"Thank God I'm a Country Boy" John Denver: World's Worst iPod
There was just about universal love for this foot-stomper from John Denver. John Denver had hit after hit in the mid 1970s, and this was one of them, goign all the way to #1 in 1975. Go ahead, crank it up, sing it loud and proud. And maybe swing...

World's Worst iPod: Jump 'N The Saddle Band "The Curly Shuffle"

With Father's Day coming up, we thought we'd choose one of the greatest dad songs of all time.  But since that song wasn't on the iPod, we decided to go with "Daddy Don't You Walk So Fast" by Wayne Newton. This song made...

Day 4: The Final Day of Bonnaroo
Today was another busy day at Bonnaroo. We started the day off by seeing Shakey Graves. I missed his show in Madison earlier this year so he was a must see on my list. Loved him! Right as he ended, a press conference with Ed Helms, Abigail...

Day 3: Saturday
Saturday was a very busy day! So many Triple M bands to see! So many concerts were back to back, so we did a lot of walking back and forth from the stages to the media compound. If you're ever in need of getting more steps in during the day,...
