Ramblin's from the guy you hear on the radio!
Hey it's Braden, catch up with me weekday afternoons (and sometimes on the weekends) from 3pm-7pm. We'll talk country music, country people, life in Fredericksburg, fun stuff, traffic, and weather. Plus I always have tons of FREE stuff to giveaway. See you then!
The news came at a shock to everyone - including Garth. Country legend Garth Brooks appeared Monday (December 9th) on Good Morning America to promote his new music box set "Blame It All On My Roots."
During the interview, Robin Roberts asked Garth if he cared to address rumors about a possible tour. Garth replied, "between you and me, I think we'll make an announcement very soon."
Robin shot back with, "if you want to, you can make it right now." A short pause from Garth, who answered back, "well, you know what — since it's you, and since we've had a history forever, let's announce it. We're going on a world tour in 2014." And of course, the studio audience went wild!
Garth has been saying for years now that he would return to the road once his children had graduated high school. And as long as he still fit in his Wranglers. Keep posted for more tour details coming up after the New Year.

When it comes to holiday shopping, the name is nothing new. Hammacher Schlemmer. They have been in business since 1848 with mail-order services and then became even more popular with help from the internet. And it seems like in the last dozen years or so, they have made a name for themselves with over the top gift offerings. In the past, you could buy a personal submarine, a restored World War II torpedo boat, futuristic vehicles, and the list goes on. If you have the money, that is.
This year looks to be no different for the retailer. The offerings for 2013 will include a $90,000 submarine that mimics a killer whale, a $58,000 golf cart hovercraft, and the best one of them all... a $200,000 fire-spewing 1960's "Batmobile" replica!
So accurate it requires almost a year to complete, this is the officially licensed, roadworthy replica of the Batmobile featured in the iconic 1960s TV show. Built on a custom Lincoln chassis, this crime-fighting cruiser comes standard with a 430-horsepower, 383 Blueprint Crate engine and a Monster TH350 automatic transmission. Though equipped with neither atomic batteries for power nor turbines for speed, a rear-facing propane tank creates the same afterburner effect as the original. The vehicle's cockpit honors the gadgetry of the TV series with a blinking Batphone, switch-operated electric actuators that open the hood and trunk, and a rotating red beacon to alert citizens while in pursuit of fiendish criminals. Other intriguing, if less functional, accessories include a glowing detect-a-scope screen, a Batbeam ray that raises from a hood-mounted antenna, and empty rear parachute packs. The vehicle's exterior bears all the hallmarks of its namesake, from bubble-canopy windshields to chrome "rocket" tubes behind the rear windshield. Though the original Batmobile lacked rearview mirrors, this street-legal model comes with clamp-on side mirrors as well as a rear video camera. Special conditions and guarantee limitations apply.
