    Big Night for Great Escape Artists at the CMAs Last Night!

     

    How can I forget our Great Escape two years ago with Little Big Town… we stayed at the Iberostar Paraiso Beach and they put on a heck of a show!  Not to mention our listeners had the chance to meet LBT and their band, relax on the beach and maybe get a few after dinner drinks in.  And now, here they were winning Vocal Group of the Year and Single of the Year at the CMAs last night.  Congratulations Little Big Town!

     

    And this year… WOW.  This year is your chance to vacation with the Vocal Duo of the Year – Thompson Square!  They had planned to join us last year, but after Shawna’s dad became ill, had to cancel and promised they’d come this year.  We’re excited to have such a big name Duo joining us this year!  Plus with up and coming artists like Jerrod Niemann, Jana Kramer and Edens Edge, the fun is going to be endless. 

     

    You do still have time to join us.  Here’s the scoop.  We are staying at the 5-Star Royal Playa del Carmen for 7 nights with your choice of February 2-9 or 3-10.  This resort is literally right next to popular Fifth Avenue.   Our Milwaukee flights into Cancun are completely sold out for both Saturday and Sunday.  You can fly from Chicago O’Hare on Saturday, February 2 and reserve and oceanview category room or higher.  There are very few gardenview rooms still available leaving Sunday, February 3. 

     

    These trips really are a memorable getaway for the winter, especially when you’re traveling with over 300 fellow country music lovers.  It’s no wonder we have a nice combination of repeat travelers and new travelers!  We have 3 concerts planned, autograph sessions with all of the artists, Y100 morning broadcasts and all you can eat and drink that week.  We’re in Great Escape heaven.

    You can still join us by reserving your trip with Fox World Travel.  Call 866-463-6946 or visit GoFox.com here.

  • Wisconsin guy does good fishin' on the Mississippi!

    Posted by Dan Stone

    The idea is to find something you love to do and find a way to get paid for it! ~ Dan

    Pro Danny Plautz of Madison, Wis., crossed the stage with three walleye weighing 6 pounds, 2 ounces Sunday to claim the National Guard FLW Walleye Tour Championship on the Mississippi River. Plautz, with a four-day total of 15 walleye for 27-2, won by a 2-pound, 3-ounce margin over pro Ed Stachowski of Canton, Mich., who caught five walleye weighing 7-13 for a four-day total of 16 walleye weighing 24-15, which was good for $19,000. Sunday’s weigh-in marked the conclusion of the championship tournament which featured 42 of the world’s best professional walleye anglers. Plautz won $85,000 for his efforts on the water.
