COMING TO KELLY'S COUNTRY!


Happy Monday, Everyone!

I know this normally a day I'd do an Out of the Chute but as you can see, things have gotten a little wonky since the beginning of the year. However, I think I'm finding a groove. Hubby has his thing and I have mine.  We are getting our granddaughters in June for about 6 weeks - 6 weeks I will NOT be working. Sorry, we've not seen the girls in almost 4 year and they're still little enough (5 and 9) to enjoy doing stuff with the old folks ;-)

But I have set up several blog posts and will continue to do so every day until June 5th. Hopefully, things will run as scheduled (I'll do my part, the rest will be up to blogger) I will check in to see everything is going smoothly.

Party list WILL run this week.
Coming up next week, Out of the Chute and Turntable Tuesday will return. I have the great new CD from Nu-Blu as well as Jimmy Fortune's latest and greatest so you'll want to come back for that.

Oh, and a sneak peak at my profile piece of Rex Allen, Jr before the magazine hits the stands. I'm really proud to have had the opportunity to connect with Rex Allen, Jr again after almost 25 years. Seems to be a magic in that number for me. I also plan to catch up with Rex on tour this year - his Sunrise to Sunset tour as he closes the touring chapter of his life.

So stay tuned. Great things are comin!

THE PARTY LIST - April 13 - 19

I apologize for no Party List this week.

While on a research trip to OK last weekend I left the power chord to my laptop at my sister-in-law's. She graciously popped the chord in the mail but I didn't have it until last night.

Party List will be up and running next week.

In the mean time, check the websites of your favorite artists to find where they'll be performing this week.

Country Blessings!

REVIEW WEDNESDAY - Cheyenne Country

video

While researching everything I could find on Rex Allen and Rex Allen, Jr. I made friends with Rex, Jr's media rep, Jennifer Herron. She has also introduced me to Cheyanne TV out of Nashville as well as western artist, Rich Price. They co-host the show. 

Today, I thought I'd share Cheyenne TV with you. Next week I'm running a double play on Rich Price, beginning with an Out of the Chute interview on Monday and a Turntable Tuesday review of his new CD

Cheyenne TV has the grass roots base similar to Country Family Reunion. The show is a compilation dream of Western Music aficionado Harrison Tyner and the Southern Gospel passion of Bill Traylor. These two brought their loves together in a cohesive project that embodies the cowboy life... songs that tell stories and Faith. 

Cheyenne TV showcases great musical artists singing songs with a family oriented or spiritual core. Artists like Lee Brice (I Drive Your Truck), The Roys and Baxter Black.

"Though still based on Christian Faith, the show now offers Patriotic and Country Music with Inspirational Lyrics and Messages for the whole family."  ~ Cheyanne Country website

Check out the Cheyenne TV website for a list of stations carrying the program. Not available in your area, please call your local cable provider and ask them to do so. Let's all do our part to put quality television in our homes.

Country Blessings!

THE PARTY LIST UPDATE


First off, I want to apologize for not having The Party List up last week as planned. With Bob home, I'm having to focus on the 'paying' gigs and everything else gets done as my time is available. 

I want you to understand something. Bob does not dictate what I can and can not do when he's home. I AM THE ONE who does that. Time with the people we love is too precious. He is gone so much of the time, that when he's home I want to spend as much of that time with him as possible. I do the things that I have to do for the job that makes me money and the other items fall into place when I'm able to work on them.  

The last time Bob was out, he was gone for 35 days - a time span that included him being gone for Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years. We are used to this. He's been working on the river for almost 40 years. So yeah, when he's home he comes first.

He has been home for almost two weeks and will probably be home until early March. So I'm not seeing The Party List back in action until March 2nd. Possibly even the 9th. 

To inhibit progress even more, Bob spent all of last week with a serious headcold. Guess who woke up with it this morning. So, any work I get done for the next week is going to be nothing short of a miracle.

So while I'm off, feel free to check back to older posts and visit the tour schedules of your favorite artists. Support live music and the artists who create it.

Country Blessings!
Kelly

SUPER SATURDAY - Bonus! - Country Family Reunion

I'm a big fan of Country Family Reunion and what the program stands for. Bill Anderson and Larry Black spearhead this phenomenal gathering of true artists in country music.

I've interviewed Bill Anderson on several occasions and spent time with Larry Black - even being mistaken for his daughter. (An honor I would accept with pride - but NO, we are not related)

So when this Country Family Reunion Special Offer came through my email, I wanted to share it with you guys on this new segment of Kelly'sCountry. However, we are on a time crunch with Valentine's Day (the PFI post yesterday) and the deadline for this offer from Country Family Reunion.  The offer below expires on February 9th!

Country's Family Reunion Ultimate Collection - Product details
Courtesy of Country Family Reunion

For a limited time only - you can purchase this collection for
$99.80 - a Savings of $20!

If you love Country Music as much as I do, then you will want this collection in your own video library to watch whenever you want.

 to be taken to the Country Family Reunion website where you'll get the full scoop.

Country Blessings!

SATURDAY SPECIAL! - PFI Saturday


Last fall I had the honor of interviewing Randy, Paul and Collin... three core members of the BootDaddy family. Family is the keyword. Everyone works together as a family to make their company the best in the Western world. And they treat their customers like family from the moment you walk in the door.

PFI Western has been in business for over 40 years... literally starting with No Money!

You can check out the full story in this video:


In the next few weeks I'll be bringing you some of the interview as I prep the full version for publication in a future issue of Saddlebag Dispatches magazine. 

I will also be networking with PFI over the coming months to help promote some of the fantastic events they coordinate every year. One such event is a major change to their annual Party In The Parking Lot. The event has become so well received over the years that it has outgrown the PFI parking lot! So this year they are offering the same AWESOME experience at a much larger venue. Stay tuned here and on our Twitter accounts... @kellyscountry and @https://twitter.com/PFI_western and on their FB account.

To return the generosity of the folks at PFI, I will be showcasing some of their upcoming specials on top quality product.

I hope you will visit them at PFI - Springfield MO. Plan several hours to take everything in. If you can't visit, then hope over to the WEBSITE for the ultimate in on-line shopping experience for all your Western Wear needs & gifts. 

Please, tell them you heard about them on KellysCountry

Country Blessings!
Kelly
