I have often classified/self-diagnosed myself with AD/HD, which sometimes works to my advantage, and sometimes it doesn’t. Multi-tasking is a breeze but completing the task at hand is something I truly struggle with. In the “Texas Music” scene, I often run across musicians who suffer from or self-diagnose or have actually been to a doctor and diagnosed with AD/HD or some other form of attention disorder. Having a conversation with someone else who’s mind struggles to not blurt out “Chocolate” in the middle of a sentence talking about bicycles and clouds, is 1. hilarious and 2. exhausting. Kimberly Dunn is one of those people who’s personality and wit led us directly into that tailspin of an interview in which nobody really knows how we got there or where its headed.
Here is a clip of her in studios recently performing “When Did We Stop”. And don’t forget to check out her website here.

June 20, 2012 (Nashville, TN) – Exclusively announced yesterday by Billboard, Texas country singer/songwriter Granger Smith unveiled his hilariously unrefined alter ego, Earl Dibbles Jr., with the new single, “The Country Boy Song.” The song debuted on iTunes as New & Noteworthy. The release was spawned from the impressive viral success of the “Earl Dibbles Jr.” YouTube video, a comical offering on the character’s country lifestyle, which has generated over 415,000 views. Watch that video HERE. An official music video for “The Country Boy Song” complements the single release which can be seen HERE. Smith intends to launch Dibbles with a multi-platform campaign, which includes radio, publicity, marketing and digital.
“We started doing Dibbles just for fun, but we realized quickly it really resonated with our fans,” Granger said. “Pretty soon they were urging me to create more and more Dibbles content and we’re excited to see how they react to the song and music video.”
Smith, consistently a country music favorite in and around the Texas/Red Dirt music scene, has been busy honing more than just his craft of music, as he’s created an entire empire surrounding the Earl Dibbles Jr. character that has already garnered a legion of fans. Dibbles tweets regularly to engage over 5,300 followers, which he’s accumulated in just a few short months.
“Wake up. Put a good dip in. Crack a cold one. And start the day.” This is how Earl Dibbles Jr. begins each and every one of his days. Why? It’s simple: because he’s a country boy. And, according to Dibbles, you are, too.
“Everyone has some country boy in ‘em,” Dibbles explains. “Now I gotta go do some explorin’ in the woods. Sit on some logs. Maybe climb the windmill. Shoot the gun. And then put a good dip in.”

In the Texas Music Scene, Number one’s are often associated with names like Randy Rogers, Wade Bowen and Roger Creager. As a matter of fact only once has a female ever reached number one since the inception of the Texas Music Chart. Are those odd’s too much? Las Cruces NM, native and Texas Musician Bri Bagwell doens’t seem to think so. “Whiskey” is the title of her latest offering, a simple song about a girl who longs to be the “Whiskey” in her man’s life.
I first met Bri nearly a year ago during her first radio tour promoting her then single ” Banned From Santa Fe”, which quickly became one of the most requested songs we’ve ever played. Now, with a much more refined ability on the guitar, Bagwell raises the bar for any female interested in giving her hand at music in the Lone Star State.

I spent some time up stairs here at the station this afternoon and ran across box after box of vinyl records. Everything from Michael Jackson’s Thriller album to Neil Diamond, Seals & Crofts, and even Chicago. Just seeing the history reminded me of how music influenced my life from a very early age. Listening to that same thriller album on a PlaySkool tape player equipped with only play, stop, and forward….(evidently “reverse” was an option, much like power windows) for hours on end swinging on a rickety metal swing set in my backyard.
On occasion a certain artist or group will come through the studios, that if just for a moment, takes me back to that time in life. When bills didn’t exist and my only worry was school and what time it would be over. Shooter Jennings recently stopped in studios and for about 20 minutes, took me back to that time.
Practiacally born on his father’s tour bus, Jennings’ musical career began at an early age of 5 playing drums and them piano at age 8 and by 14 was backing his father. As an adult, Jennings left Nashville, Tennessee to seek his fortunes in Los Angeles. He assembled and performed with Stargunn, a southern rock band who, through three distinct phases, sounded like a hybrid of Lynyrd Skynyrd, David Bowie, Guns n’ Roses and The Screamin’ Cheetah Wheelies. Stargunn performed at local clubs for six years, built an avid following, and earned praise from the local music press.
Jennings portrayed his father in the Johnny Cash biopic Walk the Line. He is the host of Shooter Jennings’ Electric Rodeo, a two-hour weekly music show on Sirius Satellite Radio‘s Outlaw Country channel. His second solo album Electric Rodeo was released on April 4, 2006, followed by The Wolf on October 23, 2007. This album was followed in 2009 by his first compilation album, Bad Magick: The Best of Shooter Jennings and the .357′s.
In 2011, following a move to New York, Shooter, with childhood friend and master pianist Erik Deutsch, formed “The Triple Crown”, a new backing band for his forthcoming country album. The album Family Man, his first self-produced outing, was released March 13, 2012.
