Bobby Bones To Host New USA Network Series ‘Snake In The Grass’

Radio and television personality BOBBY BONES has a new show in the works for USA NETWORK. Billed as an “action-packed social experiment,” the show is titled “Snake In The Grass.” BONES will host the program in which, DEADLINE reports, “four strangers … are dropped into the wild with a chance to win $100,000. In order to win, the team must figure out which one of them is the Snake – a saboteur who is secretly undermining the group every step of the way.” BONES’s previous television credits include one season of “Breaking BOBBY BONES” for NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC, several seasons as a mentor on ABC’s “American Idol” (2019-2021), a season on ABC’s Dancing With The Stars,” and his role as host and Executive Producer of CIRCLE network’s weekly “Opry” show Read More

Watch Now: Fancy Hagood Nods To Nostalgia In Animated Video For “Bored”

Queer/pop country enigma Fancy Hagood (the artist formerly known as Who Is Fancy) releases the nostalgia-driven, whimsical video for his latest tune, “Bored.” Giving fans a colorful sneak peek into Fancy’s millennial mind, the clip takes fans on an animated trip to the trailblazing artist’s childhood. With animation akin to some of the biggest shows of the late 1990s/early 2000s, from MTV’s Daria to Beavis and Butthead, the video finds a young, cartoon version of Fancy in his bedroom, processing the world around him and nodding to the pop-culture staples that defined his upbringing – from the Spice Girls and Destiny’s Child to Tamagotchis, Miss Cleo, and Brittney Spears, whose story actually inspired second verse of the thought-provoking tune. “I used to love cartoons in the ’90s, so I wanted a Beavis and Butthead-inspired cartoon for this particular video,” Fancy explains. “This video is all about consumption and getting lost in a world where the media is just trying to sell us anything and everything… And by the way, this is just the beginning of my animated self’s journey. Stay tuned to find out what happens after my ‘gaylien’ abduction!” With the video amplifying this sentiment, “Bored” tackles the topic of perception versus reality in today’s society and serves as a commentary on the glamorized way we view the world, the image we create for ourselves and how we often hide the struggles and truth beneath. Co-written with and produced by Alysa Vanderheym (Lady A, Florida Georgia Line, One Republic, Blake Shelton), “Bored” is Inspired in part by Fancy’s own demons and serves as a cautionary tale to remain honest with yourself. Earlier this year, Fancy took on a new gig as a radio host, launching his new Apple Music Country Radio show, Trailblazers Radio, which airs by-weekly on Wednesdays… Read More

Listen Now: Meghan Patrick “My Left Hand”

On May 20, Riser House Records and Warner Canada artist Meghan Patrick will tap into her softer side and celebrate her upcoming nuptials with the release of “My Left Hand.” Available today (5.6) for fans to pre-save here, the tune became a viral moment for the back-to-back CCMA Female Artist of the Year when she first previewed it on TikTok this past December — garnering more than 4.4 Million views and quickly becoming the soundtrack to hundreds of fan-created videos about their own journeys to forever.  Written by Patrick alongside Heather Morgan and Thomas Salter, the thoughtful track serves as an ode to Patrick’s own love story with fellow country hitmaker and fiancé, Mitchell Tenpenny — spotlighting her rarely-seen vulnerable side, while also remaining true to Patrick’s rough and rowdy, rebel roots through unexpected lyrical twists that wouldn’t normally find their way into a wedding tune. “‘My Left Hand’ has really taken on a life of its own, and it all started on TikTok” Patrick explains. “Most of my fans are in the same phase of life that I’m in, getting engaged and settling down, so it really resonated with them from the very beginning — not to mention, after so many weddings were postponed during the height of the pandemic, this song became extra special for those couples who are finally getting the chance to walk down the aisle this year, myself included.” Announcing her engagement this past November, the 18x CMAOntario Award-winner has been busy planning her upcoming trip down the aisle, which is set to take place later this year, and she’s looking forward to turning the page on a new chapter — not only in her love life, but also in her music. “What I’m most excited for with this release is the chance to show my… Read More

Blake Shelton And Carson Daly Team Up To Launch New Celebrity Game Show “Barmageddon”

Longtime staples of NBC’s THE VOICE, BLAKE SHELTON and CARSON DALY have teamed up to create a new celebrity game show for USA NETWORK called BARMAGEDDON. The two stars will executive produce the show, to be hosted by WWE HALL OF FAME member NIKKI BELLA. The show will be shot in the downtown NASHVILLE location of SHELTON’s bar chain, OLE RED, according to USA NETWORK, which says the show will “welcome a rowdy crowd for live music sing-alongs and well-loved bar games — with a twist! With DALY behind the bar and SHELTON on stage, BELLA will keep the competition fierce and set the stakes as celebrity friends go head-to-head in games such as Air Cannon Cornhole, Keg Curling, Drunken Axe Hole, Sharts (‘SHELTON Darts), and many more.” Said SHELTON in a press release, “NASHVILLE is known for great music and hospitality, which makes it the perfect setting. I’m excited about BARMAGEDDN and can’t wait for friends, old and new, to join my buddy CARSON and me for some drinks, music, and high-spirited fun at OLE RED.” Added DALY, “BLAKE, [co Executive Producer] LEE [METZGER] and I wanted to create a show where the audience can feel like they’re hanging out with us at OLE RED in NASHVILLE, having a drink and cheering on friends as they compete in the ultimate test of athleticism and endurance — bar games!” USA NETWORK reports that “each episode will see two celebrities play a unique set of five games in the bar … Besties SHELTON and DALY will provide some much-needed words of wisdom — with the occasional good-natured heckling thrown in, of course — to keep the crowd rowdy and the party going.” No word on when the show is set to debut.

Fellow Country Stars Remember Mickey Gilley

One week after the passing of NAOMI JUDD (NET NEWS 5/2), the Country music industry was rocked by the loss of another prominent figure when singer and actor MICKEY GILLEY died in BRANSON, MO on SATURDAY, MAY 7th at the age of 86 (NET NEWS 5/7). No cause of death was shared. GILLEY had just finished performing 10 shows in APRIL, but had posted a message to fans on social media on MAY 1st apologizing for cancelling all MAY dates at his theater in BRANSON, saying, “The last couple weeks, my energy level and some health issues have kept me from being 100% at my shows. So, I’ve been seeking doctors to get me back on track.” He also wrote, “I hope to be reenergized, healthy and back in full swing to see you at our shows soon.” GILLEY charted 46 singles between 1968 and 1989, with his career taking off in earnest in 1974 when he scored the first of what was to become 17 #1 singles, “Room Full Of Roses.” In addition to his chart-toppers, he notched 17 more Top 10 hits in his career. He dominated the ACADEMY OF COUNTRY MUSIC AWARDs in 1976, winning for both Male Vocalist and Entertainer of the Year, as well as Album of the Year (“Gilley’s Smoking” on PLAYBOY RECORDS) Single of the Year (“Bring It On Home”) and Song of the Year (“Don’t The Girls All Get Prettier At Closing Time”). GILLEY opened the massive GILLEY’S nightclub in PASADENA, TX in 1971 (later a chain), and appeared as himself in the 1980 film “Urban Cowboy,” which was partially shot there. That helped launch an acting career that included roles on such television series as “Murder, She Wrote,” “Fantasy Island,” “The Fall Guy” and “Dukes Of Hazzard.” He was inducted into… Read More

Angry Sammy Hagar Clone Threatens To “Beat His Neighbor’s D*ck” – Immediately Laughs At Himself After Saying It

This is one of the funniest, almost light-hearted, road rage-induced, verbal threats I’ve ever had the pleasure of watching. It’s from a few years back, but it’s making the rounds on Reddit again so I just couldn’t go without sharing it. There isn’t really isn’t too much backstory here but from my critical analysis of the context clues (and a word from the driver) it sounds like our 45-year-old Sammy Hagar clone with some rage issues was standing somewhere in […] The post Angry Sammy Hagar Clone Threatens To “Beat His Neighbor’s D*ck” – Immediately Laughs At Himself After Saying It first appeared on Whiskey Riff.

Chris Stapleton rocked our worlds with his 2020 album, Starting Over. The album gave us all a perspective on life, as Stapleton delivered a number of songs about self reflection, sharing a sense of relatability to all listeners. And of course, since his debut in 2015, he’s arguably been the biggest thing in country music… and music in general. We’ve seen the legendary singer/songwriter release a few collab songs over the past year with Santana, Tom Morello, and Kelly Clarkson, along […] The post Hear Chris Stapleton’s Extremely Rare, Unreleased Version Of “I Didn’t Know At The Time” first appeared on Whiskey Riff.

Waylon Jennings in his prime… you simply can’t beat it. And back on February 1st, 1975, he appeared on Pop! Goes the Country to sing his hit “Rainy Day Woman.” It was a weekly half-hour, syndicated variety country music television series that aired in from the mid-’70s to the early ’80s, and featured performances, comedy sketches and interviews from both established and well-known artists, to smaller, up-and-coming singers. The show was originally hosted by the great Ralph Emery and recorded […] The post Throwback To Waylon Jennings’ Bad*ss Performance Of “Rainy Day Woman” Back In 1975 first appeared on Whiskey Riff.

How stupid can you be? I ask myself that all the time but there always seems to be a new video that one-ups the last one I saw. Time and time again we see tourist doing some dumb stuff with bison. We’ve seen enough examples of why this is a bad idea, there’s one that sums it up perfect with this bison railroading another bison. If a bison can do that to a bison imagine what it can do to […] The post Dumb Tourist Tries To Ride A Bison In California… It Doesn’t Go Well first appeared on Whiskey Riff. Read More

The one time I saw Hall-of-Famer Randy Johnson pitch in-person, my friend turned to me and said, “Is Randy Johnson’s name a joke?” It was the first time I realized that Randy Johnson was both an intimidating, dominant pitcher and a sophomoric dick joke waiting to happen. He was 6’10” tall, threw 100 mph helmet-seeking-sidearm missiles, and had a moustache/mullet combo that only the most frightening and confident man in the world could pull off. His nickname was, appropriately, “The […] The post On This Date in 2004, Randy Johnson Brought “Big Unit Energy” to the Mound and Pitched a Perfect Game first appeared on Whiskey Riff. Read More
