Happy Birthday George! This #1 is for YOU!
George Strait had plenty to celebrate this weekend! He turned another year older and earned his 60th career #1 with "Give it All We Got Tonight"!!
You knew about the big "60 for 60" campaign. There were signs, you heard us talking about it on the BIG 98! It all started around Valentine's Day when some of his FANS...yes FANS...that means YOU...were looking for the perfect GIFT and thought this would be something even BETTER than money could buy! So, the “Sixty for Sixty” campaign was born. It snoballed, picking up support from George's record label and some of the industries BIGGEST George Strait fans like Brad Paisley, Carrie Underwood, Tim McGraw, Luke Bryan, Little Big Town, Darius Rucker, Josh Turner and Scotty McCreery!
Well, we did it!! Pat yourself on the back and know that you gave George Strait a Birthday that he'll never forget.
Pen Jillette Magically Disappears:Trace Adkins is your new Celebrity Apprentice!
Five years after Trace Adkins finished as runner-up on “Celebrity Apprentice,” he walked away with the title of All-Star Celebrity Apprentice on Sunday night during the finale of Donald Trump’s reality TV competition on NBC.
The Oak Ridge Boys, Thompson Square, Billy Ray Cyrus and Wynonna Judd all made the trip to the Big Apple to donate money to Adkins during the series’ last challenge. In addition, race car driver Tony Stewart made a donation, as did NFL player Tim Tebow, who was running late and nearly missed the chance to turn in a HUGE check.
With the win, Adkins raised more than $1.5 million for the American Red Cross.
Taylor Swift's Magic Number was 8!!!
Taylor left with 8 out of 11 Billboard awards that she was nominated for!! It was a magical night!! She performed "22" — starting backstage and working her way to the main stage on the back of a bike with help from a dozen background dancers and a flurry of red balloons.
She should sleep with one of those awards under her pillow in case some creepy dude tries swimming up to her house again!! She could just whack him over the head with it and that should take care of him til the police arrive. Just sayin'
Taylor told the crowd, "You are the longest and best relationship I ever had." We're not going anywhere, right?
Congratulations to our friend, Taylor!
