On KRKC Country at Night: Tug Cowart (10p-3a)
I grew up in Northwest Georgia in the City of Dalton. It’s the Carpet Capital of the World. If you’re walking on carpet, it was probably made there. After high school I joined the US Navy where I spent four years as an Operations Specialist aboard the USS South Carolina CGN-37 and USS John F. Kennedy CV-67 in Norfolk, VA. and Jacksonville, FL. I have been married for 14 years and I have an 11 year old son named Jakob. Most days you can find me near a ball field, as Jakob is obsessed with sports. He plays year round baseball, also playing football and basketball in season. I love being a dad; it is the most important thing is my life. If we’re not watching Jakob play ball, we’re probably watching a game or in the front yard throwing a ball around ourselves. I love country music, I was raised on it but I enjoy everything from Pop to Hip Hop, Rock to Contemporary Christian.
KRKC Country Mornings with Colleen Addair (7a-12p )
My radio career began in Southern WV at 16. I’ve been lucky enough to host nationally syndicated radio shows: “Colleen’s Classic Country USA, and “Cross Country Songs of Faith.” — Past TV stints: Host on the “Shop At Home” network, and Weathercaster. I’m married to Scott, the great hunter (think Duck Dynasty — beard and all). We have one daughter, Katie, who is about to finish her college career as a registered nurse. We are all country music fans. Many evenings at our house are spent fishing at our pond. — I am the lead vocalist of a worship band. My faith is very important to me. — I’ve ridden motorcycles since I was a kid, and LOVE my Indian Chief. We are currently restoring a ’69 Camaro that I will drive a LOT. — Early on, I pledged my heart to Elvis, and then Waylon Jennings. I love how Keith Urban feels the music when he plays, and Kenny Chesney’s incredible knack of picking great songs. There are so many talented acts, but the sound that Eric Church and Zac Brown are bringing to country is really cool. I also believe there’s a place for artists like Steven Tyler. — I’m just a country fan. Period.
KRKC Country Afternoons with Jessie Addy (12p-5p)
I was born in Dallas, TX where my dad was following his radio dream and my mom was a Registered Nurse, but I mostly grew up in Michigan. I was the kid in school that wanted to be everyone’s friend, so I was in the band (Tuba), hung out with the theatre kids and played basketball, baseball and football. My younger brother shared my passion for music, which made for a noisy house growing up. I graduated from Michigan State University (Go Green!) with a degree in Geography and planned on being a teacher. I really enjoy any chance to be outside fishing, golfing or skiing….which I have zero talent for any of them. My inside time is spent trying to learn more about wine, trying to learn Spanish and trying to perfect the 3 Chicken dishes I can cook. I’m so grateful to be able to listen and talk about music for a living and maybe I’ll see you at a show sometime!
