LUCKYCOWBOY.COM TURNS 25 IN DECEMBER 1992-2017 NASHVILLE, TENN October 25, 2017 LuckyCowboy.com - On 6 August 1991, the World Wide Web became publicly available. Its creator, the now internationally known Tim Berners-Lee, posted a short summary of the project on the alt.hypertext newsgroup and gave birth to a new technology which would fundamentally change the world as we knew it. In 1990, working on a computer built by NeXT, the firm Steve Jobs launched after being pushed out of Apple in the mid-80s, Berners-Lee developed the first Web browser software called, fittingly, WorldWideWeb. By the end of that year he had a working prototype of the Web running on a server at CERN. On 6 August 1991, the World Wide Web went live to the world. There was no fanfare in the global press. In fact, most people around the world didn’t even know what the Internet was. Even if they did, the revolution the Web ushered in was still but a twinkle in Tim Berners-Lee’s eye. Instead, the launch was marked by way of a short post from Berners-Lee on the alt.hypertext newsgroup, which is archived to this day on Google Groups. LuckyCowboy.com was launched in December 1992 and was also know as 'The Lucky Cowboy' on AOL. Today, even with semi-retirement the Lucky Cowboy still rides the internet. LuckyCowboy.com still live after twenty five years. Lucky Cowboy was even featured on AOL Music page in September 2004 next to Kenny Chesney in Hot AOL Talk.
WHO IS THAT CRAZY LUCKY COWBOY? NASHVILLE, TENN November 1, 2017 LuckyCowboy.com - Ron Wilkinson AKA 'Lucky Cowboy' was born at a very young age in the "Land of Lincoln." Alton, Illinois, to be exact, is where old Lucky is from. Alton is famous for its celebrities of stage and screen. Remember Robert Wadlow, the tallest man in the world? How about TV star Clint Walker of "Cheyenne" and Butch Calvey the singer? Alton is also where one of the famous Lincoln/Douglas debates took place, and where Bluff City Beer was made. It seems Lucky was just destined to be a famous person. In his early years, Lucky appeared at the Madison Avenue Corral in Alton as a live DJ for WOKZ radio. He's been a trapeze artist, a motorcycle stunt rider, and even hosted his own carnival. He was a National Indian Chief for the Boy Scouts of America and managed a scout camp. He received an honorable discharge from the U.S. Air Force. Worked for major companies such as Coca Cola, Frito-Lay, Anheuser-Busch, Minnesota State Lottery and even managed a bar in a cave. Lucky spent some time in Minnesota where he still has many country fans. Nowadays, old Lucky is based in Nashville, TN, Music City USA. Here he founded Lucky Cowboy Productions. Member of the Country Music Association (CMA). You might catch him anywhere in Nashville, or somewhere in the rest of the USA promoting country music. He's even been on the Today Show! Lucky even has his own backyard concert and it's in it's 12th year. But you'll always find him wearing his famous forty gallon orange cowboy hat - you can't miss him wherever he goes. Lucky's favorite song is "I Feel Lucky." His handprints are on the WE Fest "Walk of Fame," and there's even a ceramic bobblehead doll of Lucky Cowboy (2001). Yep, you can bet old Lucky will continue to be a star in his own right. Watch out for The Lucky Cowboy as you might just get "Lucky!" Yeeeeeeeeehaw!!! And he's been playing cowboy since 1992. Happy 25th Anniversary 2017.

2017 51st CMA AWARDS NASHVILLE GARTH BROOKS 'ENTERTAINER OF THE YEAR' NASHVILLE, TENN November 9, 2017 LuckyCowboy.com - The 51st annual CMA Awards didn't start with an all-star performance on Wednesday night, although it got to one of those quickly enough. It opened instead with Eric Church alone on a half-lit stage, singing "Amazing Grace." Country music has been battered in recent weeks, and this awards gala – the first to take place since the brutal deaths of more than 50 fans at Route 91 Harvest festival in Las Vegas, Nevada on October 1st – didn't shy away from that fact. Church's performance recalled Jason Aldean's cold open last month on Saturday Night Live, less than a week after his set at Route 91 was interrupted by the shooting spree of Stephen Paddock. Segueing straight into Darius Rucker's all-star sing-along of Hootie & the Blowfish's 1994 hit "Hold My Hand," the opening set the tone for how the CMAs would handle that tragedy: by turning to God and, for the first of many times during the evening, to music from all corners. "We do what families do," Carrie Underwood said during the opening monologue. "We come together and we pray together." Her cohost, Brad Paisley, took a robust tone, declaring, "The best thing to do is sing our music loud and proud." Later on, Underwood delivered a touching tribute to those who lost their lives in Las Vegas during her candlelit In Memoriam performance of "Softly and Tenderly."
The CMAs' efforts at healing proved to be a mixed bag, and the monologue played a part. Underwood and Paisley, who celebrated their 10th year cohosting the event, joked about the "guidelines" mandating the awards show as a politics-free zone, spinning it into a bit mocking President Donald Trump. But the context wasn't very funny: Organizers had tried to bar mention of topics like gun control, thereby stifling conversation of the issues that make tragedies like Route 91 or last Sunday's mass killing at a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas possible in the first place. Those guidelines were ultimately retracted, but the artists remained on their best behavior Wednesday night. The statements of the evening were left to someone like Keith Urban, who made the live debut of his brand-new song "Female," which had premiered earlier in the day. Written as a response to the sexual assault scandals that have reached from Hollywood to Nashville, it was well-meaning but slightly tone deaf considering there wasn't a single woman on the stage. It didn't help that some of the biggest upsets of the evening tended to go in favor of male performers, who were the only ones nominated for Entertainer of the Year – an honor Garth Brooks claimed for the second straight year. On more than one occasion, those upsets went specifically against Miranda Lambert. While she came away with Female Vocalist of the Year honors, it felt like a consolation prize given that she had already missed out on Album, Song, and Single of the Year (the last of those going to Urban), each of which she deserved to win.
