Lady Antebellum going into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame

Congratulations all around…Lady Antebellum and Jeff Foxworthy are the newest members of the Georgia Music Hall of Fame!

The announcement was made on Friday, and the trio will officially be welcomed in on October 11th.

Both Dave Haywood and Charles Kelley are natives of the Peach State, but bandmate Hillary Scott was born in Tennessee.  Normally, that might cause an issue for these two fiercely rival states, but Haywood points out that, as far as they’re all concerned, Hillary is an honorary Georgian. “She’s spent a lot of time there in Atlanta and Athens”, said Haywood. “We’ve shown her the Georgia Theatre and Eddie’s Attic.”

He went on to say how honored the band is.  “We’ve never been a part of something like this before,” he said. “It’s pretty special hearing the words ‘Lady Antebellum’ and ‘hall of fame’ in the same sentence. We really feel honored to be included.”


“Slapgate” settled…with a chat?

Well, it looks like Tim McGraw might just get his wish.  After a video of Tim swatting an overzealous fan at a concert in Atlanta a few weeks ago surfaced on the internet, Tim found himself on the hotseat.  In the video, a fan who was later identified at Jesslyn Taylor appears to grab Tim’s leg while he was performing on a catwalk.  She apparently ripped his bluejeans and nearly pulled him off-balance.

According to Tim…he reacted “instinctively” and gave the young lady a swat on the head.  She was then led out of the concert by security.  The situation threatened to turn ugly when Taylor hired a personal injury lawyer.

But today, a statement released by Tim’s team says that “The matter between Tim McGraw and Jesslyn Taylor stemming from an Atlanta concert has been mutually resolved the old-fashioned way–with a simple conversation”

So we’re left to assume that they each apologized to the other.  That seems very unlikely, with lawyers involved.  After all, what’s 40% of an apology?

K-State newcomers get haircuts

Well, it’s been a busy week out at the Vanier Football Complex.

Fall training camp got underway as the Wildcats prepare for the upcoming season.  Then, on Wednesday, legendary head coach Bill Snyder railed against how college athletics has “sold out”.  And now, with the home opener just three weeks away…the incoming freshmen got haircuts.

And not good haircuts.   See for yourself.

Hank Williams, Jr. fell about 500 feet down a mountain in Montana!

Sporting his new look – sunglasses and a thick beard, and after two years of surgeries, he returned to music…

And was cooler than ever!!


President Richard Nixon announced in a national broadcast address that he would resign his office at noon the following day.

His decision to resign came in the wake of new revelations connected to the Watergate scandal. Nixon said he “deeply regretted” any injuries he had caused, and said that some of his judgement had been wrong.

This makes Forrest Gump sad!


The US Olympic Men’s Basketball Team, the Dream Team, defeated Croatia 117-85 to win the gold medal!

Nice win, but…

How did they let Croatia score 85 points of them?!


And then lastly,

…all good things must come to an end (apparently)…


Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman divorced after 11 years of marriage!

I think she’s better off!

Drunk Wife Makes “Grilled Cheeses”

A man heard his wife coming home in the middle of the night and recorded her “making grilled cheeses” by melting string cheese over a plateful of goldfish crackers while swigging wine and insisting she’s not drunk.

This Day In History – August 7

1882 - The famous feud between the Hatfields and McCoys broke out!

The Hatfields were a family from southern West Virginia and the McCoys were from Eastern Kentucky. By the time the feud ended, about 100 men, women and children had either been killed or wounded.

And you though your family feuded like the Hatfields & McCoys! 


Patsy Cline reached number one with I Fall to Pieces!

That’s one of the best country songs of all-time!


Phillipe Petit of France, became the first tightrope walker to cross from one skyscraper to another, as he walked on a rope for 1,350 feet – between the span of the two towers of the World Trade Center in New York City!


Crazy man! That’s just crazy, man!


An escape artist named Bill Shirk escaped from a straightjacket in 22-and-a-half seconds in Indianapolis!

Not too bad, right? Well, when you consider he was dangling 1,610 feet in the air, suspended from a helicopter, I don’t think that was too bad at all!!


Garth Brooks performed a free concert aired on HBO from New York City’s Central Park!

The crowd was reported to have as many as 750,000 people! 

Be sure to get your very own video tape of the show!

and then lastly…


Barry Bonds hit his 756th home run to become Major League Baseball’s all-time home run leader! He beat the previous home run record set by Hank Aaron in 1976.

Despite his success, baseball fans were skeptical of his record amid rumors of steroid use…

Because of that, it’s Hank & Babe’s list, in my opinion.
