Sandra Won A Ride On The Bull!

Sandra Piantanida rode away with a brand new truck on Saturday at our Win A Ride On The Bull Grand Prize Party held at Lithia Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Fiat of Santa Rosa (11/17/18). Despite poor air quality conditions, more than 40 of our 50+ key code holders were on hand for a chance to win a free 2-year lease on a brand new 2018 Ram 1500 4x4 Express Crew Cab truck from Lithia. That group was reduced to seven finalists using the unique key code numbers that each contestant held. Two other finalists each selected one of 7 identical looking Ram Truck keys and tried the ignition without success before Sandra got her turn and the #5 key she selected started the truck! As you might expect, she freaked out when the engine fired up! Shortly afterward, she talked with The Bull's Carey Edwards in front of the envious crowd.

The six finalists who didn't win the truck still walked away with runner-up prizes that included $500 gift cards from Montgomery Village, Red Wing Shoes, Sportman's Warehouse and North Bay Laser & Skin Care Center, as well as a camera from Shutterbug Camera Shops and a Fire Pit Bistro Patio Set from Ace Hardware at Guerneville/Fulton. Go to the Photo Gallery to see more of the fun!

Kane's "Krazy" New Truck

Kane Brown bought a new truck…and it is ridiculous!  Kane posted this and a few other photos to his Instagram account.  The lift on this baby has got to be…Idk…four to five feet?!  Let’s put it this way, there’s an optional elevator to get up to the cab!  Insane.  Depending on where this truck is...Kane has a house in Tennesee and in Georgia...the lift law in Tennessee is 31" and this truck is way higher than that. 

 

Kane has had a big month, scoring three AMA awards, getting married to his long time love and announcing a big headlining tour - the Live Forever Tour - that kicks off January 10th.

New Jon Pardi video debuts on...ESPN?!

Jon Pardi debuted his new video for "Night Shift" on ESPN as the lead-in to last weekend's Texas Tech at TCU college football game.  In the new video for the “working man’s love song,” Pardi drives a semi-truck into downtown Nashville, swapping shifts with a trucker before he continues on to perform with his band on the back of the semi-tractor trailer.

Not a bad marketing idea for Pardi since “Night Shift” will be heard during night games college football telecasts on ESPN networks throughout the rest of the season.
“College football is my favorite sport, so being able to incorporate that with my music is really cool. Football fans are big country music fans, and they are the ones coming out to the shows and standing in the rain, crowd surfing or just waiting to get into the concert to have fun! This is a big debut and a big game, especially around Texas and it’s something that I’ll never forget,” says Pardi. Jon Pardi is coming to Sonoma County.  He'll be performing live in Sonoma County this fall at Graton Resort & Casino November 2, in Rohnert Park.  The Pardi show has been sold out for weeks.

Good guy Brad Paisley gives back

Brad Paisley and his wife Kimberly are working with Belmont University to open a "modern food pantry" in Nashville. They're calling it The Store.  It will have fresh and nonperishable groceries for people in need.  It is a new kind of food bank.  “This is a grocery store with dignity for people who have fallen on hard times,” said Paisley, president of The Store’s board of trustees.  It's designed to look and works like a free grocery store. Kimberly said, "Ultimately we want to do job training for employees and education about nutrition, so people are making healthy choices." 
 
After taking their young sons to volunteer at the similarly organized Unity Shoppe in Santa Barbara, Brad and his wife got the idea that they could launch the same concept in Nashville.  Paisley explained it was near Thanksgiving and his wife thought their children were acting spoiled, so they brought their kids to the store to show them that there were many people in the world living with much less. What an awesome idea. This is exactly why Brad Paisley is so well liked in the music business. 
 
In addition to groceries, The Store also plans to set up a toy aisle over the holidays. Throughout the year, they will accept donations of new, unopened toys. At Christmas, families can shop from those items to ensure children receive the toys on their wishlist.  The Paisley’s have a property picked out and hope to break ground in 2019 on this idea. Here's the website http://www.thestore.org/

Dylan Scott covers Dan + Shay

New Country artist Dylan Scott has been having a whirlwind year in the first half of 2018.  A couple of big tours, including one with Justin Moore, has Dylan hitting the road about four days a week.  As for the off days, Dylan has been happy to just spend time at home with his eight month old son, Beckett, and his wife Blair.  Scott told "Taste Of Country" recently, “This year I had my first Father’s Day and it was just so special." 

Meanwhile new music is slowly being released from Scott and the Lousiana native is always looking for new ways to add a surpise into his setlist.  No word on whether this cover of Dan + Shay's "Speechless" will make it to a future show, but it sounds pretty good.

Hit the "Bullseye" with this drink recipe

Yes, Labor Day is getting closer on your calendar and it's weeks away from fall football, but we're not ready to let go of Summer yet!  Thanks to our Bull Bartender's crisp new drink idea, we can keep the summer spirit going for awhile longer.


Peaches in Sonoma County are peaking in their juicy potential so the timing on this new offering is perfect.  Feel free to steal our patio cooler concoction below and try it at your next get together.

 

Grilled Peach Beer Sangria

INGREDIENTS

    2 firm but ripe peaches sliced
    ¼ cup golden rum
    2 tablespoons brown sugar
    2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice about 1 large lemon
    1 1/3 cups peach nectar or peach juice
    22 oz Belgian Tripel Beer
    2 cups sliced frozen peaches

  1. Preheat the grill to medium high. Grill the peaches on each side until grill marks appear, about 5 minutes. Remove from grill and refrigerate until chilled (can be done 24 hours in advance).
  2. Add the rum, brown sugar, and lemon juice to a serving pitcher. Stir until brown sugar has dissolved.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients along with the grilled peaches. Serve immediately.

Tip: Frozen peaches will keep the sangria cold without watering it down. Enjoy!

Kenny Chesney Hotter Than Summer

SATURDAY night (8/11) was another evening of record-breaking attendance for BLUE CHAIR/WARNER BROS./WEA artist KENNY CHESNEY and his "2018 TRIP AROUND THE SUN TOUR." This time, Chesney was closer to home, as 55,182 fans packed NASHVILLE's NISSAN STADIUM for more than two hours of familiar and new hits. Between ACM and CMA honors, Chesney is an eight-time Entertainer Of The Year trophy winner and he showed why, taking full command of a packed stadium crowd from the start with an extended, blazing rendition of "Beer In Mexico" Drenched in sweat, but seemingly never winded, Chesney covered every possible square inch of a super-sized and extended stage on a hot Summer night. Chesney was joined mid-set by REVIVER RECORDS' DAVID LEE MURPHY, who teamed for their recent #1 single "Everything's Gonna be Alright."
