I live in Canal Fulton near Lock 4 and a sure sign that Spring is here is the sound of those little singing frogs that we call "Spring Peepers" (at least thats what they're called in our house). Sunday evening as I threw a hunk of meat on the side burner of my grill to sear, I noticed this little creature climbing out of one of the vent slats near the burner... Luckily the main grill wasn't on. While maybe a little warmer than it wanted to be, the little guy/gal did escape unscathed and then decided to hole up between these old weights I used to hold down a tarp. (Also it may be a toad and not a frog, I'm no expert on amphibians but thanks for reading! --Ike)
Jake Owen has released his third single from his recently released sixth studio album Greetings From... Jake! "Homemade" is a little bit of a departure from his usual beach vibes to paint a picture of times that were a little simpler, back when things were, well, homemade. What do you think about this new one? We can't wait to hear him perform it live at the Medina County Fair on Wednesday, July 31st!
And we are saying CONGRATULATIONS once again to Jake and his girlfriend Erica who welcomed daughter Paris Hartley Owen on Monday (April 29th) joining big sister Pearl!
Happy Cinco de Mayo to one and all!

I have heard a ton of songs over the years and lived through the ebb and flow of Country Music many times over. I do get asked a lot, "Who are your favorites in Country?" Truth is, I have a tendency to be a bigger fan of songs as opposed to artists.
Of course some artists resonate more with me than others, but songs are where I live mostly. I gravitate to songs that talk to you directly. I like songs that celebrate the lifestyle of the listener as well. And as Country fans, we have about as wide of a range of interests as anyone. Our music is the only one that sounds as good in a Mercedes as it does in an old F-150.
Here are few of my favorites recently. (No Order)
Down At The Honkytonk - Jake Owen
Up Down - Morgan Wallen
When It Rains It Pours - Luke Combs
Hotel Key - Old Dominion
On My Way To You - Cody Johnson
Why? As a format we have stretches where we can take ourselves too seriously sometimes. There's nothing wrong with a "lovey-dovey" song, or some kind of "You're too good to be true" song. Or "If I was yours song, I'd be great to you" song. And we certainly have no shortage of those. But when we are the best, in my opinion, is when we have an great balance of that and what is listed above. Music that represents our fun, our funny side, or our more than honest side. Our music, like our fans is as versatile as any kind of music. When we celebrate our versatility, we are the best we can be.
When we are too heavy, too serious, too dark, too pop we are much like the rest of the music scene. Country peeps are true and fun, and like to be reminded of such.
What are yours? (Let me know)
Peter Mayhew, the original Chewbacca from Star Wars passed away yesterday. He was 74.
Chewbacca is one the most recognized characters ever, and one of my favorites. The voice, the scream, the growl. Like so many, I grew up watching and loving the Star Wars movies. Chewy you're home now. RIP Peter Mayhew, and thank you!
Here's a short video of #ScottAndSarah in the Morning paying tribute to Chewbacca:
