New Movie ’50 To 1′ About Longshot Kentucky Derby Winner To Premiere This Weekend – Interview With Jim Wilson And Christian Kane [LISTEN]

Being as close to Louisville as we are in the Tri-State, the Kentucky Derby is something many of us take time to catch each first Saturday in May.  I grew up in Louisville, so I always make plans to at least watch the race.  In 2009, a major long shot, Mine That Bird took the garland of roses, and that underdog story has prompted a new film, '50 to 1' produced by Oscar winner, Jim Wilson.  I had a chance to talk to Wilson and one of the stars of the movie, Christian Kane.

Fake News Story Reports 17 Bodies Found in Ohio River Near Henderson, Kentucky

As I was chatting with one of my freelancer writers (and cruising around Facebook at the same time), I ran across a post that someone had shared entitled 17 Bodies Found in Ohio River Near Henderson Kentucky. Naturally, my interest was piqued and my job requires that I investigate anything as significant as this title suggested. Not only that, but if I'm living next to a serial killer, I like being aware of these things.

This morning was no different. The phone lit up, we answered it and it was Jeromy Pruitt from the History Channel's, 'Swamp People.'

Artist Spotlight: John King

Artist Spotlight: Chase Rice

Chase Rice hasn’t exactly had a boring life, to say the least. He’s gone from playing college football, pro bound, to a NASCAR pit crew, to a season of Survivor, to co-writing one of the BIGGEST country songs in history and finally to focusing on himself as an artist all in an extremely short amount of time. Go big or go home? Guess so! Some people can’t even dream of having accomplished one adventure, let alone five!
