A New Year’s Resolution…To Say, “I’m Sorry” [VIDEO]

What are the two hardest words to say? For me, and perhaps for you it’s “I’m Sorry”. I have always believed that sometimes you need to go back before you can move forward. As we say hello to a new year maybe we all need to reflect on 2011 before we work on those resolutions for 2012. For me, it’s who did I hurt or upset with my words or actions…or inaction?

Doug Stone Is This Week’s Feature Artist On Wide Open Country

If you were listening to country music in the 90's, then you must remember Doug Stone. Born Douglas Jackson Brooks, he changed his name in the late 80's to Doug Stone so he would not be confused with Garth Brooks and Kix Brooks.  He made his debut on the Billboard Country Singles chart back in 1990 with his tune, "I'd Be Better Off In A Pine Box". He went on to have a number of hits throughout the 90's. His career began to stall a bit after he suffered a heart attack and stroke in the late 1990's. He also survived a plane crash in 1999 in Chicago. His troubles did not end there. In 2005, he was sentenced to six months in jail for failure to pay alimony and child support. He was also arrested in 2009 for a domestic dispute involving his 22 year old son.
