Orlando's Country

Even though I was born in Georgia, I grew up right here in Orlando. I have listened to K92.3 for as long as I can remember... I mean, moved here in 1997 so that makes over 20 years of loving this station! When I started my career off here as part of the K-Krew back in January of 2015, I fell even more in love with Country music. Now you can hear me on-air Monday- Friday 8pm to midnight and Saturday/Sunday from 4pm to 8pm. I have been married since 2015, I have two Siberian Huskies that are my entire life (yes, dog mom 100%). I love to travel, especially to places where its cooler. I am technically a UF Gator, but you will often find me rooting for the University of Kentucky in all sports.

Lauren Alaina & Fiance Call Off Engagement 

Lauren Alaina said that 2018 was one of the hardest years for her with the loss of her stepdad, and now 2019 seems to be starting off with some difficult changes as well. She posted to social media that her fans have always been so open and supportive through her life and her relationship so she felt is was only right to share with her fans that her and her fiance, Alex, were calling off their engagement. There were no details other than her post that stated, “While we still have love for each other, we have grown into very different people over the last six years. We are now in the place where we are each looking forward to starting our own fresh, new chapters of our lives. We both love and respect each other and hope you will do the same.” We hope nothing but the best for both of them.

Luke Combs Shares 10 Year Throwback Of His Mullet

Luke Combs has a great sense of humor. He loves to call people out and social media is the best place to do that, right? That way everyone can be a part of the jokes as well. Over the weekend he called out Morgan Wallen on his mullet and shared a photo from 10 years ago of his “mullet” and captioned it with “@morganwallen this was my mullet 10 years ago. Complete with racing stripes. Needless to say I was a huge @jaredallen69 fan. Was it lit or not?” LOL the picture below shows everything you need to see with Luke Combs past look... Whatta ya think?

Carly Pearce Posts Personal Messages From Fan Who Body Shames Her 

Carly Pearce has been the staple girl for confidence over the last year or two. She has come up in the country world and women have fallen in love with her love for herself and other women in the industry. She posts to social media on a daily basis showing off her athleticism with 6 mile runs and sometimes even more. Even Michael Ray jokes that he can’t run as much as Carly Pearce can. She works with Nashville country artist personal trainer Erin Oprea who also trains Carly Pearce, Kelsea Ballerini, Raelynn, Maren Morris and more. 

After all that hard work, a fan still had the nerve to message her pictures of her at a show, singing, and ask if she was pregnant. Carly then took a screen shot of the messages she was sent by this fan and post to social to show women and others that words hurt. She shared the screenshot on Instagram with a caption that said “Last night, I got off stage on a high from an amazing show in Iowa, where I headlined my second show of the weekend, hearing the entire crowd sing the words to my songs. I checked my messages as I do every night after a show because I love y'all and love to see the fun you've had at the show, and then I saw these 2 messages. Honestly I'm still in disbelief but I wanted to share this with you because I feel like this is important (especially for women) to see that WORDS ARE POWERFUL & no matter what, THINK BEFORE YOU SPEAK and BE KIND. Body Shaming & Bullying ARE NEVER OKAY.”

FINALLY! It’s been a while since Dan + Shay have come to Orlando to do a headlining show!

That has finally come to an end! They will be at Universal Orlando Resort on February 17th for the Mardi Gras Concert Series. YES! What’s better than theme park rides, Dan + Shay, and Mardi Gras... nothing! 

Other performers are Gavin Degraw, Macklemore, Sean Paul, Pitbull and more. Click HERE to see  the full line up of announced artists.

Thomas Rhett Teases Wife May Sing With Him

BIG THINGS are coming out of Nashville from our favorite artists. New music is coming our way but it may have a little twist! Thomas Rhett posted a photo of his wife in the studio in front of a mic. Could she be adding some vocals on his new music?! Thomas Rhett and Lauren are already one of the major power couples of country music. Lauren has the most followers on Instagram of all the country music spouses with a whopping 2 million follow. The internet loves them and if they do come out with a song that has BOTH their vocals on it... the world will go crazy and i’m sure it’ll be the best thing we have ever heard. 

Dan + Shay may have started a trend last year when they released Tequila and had their wives on the song with them to sing background vocals. We’ll see! Thomas Rhett didn’t include a caption with the photo which makes us believe it’s a teaser for new music with Lauren as a special guest and obviously Lauren is musically talented because Thomas Rhett also posted a video of the two of them playing the piano together (see below).

 

Lauren Alaina Shares Throwback With Emotional Message To Fans

Lauren Alaina Shares Throwback With Emotional Message To Fans

This last year has been a very rough on Lauren Alaina. She lost her stepfather not to long ago to cancer, and even before this year she had major self esteem issues that she was very open about with her fans. She overcame an eating disorder as well during that time. As the new year kicks off, she decided to take some time off of social media to reflect on her feeling and all that she has had to deal with over the last few years. She posted to Instagram to let her friends know she would be back, but we wouldn’t hear from her for a little bit. She told us this by posting a throwback photo of her in, what looks like, middle school, in a polo and a short bob haircut. She captioned it with “This Lauren didn’t care if she wore boy clothes. She preferred it actually. She didn’t know the future. It’s ups and downs. The happiness and pain it held. She didn’t know about heartbreak or loss. She didn’t know how cruel people can be or how much words can hurt, but she didn’t care what people thought of her or her boy clothes. She was happy and sure of herself. She knew she wanted to write songs and sing them. She loved fiercely and boldly. And most importantly, she knew how to smile through a mom bob. 😳 😂 I want to live everyday to be more like her. I’m looking behind every rock and corner for her this year, and I’m going to find her. I’m taking a little break from social media. I’ll be back soon. Probably not in a boy’s collared shirt, but I’ll be back more like her. Much love to all of you. Thank you for your continued support. 💕”

He and his beautiful wife, Faith Hill, celebrated the holidays and rang in 2019 there and we are officially jealous. They also shared a video on Instagram of the house... 

I mean... heaven! They spend quite a bit of time there and we can see why. Tim has done nothing but fish, dive and spend as much time as he can in the beautiful blue ocean. We don’t blame him one bit. These next two were taken by his daughter, Maggie!

Some of these look like they should go in a magazine! And this one.. well hello Tim.

Brian Kelley posted the photos to his instagram to share with his followers and fans with the caption “I’d marry you a million times @bcole429 ⚓️💯🙏🏼I love you with everything that I am, loved renewing our vows for our 5 year wedding anniversary in Big Sur, CA at the @postranchinn.

Looks like we can count on Thomas Rhett, Russell Dickerson, FGL’s Tyler Hubbard and their wives every year to be the Country Carolers. They did it for the second year in a row where they dress in old school get ups and go around town singing for the fun of it. These guys are really good friends and it’s so fun to see them doing stuff like this year round, but even more during the holidays. 

The post above was them this year... That little Christmas tree in the front of the group is Ali. She works at The Dry House Nashville, which is a hair salon that all the artists wives go to for all their beauty needs. She has become a close friend of all the artists and their wives over the years and was a part of the Country Carolers this year. 

The photo and video below is from last year when the group did this, and the video is from country artists RaeLynn’s house when they crashed her party with their singing...

Brett Young Spills The Beans On Babies

It’s been just over a month since Brett Young and his beautiful new bride became husband and wife. November 3rd is when Taylor Mills became Taylor Mills Young. It may not have been that long ago that they tied the knot but the couple has been together, on and off, for over 10 years. Knowing each other for that amount of time, they have decided that babies were something they wanted very very soon. Taylor told PEOPLE Magazine “Starting that next chapter in our lives — kids, starting our own family — and being able to experience that together is what really makes me the most excited.” 

“We do want kids soon, and that changes things,” adds Young, 37. “I’m excited to start life in general. I’m excited to say ‘husband and wife.’ Like, ‘My wife.’ You know, we’ve been together for a long time, but there’s just certain things that change.”

Not only are kids on the table for discussion but they also just bought a house together and are settling into that as we speak! “We did just buy a place, and we haven’t really settled in enough to call that home yet. We’ve both lived really good lives — this is the beginning of our life together. So that’s exciting.” A lot is going on in their lives... Brett’s music is skyrocketing, they just got married, just bought a house and now are talking about babies! It could make your head spin. “We’re excited about that stage,” Brett said. “I think we’re both ready and so I don’t think we’re going to do the thing where we’re going and testing everybody’s levels and trying to do everything we can to rush into it. I think we’re going to let it happen when it happens.”

Jana Kramer Responds To Body Shamers On Instagram

It’s been a big year for Jana Kramer. After years of trying to have another baby, she finally was blessed with a beautiful and healthy son. She had a c-section a little over a week ago and has been very open on social media with what is going on in her life regarding her son, her pregnancy, her delivery, her job, and so on. She actually even went back to work less than a week after having her son, Jace, but she works as a podcast personality and the whole family made a trip in. She posted a photo to Instagram to celebrate the moment and people started commenting about her weight. Most were saying how motivating she was to others to get into shape after a baby because she looked great... others shamed her for her body and for the fact that she was back at work so quickly. 

Kramer decided to use the social media platform to vent about her frustrations instead of directly respond to those hating on her...

Whats even bigger news, if that’s even possible, is that they are releasing a new studio album as well to celebrate their 25th anniversary! Their 6th studio album will be called Cracked Rear View. Darius Rucker, Dean Felber, Mark Bryan, and Jim Sonefeld are ready to rock on the Group Therapy Tour! Stops and dates are listed below.

“Once the four of us met and started playing shows, we toured for years before signing a record deal,” said Rucker. 

Felber notes, “Having those shows at fraternity houses, clubs and dive bars under our belt prepared us for success to a degree, and it’s something we’re proud of – that we put in the work – but what matters to me the most is that we’re still a band all these years later. We’ve never stopped being a band.”

“We were content playing clubs and small theaters, so playing to three-, four- and five-times that size was incredible, and we’re looking forward to that feeling again on this tour,” Sonefeld echoes.  

Bryan adds, “There’s nothing like playing music live. For the first time in nearly 20 years we’ll be coming back to Columbia, South Carolina where it all began,” before Rucker interjects, “and we’re ready to rock.”

Jana Kramer Announces Birth Of Rainbow Baby, Her First Son

We have been following along with Jana Kramer and her growing family. She has had some major set backs in the last few years when it comes to trying to conceive children. She has kept her personal life pretty public for her fans and followers to be able to follow along with her story of miscarriages. She has had 5 total, some before her daughter Jolie was born and some after. She has a YouTube channel where she has actually vlogged through some of the ups and downs of her finding out she was pregnant to her losing the baby. It has definitely been a major uphill battle for her but story has a silver lining. About 6 months ago Jana revealed her and her husband were pregnant with their 2nd child. A little while later the two did a gender reveal to find out she was having a boy. Now fast forward to this week, where they announced that baby Jace Joseph Caussin was born... 

We are so happy for her growing family. CONGRATS JANA!!! 

Michael Ray Opens Up About Penny Tattoo

Michael Ray Opens Up About Penny Tattoo

We all know that Michael Ray is a huge tattoo lover. He doesn’t try to hide it, and he shouldn’t. He will tell you anything you want to know about any of them and Taste of Country asked about one in particular after Michael Ray tweeted that he was getting a “new ink” while on the road...

“I brought my tattoo guy on the road with me this time,” Ray told Taste of Country, “because I never have time when I’m home.”

Michael Ray, being from Mount Dora, is a hometown boy to us. And his roots run deep in Mount Dora/Eustis Area. His family is still living there and there. We know his grandfather Amos was a huge influence on his life, music and aspirations. Taste of country asked about a penny tattoo that he had gotten with the number 1945 underneath it. 

“When my grandfather passed away, I was up late doing his obituary and the slide show for his funeral. At about 3:00 in morning, there was this typical, this-cannot-get-any-worse moment. Everything was going wrong. I said to [my grandfather], ‘You’ve got to give me a sign.’ I looked down and saw a penny on the ground. My grandmother’s nickname was Penny, and she’s had it her whole life. I picked that penny up, and now anytime anything monumental happens, I find another penny.”

He isn’t even exaggerating... he has played the Grand Ole Opry 35 times, and he told Taste of Country he has a penny from every single time. “I’ve always found them randomly before I walk onstage.”

Wonder if he found one before meeting the love of his life, Carly Pearce? 😉

Brett Eldredge Does Unique Cover Of Queen’s “Crazy Little Thing Called Love”

We have known for a while that music is a huge influence on Brett Eldredge, especially the older stuff like Frank Sinatra, Queen, Elvis and more. He released a Christmas album last year (2017) called “Glow” that is inspired by his greatest influence in music, Mr. Sinatra. Listen to one of the songs off that album below. 

Now, he is covering a classic song by the British rock band, Queen, “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” and it’s amazing. You may have seen the Christmas Peloton commercial on TV with the song playing... that’s our boy, Brett Eldredge. 

He posted to social media to promote cover but to honor the lead singer of Queen as well, Freddie Mercury, on the anniversary of his death. He captioned the photo 

“We lost Freddie Mercury 27 years ago today but his music still lives on...No one can do this song like him, but I just recorded it for a @onepeloton commercial and it’s stuck in my head...thanks for your gift Freddie”

Blake Shelton Jokes About Losing “Sexiest Man Alive” Title

It’s only been about two weeks since People Magazine named Idris Elba the next “Sexiest Man Alive.” This title was given to the one and only, Blake Shelton, last year. Being named “Sexiest Man Alive” by one of the biggest media companies in the US is a huge deal, and I think Blake Shelton is struggling with losing that title.. hahah

“Can I be honest? I feel like when I gave up my crown, sexy ended,” he joked to Entertainment Tonight. “It just ended in the world. So until I get it back, it doesn’t exist anymore.” Then he was asked about the Idris Elba and how he felt about him being the new “Sexiest Man Alive” and he responded with, "I’m sure this new guy is a nice guy. He’s a great guy. I mean, I don’t see it myself. I’m really the only person I’ve ever seen it with, but…”

Luke Bryan and Wife Have Ultimate Selfie Fail

This happens to EVERYONE. We have all had those moments where we are going to take a selfie and forget the camera is on video mode. Or we go to take a selfie and the other person doesn’t want to be serious. First world problems, right? lol These videos end up being funny, but they are even better when it happens to celebrities. See... Luke Bryan and his wife are just like us. Caroline Bryan, Luke’s wife, tried to take a selfie or two before (or after) the CMA Awards, on their car ride, and lets just say they didn’t turn out like they were intended too... BUT she posted them anyways and that is why we love her. She captioned the post with “Good grief. 🤦‍♀️ We are horrible at selfies @lukebryan but what a fun night! #cmaaward”

Luke Bryan’s Wife Falls For Turkey In Microwave Joke

This has to be one of my favorite things ever. A harmless prank has been going around in honor of Thanksgiving being next week. It’s to text your mom and ask “how long do you cook a 25 pound turkey in the microwave for” and then share her response. Here are some of the responses we got on our Facebook post...(click the comments to see).

Of course this game gets funnier and funnier when celebrities fall for it. Luke Bryan’s wife was one of those people. Her niece texted Caroline asking how long she is suppose to put a 25 pound turkey in the oven for since she was in charge of the turkey for her Friendsgiving... Caroline’s response is amazing (see blow). She posted it to social media and captioned it “I was seriously concerned about Kris for a minute! She got me. ♥️ you Stinky! No turkeys in the microwave.”

Kane Brown & Wife Already Getting Baby Questions From Fellow Country Artist

Kane Brown and his wife haven’t even been married for a month and they are already dealing with what every newlywed couple deals with... the “when are you having kids” question. Everyone deals with it, but usually that question is coming from family members like parents, grandparents, aunts, etc. You wouldn’t think your artist friend and old tour mate would be asking that but... Kane Brown and his wife have gotten that question more from Jason Aldean and Brittany Aldean than ANYONE ELSE. 

Kane Brown tells Taste of Country that Brittany “keeps asking if we're having one.”

Kane did answer the question though and told Taste of Country that they aren’t in that headspace yet. In fact, he says they probably won't be ready for quite a while. "Kaetlyn wants to wait until she's, like, 30," he says of his 26-year-old wife, and adds that he's fine with that timeline. "I'm not complaining."

Brown says he'd eventually like to have "one or two kids," but for right now, the couple's two dogs are keeping them busy.

Kane Brown’s sophomore album was released on Friday 11/9 and he will head out on his first headlining arena tour at the beginning of 2019!

Kelsea Ballerini Shuts Down Internet Troll Who Called Her Fat

Internet trolls are something celebrities have to deal with on a DAILY basis. Every time they log onto a social media platform, their social posts are getting mean comments or articles posted about them are being commented on in the worst ways. Kelsea Ballerini is dealing with it in full force when a follower commented on one of her photos and said “Lose some weight.” She responded with a FULL force rebuttal of how she is a singer, not a model” and also that she is healthy and wants to be a role model for other young girls who need to know that “skinny” isn’t always the goal.

 If you ask me, she looks phenomenal and people need to stop hiding behind a computer screen and being so mean. She captioned her photo “Not today Satan.”

Friday 11/9 she released the music video for her most recent single, “Miss Me More” where she is boxing her frustrations out about a guy who tried to control her...

The press release included quotes from the guys about the big event:

“When this group started 26 years ago – and through all the highs and lows of our career – we’ve had to learn it wasn’t about us as individuals but about what’s best for the group,” said Howie D. “That’s what I love about this album,” added Kevin Richardson. “We were able to bring all of our influences and styles into one coherent piece of work. These songs are a great representation of who we are as individuals and who we are as a group. It's our DNA. We’re really proud of that.”

“The journey is ongoing with us and there is so much left to do,” said Brian Littrell. “We’re living the next chapter that hasn’t been told yet, and that's exciting.”

 

“Vegas has been amazing and these next set of dates are going to be a party,” says Howie D. “Then it’s time for us to visit our fans all over the world.”

Tyler Farr & Other Artists React To Country Bar Shooting

Tyler Farr & Other Artists React To Country Bar Shooting

It hasn’t even been a year since the country music world, and the rest of the United States, had to witness the horrific events of the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas where 58 died and more than 450 were injured. Now, we are dealing with yet another shooting within the country music community. On Wednesday 11/7/18, 12 were killed at a country-western bar in Thousand Oaks, California called Borderline Bar & Grill. It must be a college town because that was the theme for the bar that Wednesday night, “college-country night.” The shooter was Ian Long, who was later found to be  active Marine Corp that suffered from PTSD. Long was found dead in the bar by a suspected self-inflicted wound. 

Many country artists took to social media to share their memories of performing in that bar, or their thoughts on the incident. Tyler Farr wrote “Love that bar and those people. Breaks my heart.”

John Rich of Big and Rich also posted to social to express his condolences. 

Locash did the same...

Brett Young & Wife Open Up About The Time They Were Separated

Brett Young & Wife Open Up About The Time They Were Separated

It’s very obvious that the first few song of Brett Young’s career were that of heartbreak. In Case  You Didn’t Know, Mercy, Like I Loved You, all are about a breakup and still loving the other person who is no longer your significant other. All of those songs were inspired by Taylor Mills. The couple started their relationship off in college. Their relationship started off long distance... he was in Orange City, California and she was in Arizona at college. Brett Young told People Magazine that he “About every other weekend I drove from Orange County to Arizona to see her.” They did the long distance thing until Taylor graduated and moved to California to be with him. They survived that move. They didn’t survive the next one. At least for a few years. After a 6 year relationship, they broke it off when Young moved to Nashville to pursue his career in music. But it wasn’t over yet...

Now imagine sitting in a car, listening to the radio and you hear the voice of an ex come over the radio, singing a song about your relationship. That’s what happened to Taylor. She told People, “I was driving to work. I didn’t even look down at my radio to see Brett Young and his name. I instantly heard his voice and I pulled over to the side of the road and felt like I was hyperventilating. It was really hard because it brought up a lot of emotion, but I was also so proud of him.” Now, years later, the two found their way back to each other and officially tied the knot as of November 3rd, 2018.
