Memorial Day is a time we remember those who died fighting for our country. Being a national holiday and the kick off to the summer season, you should be aware of what's open and what's closed in the Abilene area.
In between fun songs like "Swing" and "Honky Tonk Badonkadonk" there have been heart touching ones like "Then They Do" and "You're Gonna Miss This" from Trace Adkins.

Hank Williams, Jr. released a new album, 'Old School, New Rules' in July of last year. Now that the album is out he is kicking off a new tour to support that album. He just released a string of summer concert dates beginning next month.
Texas music artist Curtis Grimes stopped by KEAN today during my morning show to bring me his new single titled "Home To Me." At first I thought, I'll take his C.D. and give it a listen, and he'd be on his way. He was heading to Lubbock and Amarillo on his whirl-wind "radio tour" doing what he called "pimping my new record." When something caught my eye in the back of his car, the boy brought his guitar. Good enough for me I quickly asked if he would bring in his guitar.

For its many highs and occasional lows, The CW's 'Arrow' delivered an engaging and well-plotted season, so we're eager to see more of it this fall. Details are light on what new challenges Oliver Queen will face in year two, but did you know a major scene was cut from season 1 finale "Sacrifice" that set up two characters' paths in season 2? Find out what we missed from 'Arrow's first season finale inside!
