The Lucky Cowboy - biography

Who is that crazy cowboy?

Lucky 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. 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. 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! 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. Yep, you can bet old Lucky will continue to be a star in his own right.

Watch out for Lucky as you might just get "Lucky!" Yeeeeeeeeehaw!!! Let's Party Like A Cowboy! LUCKY COWBOY Since 1992

RENEGADE RADIO NASHVILLE LIVE



Friday Dec. 19, 2014



Craig Wayne Boyd, the country rocker from Blake Shelton's team, was named the winner of “The Voice” Tuesday Dec. 16, 2014.
COUNTRY SINGER CRAIG WAYNE BOYD CROWNED 'THE VOICE' CHAMPION
UNIVERSAL CITY, CALIF December 17, 2014 - Country fans have spoken again. Craig Wayne Boyd, the country rocker from Blake Shelton's team, was named the winner of "The Voice" Tuesday. Boyd is the third country singer to win the NBC sing-off.

The father from Nashville, Tennessee, was up against three finalists from Adam Levine's team: Runner-up Matt McAndrew, Chris Jamison, who took third place and Damien Lawson, who nabbed fourth. This is the fourth win for country star Shelton.

"We went into this thing with the odds stacked against us," Shelton said Tuesday during a post-finale news conference. "Will I rub it in Adam's face? He may quit the show before I'm done rubbing this in his face!"

Boyd told reporters of his struggles to make ends meet while pursuing his dreams. "It truly feels like validation that all the hard work that I put in up to this point has been worth it. I remember more than a year ago ... saying 'listen I may have to quit because it's not paying my bills. I'm losing my house, lost my pickup.' I didn't know what I was going to do." Boyd wins a record deal and the $100,000 grand prize. Jennifer Hudson, Ed Sheeran, Bruno Mars, Mark Ronson, Jessie J, Meghan Trainor and Hozier performed during the two-hour finale.

JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE AND GARTH BROOKS SING 'FRIENDS IN LOW PLACES'
FRIDAY NIGHT IN NASHVILLE

NASHVILLE, TENN December 20, 2014 - Long before the world got to know Justin Timberlake, 33-year-old pop superstar – who played another sold-out concert at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena on Friday night – there was "Justin Randall."

That was the name the Tennessee native went by at age 11, when he made his television debut on "Star Search." Wearing a cowboy hat and bolo tie, he sang Alan Jackson's "Love's Got a Hold On You" with all the twang he could muster. A few years later, a teenage Timberlake made it on "The Mickey Mouse Club," ditched the hat, tie and the twang, and never really looked back. Not until Friday night, that is. On Friday, Justin Randall made a comeback of sorts – with a little help from Garth Brooks.

Just after intermission at Friday's show, Timberlake had a mischievous grin as he picked up an acoustic guitar. He played the unmistakable opening chords to Brooks' "Friends in Low Places," and the Nashville audience screamed in approval. "I mean, this is the country music capital of the world, right?" he asked, leading the band into the first verse and chorus of the country staple. But then he cut them off.

"Hold on," he said, settling into a southern drawl. "Now something don't feel right…I mean, if you're going to do this (song)…" He paused. "Garth?"

The room screamed even louder as Brooks came into view, joining Timberlake at center stage to trade lines through the rest of the song. Timberlake hopped up and down with glee as Brooks took the lead on the second verse, and the country star pulled out his iPhone towards the end of the song to capture the experience from his point of view. After several hugs, Brooks waved goodbye to the crowd, and Timberlake sprawled out on the ground, as if to say, "I can die now."

AMERICAN COUNTRY COUNTDOWN WINNERS:
NASHVILLE, TENN December 16, 2014 - The inaugural American Country Countdown Awards were held Monday night (Dec. 15) at Nashville's Music City Center, and as producers hoped, the night was akin to a Christmas office party to celebrate the most popular acts in the business.

Standing alone at the top of the winners' list was Broken Bow's Jason Aldean, who was voted as Artist of the Year. Aldean received the trophy from NASCAR great Jimmie Johnson and Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw before reveling in the honor with a performance of "Just Gettin' Started." In his speech, he recalled listening to the syndicated countdown show while growing up in Georgia.

A pair of the industry's biggest stars were recognized with special achievement awards. Kenny Chesney performed his current single, "When It's Gone" after being introduced by actor Vince Vaughn, who praised Chesney's success as a live act and a recording artist. The Groundbreaker Award recognizes an artist who has consistently pushed the boundaries and is a trailblazer in the realm of concerts, musical accomplishment, creative innovation and connecting with fans across the United States. "God gave me a wonderful gift, and I have been able to take that gift all over. Music and songs are the most powerful things we have in our lives," he told the audience.


Honoree Kenny Chesney received the Groundbreaker Award onstage during the 2014 American Country Countdown Awards at Music City Center on December 15, 2014 in Nashville, Tennessee.

In addition, Country Music Hall of Fame member Reba McEntire was given the first-ever NASH Icon Award, presented by longtime friend and American Country Countdown radio host Kix Brooks. Kelly Clarkson and Lambert paid tribute to Reba by performing "How Blue," "Take It Back" and "Fancy," on which McEntire joined in to a standing ovation. The NASH Icon Award celebrates an iconic artist whose extraordinary talent has influenced generations of musicians.

MADDIE & TAE ARE ON TOP OF THE WORLD RIGHT NOW

'GIRL IN A COUNTRY SONG' RUNNING ATOP THE AIR PLAY CHARTS

NASHVILLE, TENN December 13, 2014 - New duo Maddie & Tae all but cut purveyors of bro country off at the knees with their debut single "Girl in a Country Song." The tongue-in-cheek hip-shaker transparently references decidedly non-feminist lyrics from artists like Florida Georgia Line, Jason Aldean, Billy Currington and Blake Shelton. When Rolling Stone Country talked to Maddie Marlow and Tae Dye recently, the buzzed-about teenagers — Marlow is 19, Dae, 18 — had just seen the first cut of their video for "Girl in a Country Song." The final version, which casts country "bros" in the clichéd roles of video vixens, was released.

Maddie and Tae Make Bro-Beating History With 'Girl in a Country Song.' While their sassy debut hit sits atop the radio charts, the teen duo prepare to release a very different single. "We're always trying to write songs, and we already have over two hundred," says Maddie Marlow. "The theme of the record will be honesty, honestly. With everything that Tae and I do, we want to make sure it's true and honest to who we are as people and artists."

For now, the wistful ballad "Fly" will be the next single — a sweeter, less controversial approach than "Girl in a Country Song." But can we expect the new album to contain some similarly provocative material? MADDIE & TAE ARE THE NEXT BIG THING!

TAYLOR SWIFT PERFORMS IN HER UNDIES AT VICTORIA'S SECRET FASHION SHOW. WELL, WHAT ELSE WOULD YOU EXPECT AT A VICTORIA'S SECRET SHOW?

I know what I want for Christmas this year
I hope my note got to Santa on time
I’m a little bit nervous,
It’s kind of a big thing I’m asking for
I don’t know if I deserve it but, boy, if I get it
I’ll never ask for anything more
It shines, it’s new
And it’s the one wish that I wish would come true
This year for Christmas I just wanna be with Lucky Cowboy.

Ooooh, don't you think it's a pretty good plan. All I want for Christmas is a real good tan. All I want for Christmas is a real good tan.

Ooooh, don't you think it's a pretty good plan, All I want for Christmas is a real good tan. _KENNY CHESNEY

THE INAUGURAL NEW COUNTRY FESTIVAL PLANNED FOR STATE FAIRGROUNDS
NASHVILLE, TENN September 29, 2014 - A new country festival is planned for the state fairgrounds in Nashville. It’s been 13 years since Fan Fair (now known as the CMA Music Festival) left its longtime home at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds and moved to downtown Nashville. But some country fans haven’t forgotten the way things used to be.

A new music festival called the Country FanJam is drawing inspiration from Fan Fair’s glory days and plans to bring four days of live country music back to the fairgrounds on June 11-14, 2015 — the same dates as next year’s CMA Music Fest.

FanJam is the brainchild of Nashville studio owner and producer Dale Guthery, who lays out his vision in the event’s official announcement: “I wanted to bring back something exciting to the average country fan, that both old school and new school music lovers can enjoy for a reasonable price.”

The festival plans to reveal its first performers in October. Tickets are $25 per day or $100 for a four-day pass. For more information, call 615-944-0822 or visit www.countryfanjam.com.




TAYLOR SWIFT TO RELEASES NEW ALBUM '1989' “SHAKE IT OFF” VIDEO RELEASED

GRATH BROOKS RECLAIMS CROWN AT TOP OF SHOWS SOLD-OUT IN ST. LOUIS

ST. LOUIS, MO December 4, 2014 - Garth Brooks performs for a sold-out crowd at Scottrade Center on Thursday, December 4, 2014.

It was Garth 101, Garth Brooks explained, when the country superstar played the first of his four-night run Thursday night at Scottrade Center. Brooks, now back in full swing after periodically coming out of his retirement, returned as if he’d never left, just in time to reclaim his crown. He last appeared in St. Louis in 1996 with shows at the Kiel Center.


His two hour-plus country-rock opus, performed in front of a crowd estimated at more than 18,000, took fans on a journey from his 1989 self-titled debut to his current album “Man Against Machine.” “Man Against Machine" is his first release since 2001’s “Scarecrow" and was also the theme of the opening as fans watched the stage while a revolving “G” logo on screen appeared to malfunction. A computerized voice advised the crowd to not be alarmed as the machines were taking over, leading to Brooks’ arrival amid rapturous applause.

It was clear his St. Louis fans have missed him. “Lock the world outside and have fun,” a smiling Brooks said. Brooks told fans that he’s 152 now (he’s 52) and not in the best shape, but it was time for him to “pick my big ass up” and carry on. He also said in order for him to make it through the show, fans had to sing along with him, which they had no problem doing as he cranked out staples “The River,” “Unanswered Prayers,” “Two Pina Coladas” and “Papa Loved Mama.”

In spite of the joking disclaimers, Brooks gave a fully energetic performance, not exactly spit shined to perfection (too many lines dropped due to laughing or smiling, for example) but far from rough. It was about having fun, and that’s what he delivered.

He and his 10-piece band, including a trio of backing singers, plowed through his full repertoire with “Rodeo,” “Two of a Kind, Workin’ on a Full House” and “Beaches of Cheyenne” with no real frills, just straightforward singing and playing on the set with a huge video cube that hung above.

“We’re bringing all of our old stuff with us. That’s what we do,” he said. During the amped-up “Ain’t Goin’ Down (Until the Sun Comes Up,” Brooks ran back and forth across the stage with a camera, projecting fans’ images on the video cube.

In the first of two nods to unrest in Ferguson, without mentioning it directly, Brooks said the news makes him so “pissed” he has to turn the TV off and it’s going to come down to “you and me loving each other,” a segue into his new “People Loving People” single. Later, he told the crowd “the world was watching” and he didn’t know what to expect when he got to St. Louis, but he received nothing but love.

Trisha Yearwood, Brooks' wife, delivered a low-key mini set midway through the show featuring hits “XXX’s and OOO’s (An American Girl),” “How Do I Live,” new song “Prize Fighter” and “She’s in Love With the Boy.” The last song came with a “kiss cam” segment where couples kissed if they were caught on screen. The last couple was a pre-recorded insert of Brooks and Yearwood.

TAYLOR SWIFT SURPRISES PINT SIZE FAN IN CONNECTICUT
When Taylor Swift surprises a fan, she surprises a fan.


NASHVILLE, TENN November 17, 2014 - The chart-topping singer headed up to Connecticut on Friday (Nov. 14) to gift one of her biggest fans an early holiday present.

Stephanie Barnett and her family got a visit from the "Blank Space" singer, who made sure she didn't come empty handed. She brought Barnett's son, 2-year-old Leyton, a kid-sized Mercedes to drive around in.

"She went to FAO Schwartz and got a bunch of stuff for Leyton," the North Haven mom told NBC Connecticut. "The car was so big, she's like, 'I don't know how to ship it, so I thought I'd bring it over.' And I was like, who does that? It's incredible."

Barnett and Swift met on social media several years prior to the surprise visit. Swift reportedly spent two hours with the family on Friday. "She's unbelievable," Barnett said. "The things she does for her fans, and she's a really amazing person. She's gotten a lot of people through so much more than anyone can imagine," Barnett said. "I was literally bawling on my couch, like, inconsolably, that she would do this for me and my son."

They weren't the only Swifties who got in some face time with her. Swift later headed to a local Starbucks, where she was greeted and posed with by local Quinnipiac University students.

TAYLOR PHOTOBOMBS FAMILY PORTRAITS IN NASHVILLE PARK

NASHVILLE, TENN November 14, 2014 - Taylor Swift is known for doing some pretty awesome things for her fans, and the latest happened last weekend at a Nashville park. The international superstar, who was out for a jog at Percy Warner Park in Belle Meade, took time to pose for an impromptu photo shoot with a couple of young fans. Both girls were having family pictures taken when Swift walked by.

Photographer Sarah Bailey said she was snapping pictures when the famous face caught her eye and the eye of her 9-year-old client. “I said, ‘Did you see who that was?' She was just like nodding her head. She couldn't say anything.” Swift said ‘Hi' and told the girl how pretty she looked, then went a step further and asked for a picture with her.

“She said, ‘Do you want to get your picture with me?' The little girl was like, ‘Yes!' and just nodded her head. She couldn't even talk,” Bailey explained. The country star turned pop singer told the girl to strike a pose and Bailey snapped a few pictures. Swift also took time to hang out with another young fan, 8-year-old Anna Grace Farner, and her family. They were having family Christmas card photos taken at the time.
It was a day neither girl nor their photographers will forget.

BONNAROO SETS DATES FOR 2015 FESTIVAL
JUNE 11-14 SAME DATES AS CMA MUSIC FESTIVAL
SAME DATES AS NEW COUNTRY FAMJAM FESTIVAL AT STATE FAIRGROUNDS

NASHVILLE, TENN October 17, 2014 - Bonnaroo, one of the world’s most successful music festivals, has revealed its 2015 events will take place June 11-14. Events will remain located at the 700-acre farm in Manchester, Tenn. Tickets for the upcoming festival are not yet available. Early bird registration is expected soon. The four-day festival launched in 2002 with little traditional advertising and sold out its 70,000 tickets in 11 days. Since then, organizers have continued to expand, reaching more than 90,000 for the 2014 event. Both CMA Music Festival downtown Nashville and the new Country FamJam Festival at the state fairgrounds are scheduled the same dates. Now, that ought to spread the visitors around. Lucky Cowboy Sez: "Poor decisions on the festivals directors on picking the same dates."

TAYLOR SWIFT TO HEADLINE THE NEW YORK TIMES SQUARE NEW YEAR'S EVE
NASHVILLE, TENN October 28, 2014 - ABC announced Monday that Swift is the headliner for “New Year’s Rockin’ Eve,” the annual countdown show hosted by Ryan Seacrest. The show plans some 38 musical performances over five and a half hours on the air. No other musical acts have been announced yet. Swift’s hit “Shake It Off” is currently on the charts, and she’ll be promoting her pop-oriented album “1989.” It will be Seacrest’s 10th year hosting the annual celebration that was originated by Dick Clark.

KATY PERRY TO PERFORM 2015 SUPER BOWL HALFTIME SHOW

NASHVILLE, TENN October 10, 2014 - Well, it's not a country artist selected for Super Bowl. After some speculation as to which musical artist will rock the stage for the 2015 Super Bowl, it looks like the NFL has chosen Katy Perry to take on next year's halftime show. Upon informing the musical acts of their candidacy a couple months back, the National Football League also asked the hitmakers' representatives if they would be willing "to contribute a portion of their post-Super Bowl tour income to the league, or if they would make some other type of financial contribution, in exchange for the halftime gig." Katy had said in a interview, "I'm not the kind of girl who would pay to play the Super Bowl." Maybe the NFL decided to veto that idea.


MEET MADDIE & TAE - HITTING NASHVILLE WITH 'Girl In A Country Song'
Maddie & Tae is an American country music duo composed of vocalists Maddie Marlow and Taylor Elizabeth Dye. Maddie Marlow is a native of Sugar Land, Texas, and Taylor Dye is a native of Ada, Oklahoma. The two met age 15 through the assistance of a vocal coach who worked with both of them. The two began working with representatives of Big Machine Records and songwriter Aaron Scherz. After finishing high school, the two moved to Nashville, Tennessee to begin their musical career.

In 2014, Big Machine revived the Dot Records name for a new imprint. Maddie & Tae were confirmed as the first signees of the label in June 2014. They wrote their debut single, "Girl in a Country Song", with Scherz, who co-produced it with Dann Huff. The song is a criticism of the bro-country trend of 2013 and 2014. www.MaddieandTae.com

THE INAUGURAL NEW COUNTRY FESTIVAL PLANNED FOR STATE FAIRGROUNDS
NASHVILLE, TENN September 29, 2014 - A new country festival is planned for the state fairgrounds in Nashville. It’s been 13 years since Fan Fair (now known as the CMA Music Festival) left its longtime home at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds and moved to downtown Nashville. But some country fans haven’t forgotten the way things used to be.

A new music festival called the Country FanJam is drawing inspiration from Fan Fair’s glory days and plans to bring four days of live country music back to the fairgrounds on June 11-14, 2015 — the same dates as next year’s CMA Music Fest.

FanJam is the brainchild of Nashville studio owner and producer Dale Guthery, who lays out his vision in the event’s official announcement: “I wanted to bring back something exciting to the average country fan, that both old school and new school music lovers can enjoy for a reasonable price.”

The festival plans to reveal its first performers in October. Tickets are $25 per day or $100 for a four-day pass. For more information, call 615-944-0822 or visit www.countryfanjam.com.
