Morgan Wallen’s First Missouri Buck, Rifle Camp At It’s Best

This year, two special guests joined the MAD crew for their first trip to the northern Missouri woods. Morgan Wallen and his cousin Jared Mullins with tags in their pocket were ready for their deer hunting trip.

To say the least they were successful in their hunt. God bless deer season.

Blake Shelton Thinks Neal McCoy Should Replace Him On “The Voice” And We Agree

Blake Shelton announced that he’s finally leaving “The Voice” a while back. He’s been a part of that show since it began and he’s helped make that show the success it is.

With him leaving…it will definitely cause a big red chair that needs to filled. Blake Shelton and Neal McCoy have been close friends for years now. So, it’s no surprise to that Blake is suggesting that Neal should be his replacement on “The Voice” when he’s done.

Blake Tweeted this and I couldn’t agree more.

This needs to happen. Neal McCoy is one of the funniest and nicest human beings in country music. Hell Blake probably owes Neal all of the credit for being the entertainer he is today. Hopefully “The Voice” saw that Tweet and takes action. Let Neal fill that chair!

King George And His Wife Norma Strait Celebrated Their 51st Anniversary

I don’t think there’s a better country music couple than George and his wife Norma. They celebrated their 51st anniversary over the weekend.

George eloped with his high school sweetheart, Norma Voss. The couple initially married in Mexico on December 4, 1971. That same year, he enlisted in the US ARMY as an infantryman. While stationed at Schofield Barracks in Hawaii as a part of the 25th Infantry Division, George began performing with an Army-sponsored band, “Rambling Country”, which also played off-base under the name “Santee”. On October 6, 1972, while still in Hawaii, George and Norma had their first child, Jenifer. Strait served in the United States Army from 1971 to 1975 and ultimately attained the rank of Corporal.

George Strait is the undeniable “King of Country Music.” His music career spans more than 30 years. Includes 60 #1 singles, more than any other artist in any genre and George boasts 33 platinum or multi-platinum-selling albums, more than any country artist and third across all genres behind only The Beatles and Elvis Presley. 

Strait is the only act in history to have a Top 10 hit every year for over three decades and has sold more than 70 million albums and earned more than 60 major entertainment industry awards.

Strait, whose name has become synonymous with “real country” since his 1981 debut, was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2006. Right where he belongs. It’s why we call him King George.

His wife just calls him George though. Congrats to the Strait’s on showing people what a marriage is supposed to look like. It’s about staying together for the long haul.

Scotty McCreery Covered A Elvis Classic “Santa Claus Is Back in Town”

Scotty McCreery used to get compared to Josh Turner quite a bit early in his career. He can also sound a lot like Elvis. 

Scotty was recently a part of the “CMT Campfire Sessions” and he was in the Christmas spirit. Here’s the clip of him singing a cover of  “Santa Claus Is Back In Town”. It’s from his “CMT Campfire Sessions”.

If Randy Owen Of Alabama Puts A Microphone In Your Face…Just Sing

If you ever find yourself at a Alabama concert and Randy Owen sticks a microphone in your face. Just sing your ass off.

This guy was definitely ready and busted out with “Mountain Music” and obviously Alabama knew the song.
The audience knew it too…because it’s one the best songs ever released from Alabama.

This guys also sounded pretty good too. So, that was a plus.

A Screaming Man Chased A Bear Down His Driveway

This guy proves the theory that you can scare away a bear if you shout while running at it. Of course we aren’t suggesting that you try this, but the video speaks for itself.

This bear was in this mans driveaway, and it wanted no part of the wild, screaming, running man. Luckily for the man the bear didn’t try to fight back.

If You’re A Native Of Texas…It’s Normal To See George Strait On A Horse

Growing up in south Texas it was normal seeing George Strait on a horse at rodeo or roping event. I didn’t see King George actually play in concert until I was in my 30s, but seeing him on a horse was an almost like a normal weekend thing.

Guess that’s why Texans think of George as a real cowboy (cause he is) and we’re a little spoiled like that seeing him just being George.

I’m also thankful to be living on earth the same time as George Strait is living…and living well.

Keith Urban And Tyler Hubbard Covered A Tim McGraw Song

Keith Urban took Tyler Hubbard on his recent tour as an opener. It also kind of weird seeing Tyler on stage without Brian Kelley. That’s a different story though.

The best part about this tour is that Keith and Tyler covered some 90s Country Music together. That’s the part I’m here for.
