Here’s what’s happening on this weeks Lone Star Outdoors Show!

No Comments

We discuss the mountain men and early hunters of the 1700 and 1800s with hall of fame outdoor writer J Wayne Fears. It’s a wonder they survived without the fancy high tech gear and advanced weapons that today’s hunters enjoy.

Then we talk all things axis deer with Eze Axis Deer Call creator and long time guide Eric Harrison. Texas is spoiled for riches when it comes to these beautiful and tasty deer that inhabit much of the Hill Country.

Join us Saturday Morning at 8, on Texas Thunder Radio!

A "jelly" Luke Bryan thinks everyone should ease up on Sexiest Man Alive Blake Shelton

No Comments

By Music News Group

ABC/Image Group LAWhen Luke Bryan first learned that People had chosen Blake Shelton as its Sexiest Man Alive for 2017, he reacted much like Blake might’ve done if the situation had been reversed: by giving him grief.

But now that so many people have piled on to criticize the magazine’s choice, Luke is changing his tune.

“I originally roasted him about it,” Luke told Entertainment Tonight. “But then now the whole world is roasting him and now I feel bad for roasting him.”

“It’s very flattering and I’m happy for him,” the “Light It Up” hitmaker goes on. “I want to go on the record and say that I’m proud of my guy. And for all of the people out there that are giving him grief, I mean, Blake is a good-looking guy and he deserves it.”

The two-time CMA Entertainer of the Year even admits he wouldn’t mind seeing his own face on the cover of People‘s Sexiest Man Alive issue one day.

“I’m a little jelly,” Luke confessed,”[But] I think he ought to enjoy [it].”

Watch now: Dolly Parton debuts as a cartoon

No Comments

By Music News Group

Dolly Records/RCA NashvilleThrough the years, Dolly Parton has often joked that her exaggerated looks and big hair make her seem like a cartoon — and now that’s become a reality: Dolly’s animated alter-ego, Little Dolly, makes her debut in a new series of lyric videos on YouTube.

The thirteen clips go along with the tracks on Dolly’s first children’s album, I Believe in You. The new musical cartoons find Little Dolly exploring well-known places in the Volunteer State, as the on-screen lyrics aim to help kids learn to read.

All the proceeds from I Believe in You go to help Dolly’s literacy non-profit, The Imagination Library. The Tennessee Department of Tourism helped produce the new videos.

You can check out the new treatments for everything from the title track to Dolly’s classic, “Coat of Many Colors,” on YouTube now.

Jon Pardi insists "She Ain't In It," while teasing a top-secret collaboration with Miranda Lambert

No Comments

ABC/Image Group LAHas Jon Pardi recorded a top-secret duet with Miranda Lambert? That seems to be the case, judging from Jon’s cryptic comments in a new interview with Entertainment Tonight.

Next year, the two head out together on Miranda’s Livin’ Like Hippies Tour, and not long ago, they bumped into each other while they were traveling.

“I was sitting at the airport bar — because what else do you do in the airport? — [when] somebody tapped me on the shoulder,” Jon recalls. “[I] turned around and it was Miranda. She was like, ‘Hey, I saw you at the bar, you’re over here by yourself. I just wanted to say hey.’ I was like, ‘That’s so awesome!’”

The two went on to discuss “some other top secret information that might come about in the third record, maybe,” Jon teases, stopping short of saying the two have done a duet.

“That’s still not official…” he adds, before bragging, “It sounds awesome!”

Jon is currently working on his follow-up to his current album, California Sunrise, as its fourth single, “She Ain’t In It,” climbs the chart. The disc’s three previous singles have all gone to #1.
