to wash various things in your house… and even on your own body.
Sheets: Once a week- Sheets should be washed often to remove a buildup of debris, dust, sweat and other icky things. Use hot water and a hot dryer cycle to kill all germs.
Cars: Every one to three weeks- wash it once a week if you live near a large body of water, somewhere with extreme weather conditions, drive a lot or park outside.
Dogs: As needed- Let your nose be your guide! If your pooch is smelly or feels oily to the touch, then it’s time to wash. This ranges from once a month to 4 times a year.
Jeans: Every four to five wears- This is okay as long as they’re not stained. Over washing can cause them to wear out prematurely.
Bras: Every 3 to 4 wears- A general rule is that you should never wear the same bra two days in a row, because elastic needs time to reshape.
Your Face: Every night (and possibly in the morning)- Cleansing every night prevents clogged pores and breakouts. If you have oily skin, wash again in the morning.
Your Hair: Every other day- Washing your hair every day strips it of natural oils, so it’s best to shampoo on alternating days at most.
Window Screens: Once a year- When warm weather arrives, it’s time to de-grime and let the fresh air in.
Windows: Twice a year- preferably with a squeegee.
Mattress: Every six months- Believe it or not, it’s pretty easy to do this. Vacuum the top, then wipe down with a lightly damp, soapy cloth.
Oven: Every six months- Not all ovens are self-cleaning. If yours isn’t, set it up to clean while you sleep.
Pots and Pans: Three times a year
Carpet: Once a year.
Purse: Every week- Field tests have shown that purses sometimes carry traces of E. coli, most often on the bottom, which rests on germy surfaces.
Dishwasher: Every month- pour vinegar into a dishwasher-safe cup, then place the cup upright on (empty) dishwasher’s top rack.
Sink and Drain: Every day- Because the kitchen sink has the second-highest concentration of microorganisms in the home, it should be cleaned daily.

Forbes Magazine has released it’s list of the top 12 highest paid country acts, and there’s a new #1. Toby Keith earned an estimated $65 million from his endorsement deal with Ford, his ever-expanding chain of “I Love This Bar & Grill” restaurants, and his own record label. That’s slightly better than the $64 million earned by Taylor Swift, who was the top wage earner among country stars in 2013.
But Toby, ever the gentleman, helped soothe any bad feelings by calling Taylor “the BEST female country songwriter in the last 20 years” in a recent interview. That’s pretty lofty praise indeed!
