For those that joined us two years ago, at our first annual 10 Man Jam, you'll remember an appearance & performance by Katie Armiger. Her current single is climbing the charts (Better In A Black Dress).
Katie has just signed a deal to be a part of "Beautiful & Bold" Zine Pak, made by DOVE. You'll find it in Wal-Mart stores. This is a great opportunity for a young artist, gaining some national exposure at one of the largest retail chains in America.
Inside, there is an interview with Katie and other famous females, including; Lauren Alaina, Vanessa Carlton, Nelly Furtado, and more! There is a 12 song cd that is available, too! This cd is from each of the artists featured.
Katie's song is called "I WILL BE". It's a special offer that includes the magazine, nail decals, and coupons from Dove. If you'd like to pick it up, it'll set you back $7 and available at walmart.com as well...or, free with the purchase of three full size Dove products.
Pick it up, next time you are at the store.
It May Not Be What Francis Scott Key Had In Mind....
The Star Spangled Banner is the most revered songs in the United States. People from all over the world can't say that they have the luxury & freedom that we do as Americans. Because of the fight that our men & women of the military have committed to do, we can hold our heads up high & say that we live in a great country. Yes, we have problems, but our overall situation is much better than other countries.
Even people that bash the United States & burn our flag - have that right to do so in our country. Do I agree, absolutely not!
In America, I get to go where I want, when I want, and do things that I want, including listen to the music that I want. I recently ran across this video & wanted to share it with our KTEX listeners. It's our national anthem...done by a rock band. I had mixed feelings when I first heard it - it started pretty cool with a nice bass line to it, but then it got "rocky-er"...
From the conservative side of me, I wasn't sure about it - but on the other hand, I thought - that's what makes this country great - these guys just put a different spin on the song. Is it ok? Or, should the national anthem be a solemn song? You decide. Give us feedback on our Facebook fan page where you found this link. Njoy!
Last week, I had a chance to meet Jay Dominguez. Jay works at Hermes Music in McAllen. It was a pleasure to hear that he was a fan of country music & even had his own country band, years ago in San Antonio. Jay is a knowledgeable person and loaded with stories.
During our visit, Jay shared this video with me. Its about our culture and the effort made by people to make their lives better. "Claro Que Se Puede" - it's possible...features Willie Nelson, Carlos Santana, Del Castillo, and Los Lonely Boys.
Listen to the words & njoy!
Who is your favorite country artist? We may all have a difference of opinion answering this question...who is the best entertainer? Who has the high energy show with all the bells & whistles?

This year, I've decided to let you help me...copy the list below & email me who you think I should vote for.

Here is the list of nominees:
Entertainer of the Year

Album of the Year
Keith Urban is a very talented singer & musician. I remember seeing him at corporate meetings, years ago in Nashville. He played guitar & banjo & really wow'd the crowd (made up of radio professionals - who are not easily impressed at 7am). He & I had a chance to spend some time together. It was a 'different' time for Keith at this point - on the path of launching a career in country music & dealing with all the pressure that comes with it.
Today, he & I look back at pictures & memories when we run into each other, 'every now & then...' I remember we attended a disco party one night. It was late & we were both doing the 'disco duck'...funny stuff!
This past weekend, Keith was enjoying the U.S. Open with his wife of six years, Nicole Kidman, or 'Nic', as he calls her.
He also recently performed in Niagra Falls. He covered a song that has been released by Miranda Lambert, "Fastest Girl In Town". Check out the video & njoy!
The first week of football season is underway in the college ranks...and already there's something making the highlight reels. It's not an amazing catch, pass, or freak play...well, I guess freak play is a good way to describe this...from the "ugh, oops" files...
Thanks to a Kent State University special teams player, they have created the first 2012 football season blunder. KSU punted the ball, the opponent touched the ball, making the ball "live", the KSU player picked up the ball and ran with it...the wrong way!
Saving grace for the team, 1) their opponents actually tried to tackle him & 2) you cannot advance a muffed punt in college ball. Watch the video & njoy!
Patches & I had a chance to see this young lady in Vegas back in April. She did an acoustic set for us at the MGM Hotel. Her name is Maggie Rose & she is fantastic. Her new song is called "I AIN'T YOUR MAMA".
I'm sure some (most) ladies can agree - you want to be there for your man, but there is a limit. Njoy the video!
We had the great fortune of having The Randy Rogers Band at the Pharr Events Center earlier this month. It was the first ever complete sell out at the PEC for Texas Music - 2,600 paid peeps (not including workers, comps, crew, band - wow)! Fantastic show and a great night.
RRB just wrapped up the shooting of their new video, ONE MORE SAD SONG . MCA Records did a "special report - behind the scenes" on the making of the video, which features all of the band members in what seems to be a unique video. Check it out - its pretty cool - Njoy!
Kristen Kelly's new song, "Ex Old Man" has a new video. It's pretty cool. We had a chance to spend some time with Kristen in Harlingen, a couple of months ago, over dinner. She is originally from Lorena, Texas, just outside of Waco. She has a very postitive attitude on life and a great voice for country music.
Check out her new video - nice!
