Living here in Saint Cloud since February of last year, I'm a California boy who's been Southern-raised...and have found my home here in Central Minnesota! Country music has always been a part of my life, ever since back in the day listening to Loretta Lynn 8-tracks as a lil guy in my mom's '83 Cadillac! My favorite hottest music today is by Florida Georgia Line, Blake Shelton, Sara Evans, and Little Big Town. My all time favorites include Shania Twain, Brooks & Dunn, Diamond Rio and Buck Owens. What are yours? Join me on social media below and call me up with your requests weekday afternoons at (320) 252-9897 or send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
