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!!!

2016 BILLBOARD MUSIC AWARDS LAS VEGAS, NEV. May 23, 2016 – Thomas Rhett, Luke Bryan and Chris Stapleton took home a trophy at Sunday night’s (May 22) 2016 Billboard Music Awards. Bryan received Top Country Artist, while Stapleton earned Top Country Album. Rhett, meanwhile, was honored with Top Country Song, for his smash hit “Die a Happy Man.” “This is incredible,” Rhett said while accepting his honor. “Never in a million years did I think that being a songwriter sitting on a bus writing a song about who we love would win an award like this.” Rhett was the only country artist to accept an award during the BBMA’s three-hour broadcast ceremony. Other nominated acts included Sam Hunt, Carrie Underwood and Zac Brown Band, among others. Country-turned-pop star Taylor Swift was also nominated for eight awards, including Top Artist; she took home one of them, Top Touring Artist.
Recording artist Thomas Rhett accepts the Top Country Song award for 'Die A Happy Man' onstage during the 2016 Billboard Music Awards at T-Mobile Arena on May 22, 2016 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
ADELE BEATS OUT TAYLOR SWIFT FOR TOP ARTIST 2016 BILLBOARD MUSIC AWARDS
Recording artist Adele accepts the Top Billboard 200 Album for '25' onscreen during the 2016 Billboard Music Awards at T-Mobile Arena on May 22, 2016 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The world has decided who’s the best artist right now, and unsurprisingly, it’s Adele! At the 2016 Billboard Music Awards, the biggest award of the night was finally announced, and we’re so glad that it’s the “Hello” singer.Taylor Swift was nominated for eight awards: Top Artist, Top Female Artist, Top Touring Artist, Top Billboard 200 Artist, Top Billboard 200 Album (1989), Top Hot 100 Artist, Top Radio Songs Artist, and Top Social Media Artist. She took home the award for Top Touring Artist. She has a total of 22 BBMAs from 2009 through 2015, and the win from tonight increases that count to 23!
WHERE'S TAYLOR SWIFT?
Taylor Swift show here at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards did not attend the 2016 awards. While the 2016 Billboard Music Awards were packed with A-list performances (Bieber! Britney! Adele!), one performance we won't be seeing is a number from our girl Taylor Swift. Tthere was no sign of the singer on the E! red carpet. And the chances that Swift will be there to inevitably collect her winnings have been made a little slimmer with boyfriend Calvin Harris' car accident over the weekend. Though the Scottish DJ will ultimately be OK, he sustained injuries from the accident and was reportedly told to rest by doctors. Swift was no where to be found at the awards show or red carpet.
2016 BILLBOARD MUSIC AWARDS - MADONNA HONORS PRINCE, DION INSPIRES AT BILLBOARD AWARDS
LAS VEGAS, NEV. May 23, 2016 – This year’s Billboard Music Awards promised to be heavy on emotion during its biggest performances by iconic artists such as Celine Dion and Madonna. And they certainly delivered on Sunday night at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas with a political statement about transgender rights, a tender Prince tribute and Dion’s return after personal losses. These are the most memorable moments of the night. Celine Dion’s first television appearance since her husband, René Angélil, and her brother, Daniel Dion, died in January was among the most anticipated moments of the night. The international star turned her tragedy into a triumphant display of strength and resiliency as she performed Queen’s “The Show Must Go On.” Backed by an orchestra and talented violinist Lindsey Stirling, Dion raised her hands to the sky and even did a little hip shake to make for the uplifting moment of the night. After accepting the Billboard Icon Award, Dion was surprised by her son and apologized for crying, which no one would fault her for. She thanked her legions of fans for being with her through good times and bad and dedicated the award to her late husband, who she said will “continue to watch over me from up above.”
Billboard took some criticism when Madonna was chosen to pay tribute to the late great Prince, but together with Stevie Wonder, her heartfelt performance to the musical icon who died April 21 at age 57 was touching. After being introduced by Roots drummer Questlove who skillfully articulated the impact of the musical genius, the tribute started with a recording of Prince’s “Let’s Go Crazy,” as all the lights in the venue turned purple. Madonna appeared seated on a purple velvet throne in a lacy glittery suit with a cane and sang a tender version of “Nothing Compares 2 U,” as images of Prince played on a screen behind her. Stevie Wonder joined her on a rousing “Purple Rain” duet. It became a crowd singalong with artists like Rihanna singing and dancing as the arena lit up with thousands of purple wristbands.
BRITNEY SPEARS WARMED UP THE 2016 BILLBOARD MUSIC AWARDS SHOW IN HER RED BIKINI
Britney Spears’ opening medley of her nearly two decades of hits started off stiff, but by the end of the performance, she finally warmed up. The singer, who received the Billboard Millennium Award, came out of the smoke joined by more than a dozen dancers and quickly disrobed into a red bikini. But her robotic dancing and lip-syncing made the performance feel like an unemotional overview of her Las Vegas show. However, after straddling a giant guitar for a cover of “I Love Rock n’ Roll” she finally loosened up. She danced and gyrated across multiple stages to the soundtrack of her greatest hits, such as “Slave for U,” and “Toxic.”
EVERYTHING CIARA WORE OR DIDN'T WEAR AT THE 2016 BILLBOARD AWARDS
OH NO! ABC CANCELS COUNTRY MUSIC DRAMA 'NASHVILLE' AFTER 4 SEASONS NASHVILLE, TENN MAY 14, 2016 - In a surprise move, reports say the hit show “Nashville” has been cancelled. The musical drama starring Connie Britton and Hayden Panettiere lasted for four seasons on the network. ABC said Thursday it’s canceling the show, along with crime romp “Castle” and puppet comedy “The Muppets.” More goners: “Galavant,” ”Blood & Oil,” ”The Family” and “Agent Carter.” The cancellations follow a recent shakeup in the network’s executive ranks, with ABC Entertainment Group President Paul Lee replaced by Channing Dungey. The decision to end “Nashville” drew an immediate lament from the city’s mayor, Megan Barry, who called the loss of the series filmed in her town a disappointment. “Nashville” has three episodes left to air, with the finale, titled “Maybe You’ll Appreciate Me,” set for May 25. Connie Britton and Hayden Panettiere star as country music divas.
