One of my favorite aspects of being involved in country music and country radio for over 30 years now is the fact that my personal beliefs mirror those of most of the artists that we play here on WYRK. So many of the country artists that we feature on WYRK have similar values to those I hold dear. The majority of country singers you hear on WYRK believe in God, family values, hunting and fishing and the 2nd. Amendment. Probably more than 50 percent of the country artists I have met and hung out with belong the NRA. As a sportsman and country music enthusiast, I take a lot of comfort in that. These are the folks that I have the most in common with. I can't even begin to tell you about the many times I have discussed deer hunting and firearms with Miranda Lambert, Blake Shelton, Craig Morgan, Luke Bryan, James Wesley, John Anderson, Justin Moore and many, many more.

Congratulations to country singer Colt Ford who was recently named as NRA Country's Arist of the Month for the month of December. Colt recently visted the NRA's headquarters and shared his thoughts on receiving the special honor.
