    So sad about Mindy McCready indeed.

    I’m very pleased that Vince Gill is making so music. I hope we get to hear it all this year.:)

    I love that Peter Cooper article.

    So sad to hear about Mindy McCready. I hope Randy Travis stays clean or he might wind up with the same fate.

    Speaking of Whitney Duncan, she announced her engagement recently to a guy she met while competing on the CBS show “Survivor”. Umm, was that here at Engine145 where that I read that?

    I’m looking forward to that Don Williams interview tonight! Go Stubbs!
