Tom Travis....If you've ever heard Bob Kingsley on American Country Countdown, it's not me! I've been playing radio since 1983 and it's always been country music I've played. I've worked in Little Rock, Fayetteville and Ft. Smith Arkansas, Oklahoma City and a rumored short career in Jamaica (I don't remember much about it). I'm a married father of 5 ranging from 23 years to 6 months (3 girls and 2 boy). I Love God, Country and Country Music! You'll find me parked in front of anything sports and / or the Military Channel.
Jon Pardi admits he’s not thrilled with his holiday plans.
The country singer explains that he’s having knee surgery, so he’ll be spending Christmas at his home in Nashville recovering instead of celebrating with his family in California. But Jon says he’ll do what he can to keep things festive.
Pardi says he’s never missed a family Christmas before, and his mom in particular is “super sad” that they won’t be celebrating the holiday together.
And the celebrations will continue for Jon after the first of the year. He’ll be releasing his debut album, Write You a Song, on January 14th. The album features his hit singles “Up All Night” and “Missin’ You Crazy.”

Hard to complain about the combination of a bunch of supermodels and Taylor Swift (who, let’s face it, is basically a supermodel).
In promotion of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show next Tuesday (Dec. 10), CBS is airing a commercial of the Angels lip syncing to Taylor Swift’s epic “I Knew You Were Trouble.” It’s heavenly.
Will you watch these angels get their wings?
Florida Georgia Line's Tyler Hubbard say 2013 has been "so crazy and awesome" for the duo that it's hard to pinpoint any one thing as a big accomplishment for the year. But he and Brian Kelley can point to a number of highlights.
Tyler tells "CMT Top 20 Countdown" working with Nelly was "a big thing" for them. Their collaborative remix of "Cruise" sent the 2012 hit back to the top of the charts for several weeks. Hubbard adds that collaborating with the rapper was "definitely a huge honor and really cool and a great experience."
And Kelley says another collaboration was very meaningful to them. He says "being on the 'Alabama and Friends' tribute album was huge." Brian explains that they're "huge Alabama fans," so he's "very proud" that he was a part of that.
Florida Georgia Line is among this year's CMT Artists of the Year. The duo will celebrate that accomplishment on the "CMT Artists of the Year" special, airing live on CMT on Tuesday.
