    2014 looks like it will be a big year for the ‘Paranormal Activity‘ franchise, with a fifth film hitting around Halloween and the intriguing spinoff, ‘Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones,’ arriving in a week.

    “The Biggest New Years Eve Party in West Texas” at the Lucky Mule

    The Biggest New Years Eve Party

    Everybody I know is talking about where to go for their New Years eve party. I just mentioned to my brother-in-law that I was going to be broadcasting live at “The Biggest New Years Eve Party in West Texas” at the Lucky Mule, he started making plans to join me. When I told him “the Lucky Mule is even doing a balloon drop with cash and prizes and a champagne toast at midnight” he asked “can I ride with you?” Guess who’s the designated driver now?

    Joel Crouse’s New Song “Why God Made Love Songs”

    Is it just me, or are there more country love songs being released now days? I can expect it from the superstars like Blake Shelton who stays a few months ahead of the seasons and/or holidays. Now add country newcomer Joel Crouse to those savvy enough to know when to release a new song like “Why God Made Love Songs.” With Valentines day just around the corner I honestly believe this song will be big for Joel. It’s only been out a couple weeks and it’s already heating up the airwaves.
