Both Brantley Gilbert and fiance Jana Kramer are going to be Las Vegas this weekend. That is leading to some speculation that they might be tying the knot! However, they both are saying that is not true and they are looking forward to their formal wedding later on this year.
You can listen to what Gilbert had to say about their upcoming nuptials when he joined that Wakeup Crew this week!

I have a confession: I’m addicted to Pinterest recipes. Pat and I are not huge fans of consuming red meat (or even pork-related meat for that matter), so we chicken a lot. And I mean a lot. Pre-Pinterest, we had a handful of reliable chicken recipes, but didn’t deviate too far from them. Now with Pinterest, I have what seems like unlimited new recipe options to try making with chicken. (I realize there are these things call “cookbooks” but 97% of the books I own are strictly for pasta dishes – and I’m too cheap to buy any more; however, I will gladly accept donations).
Despite our devotion to consuming chicken, there are some nights when we need a break from the endless dinners of chicken. Or at least I do – Pat could eat chicken for breakfast, lunch and dinner and it wouldn’t matter to him – I, on the other hand, need variety. I found this amazingly simple recipe for meatball subs and had to try it, especially since my better half is a strong advocate for Subway’s meatball subs.
This is seriously the simplest recipe ever – and soooo delicious. Prior to finding this recipe, Pat didn’t get Pinterest or understand why I was always lurking for new recipes. However, he now approves of Pinterest solely because of this meatball sub recipe. “This is Pat Knight, and I approve this sub.”

A few weeks ago, Carrie Underwood was in Europe putting on a few concerts. Photos from those shows are starting to pop up online and I thought I would share some of them. PLUS, it would be great support for Carrie as she is taking on Toby Keith this weekend in the final of the Wakeup Crew's "Peep Show" challenge!

During a recent vacation, Toby Keith and his daughter, Krystal, took to the slopes for some skiing. Krystal posted this picture on her Instagram account (krystalkeith) with the tag - #TheFamilyThatSkisTogetherStaysTogether

Raise your hand if you feel like there isn’t enough time in the day to get everything accomplished! Between the crazy, nearly opposite schedules of the hubs and myself, sitting down to dinner together is a daily moment I cherish. I don’t want to spend the entire night creating some fancy meal where we feel rushed to finish it because its near ‘bedtime.’ So as I lurk on Pinterest on Sunday nights while the hubs is away playing on the radio airwaves (cheap plug: check out Jelli – on Sunday nights!), I search for healthy, yet quick-cooking recipes to try.
My latest find is one I was super stoked to try: angel hair pasta with shrimp. What’s not to love?! It is extremely simple (and relatively inexpensive) to make.
The ingredient list:
15 stalks thin fresh asparagus (since asparagus isn’t in season, I substituted fresh spinach, 1-2 cups depending on how much you like spinach)
1 Tablespoon olive oil
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
6 medium plum (Roma) tomatoes, seeded & chopped
1/2 cup dry white wine
1/4 teaspoon salt
12 ounces peeled & cooked shrimp
1 Tablespoon butter
9 ounces refrigerated fresh angel hair pasta, cooked & drained
1/4 cup shredded fresh basil
freshly shredded Parmesan cheese, for topping (I didn’t have Parmesan cheese on hand, so I used shredded mozzarella)
Bonus: since you only use 1/2 cup of wine, the rest of the bottle can be served with dinner! Add some candlelight and you have yourself a romantic Tuesday night dinner. Or just do what we do: sit in sweats and enjoy each other’s company in non-dark, non-creepy light and watch Wild games!

I am a huge fan of Kip Moore and think that his latest song "Hey Pretty Girl" is one of the best tunes I have heard in a long time. I can't wait to hear him sing it live at Winstock this summer! He just released the music video for this song.

You're welcome Carrie!!!

I am a big fan of Lee Brice's current single, "I Drive Your Truck." The song just has such a powerful message in it. I was thrilled to find that he released an acoustic version of the song!
