The 5 Best Brooks & Dunn Covers on YouTube

Country singer Ronnie Dunn – one half of superduo Brooks & Dunn – talked with Taste of Country a bit last week about musicians that influenced him. Among Dunn’s more interesting recent influences: “I love Harrison’s slide guitar on ‘Something,’” the singer told Taste of Country.

Dunn has of course been impactful in his own wide-ranging way, and the wild diversity of Brooks & Dunn covers on YouTube are a pretty-great sample of his influence. Among the YouTube treasures we unearthed: a rocker girl singing a heartfelt cover of B&D’s ‘If You See Her, If You See Him’; a ukelele-toting troubadour singing his dog to sleep with ‘Neon Moon’; and a near-perfect bedroom rendition of ‘My Maria.’ Check ‘em out and more below, and don’t forget to sign up to see and meet Ronnie Dunn (KZIN Facebook) in Yakima, WA on June 21!

The Best Brooks & Dunn Music Videos – Our Top Five

The legendary country duo that was Brooks & Dunn "retired" back in 2009, but the famed band's ex-members Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn are still keeping busy.

Brooks is working on a new album and filming a western called 'To Kill a Memory' with "Boots On" singer Randy Houser. Dunn has a new album out and a hit single with 'Bleed Red,' and he'll be touring the nation solo for the next few months. You can sign up on our Facebook page KZIN Facebook for your chance to win two tickets and backstage passes to Dunn's July 21st show in Yakima, WA.

We got a little nostalgic thinking about all that history, though, so we surfed the tubes and collected what we think are the five best classic Brooks & Dunn music videos. Check 'em out, and let us know if we missed any (or if we're just flat wrong).

CONFESSIONS OF A MILITARY WIFE

This afternoon on the Puffman Show, we'll take a laugh-filled journey inside the lives of military wives. When stand-up comedienne and public speaker Mollie Gross married a Marine, she didn't know how much her life would change. She soon found out(!) and has written a book about it. Mollie will be joining me this afternoon at 4:35 to discuss her new book, "Confessions of a Military Wife and I'll give away a hard cover book this afternoon. Mollie told me that she will reveal everything you thought you knew about military wives...but didn't! Mollie says she remembers when she hit rock bottom. "There I was with no make-up on, hadn't showered, eating raw cookie dough out of the tube and ordering jewelry off the TV." And that was just her first day! Mollie uses laughter to support and inspire other wives facing challenges associated with the military lifestyle. The book lookss like a winner and I look forward to talking with Mollie this afternoon. Be the first caller after my interview to win Mollie's book. There's a great video featuring Mollie after the jump:

Brad Paisley on Carrie Underwood – ‘I Don’t Think There’s a Better Singer Than Her’

Taste of Country got an exclusive interview with Brad Paisley this week, in which, among other things, the country superstar talks about how Carrie Underwood has become his go-to duet partner.

"She’s probably pretty much my first choice to sing with when it comes to a duet with a woman like that. I mean, we just sort of share the same values and get along that well," Paisley tells Taste of Country. "I just don’t think there’s a better singer than her, so it’s sort of selfish to be able to sing with her and perform."

SHE WAS A JEWEL

North central Montana was saddened this week when we learned that Betty "Jewel" Wolk passed away at the age of 86 last Saturday in Great Falls. I don't think any of us can hear about the yearly Montana Storytellers Roundup this weekend in Cut Bank without thinking about Jewel.

The Five Best Kenny Chesney Covers on YouTube [VIDEO]

Kenny Chesney's accomplishments as a performer are second to none — as evidenced by his current "Goin' Coastal" tour, and the dazzling live sets documented in his new concert film, Kenny Chesney: Summer in 3-D. But Chesney's no slouch when it comes to songwriting, either — in fact, we think Chesney's live show wouldn't be anything without his powerhouse new-country songwriting as its foundation.

WEEKEND UPDATE FROM THE PUFFMAN

'm happy to say that our 29th annual KSEN/K 96 Radio Auction was a solid success. The phones ran constantly Thursday and Friday from 9 in the morning until after 5 in the evening. It was fun having the opportunity to offer our listeners in north central Montana some really nice merchandise and services, all at considerable savings. It was nice not only seeing and hearing from some folks we haven't heard from since our last radio auction. Today they are coming into the KSEN office in droves to pick up their merchandise and/or certificates. It's always good to "kick back" on Friday nights and over the weekend to digest all the fun and activity that took place over a two day period.
