As the youngest member to hit the airwaves on the "95 KSJ Breakfast Club", I spent my first two years at KSJ pouring coffee and running errands for the staff & occasionally making an on-air appearance or two with Dan & Shelby. Hoping that someday I'd be a part of the number ONE morning show on the Gulfcoast. In 2012 all that pouring coffee paid off, with me joining the Breakfast Club. I fell in love with broadcasting when I was only 7 years old. I said the Pledge of Allegiance with Dan & Shelby (somewhere that audio is still hanging around one of our studios). At 17, I attended a high school leaders community event, that our very own Program Director, Bill Black, was attending. I announced to Bill that I was going to work for him and 95KSJ someday... the rest is history. I'm now 20 and I firmly believe I have the best job EVER, and it keeps getting better everyday. You can catch me stirring up trouble on the 95KSJ Breakfast Club with Dan & Shelby throughout the week!
From time to time I get to side-line report from Jags football games!

Danielle Bradbery merely escaped the power that is Kellie Pickler in last week's "Keep It or Kick It Battle". This week she goes up against Sara Evans. Take a listen to both songs then VOTE!

The CMA's is just two days away and there are many artists trying to take down the powerhouse couple, Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert. Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood, Florida Georgia Line and Kacey Musgraves are trying to claw their way to the top, just to name a few. Who will win this year? Will it be the powerhouse couple that sweeps their competition, or is it time for some other artists to takeover the CMA's?
Well, anyone could win this year. Blake and Miranda have some tough competition. For Entertainer of the Year, Blake has already gotten this one under his belt. So, it might be time for him to let someone else take this one home. George Strait, maybe? What about Jason Aldean and Luke Bryan? But wait, do not forget about Taylor "Miss Sweetheart All I Want to Write and Sing About Are My Ex-Boyfriends" Swift. Everybody loves her!
For Single of the Year, "Cruise" will win for sure considering the numerous times it has been constantly played on the radio. Album of the Year has three possible artists that may steal this from their competition: Kacey Musgraves for her creativity, Taylor Swift and maybe Carrie Underwood will win it because she has blown everyone away with her album!
There's a very likely candidate for the Song of the Year and that is Kacey Musgraves for either "Mama's Broken Heart" or "Merry Go 'Round." Female Vocalist is going to be a very difficult one. Although Taylor Swift is the biggest artist in country music, Carrie Underwood, the new queen, and Miranda Lambert who we all still love, may have a good chance to win. Who will it be? Maybe voters will say Carrie. That's just my guess!
Blake Shelton has won male vocalist plenty of times. It's time for him to move on. Jason Aldean and Luke Bryan seem to be likely winners of this award. It would have to be Little Big Town for Vocal Group of the Year. They are going on a great run right now that started last year. Not even Lady Antebellum or The Band Perry seem to have a chance at this one. Come on now, Vocal Duo? Florida Georgia Line hands down. That will be theirs no doubt about it.
"Highway Don't Care" with Tim McGraw, Taylor Swift and Keith Urban will be hard to beat in the Musical Event category. For Video, somebody who I have already said will most likely get this one. And for New Artist, it should go to Kacey Musgraves, but it will go to Florida Georgia Line. Maybe? Who knows! We will definitely find out this Wednesday at 7 p.m., on ABC, hosted by Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood. You don't want to miss it!

Details unravel regarding the traffic accident early Monday morning (Oct. 28), when Jason Aldean's tour bus struck and killed Albert Kennedy in Indiana.
Police say, Albert Kennedy, 49, walked into the path of the bus in the northbound lane of US 41 North. However, Kennedy was previously arrested Oct. 8, for walking down the center lane of the same highway. He was arrested for obstructing traffic and held in the Knox County Jail on $3000 bond.
Kennedy was also arrested on Oct. 22 for stealing a bicycle. He was then charged with theft and held in the Knox County Jail on a $6500 bond.
Aldean expressed his condolences to Kennedy's family. "With a haevy heart, I am sad to say that a man passed away last night after stepping out in front of my bus in Indiana. In all the years I’ve been touring and all the miles we’ve driven, nothing prepares you for something like this to happen. I’m praying for Albert Kennedy’s family and friends today and ask that you do the same.”
