Following in the footsteps of Gary Allan, Keith Urban, Chris Young and other top singer/songwriters, Scotty McCreery was voted “Country Music’s Hottest Bachelor of 2016” by the readers of NASH Country Weekly Magazine, as revealed in their April 25, 2016 issue, on-stands now. This announcement follows on the heels of the 22-year old North Carolina native being named the magazine’s “Sexiest Man in Country Music” last November.
With the recent announcement that NASH Country Weekly will be relaunching as the digital-only NASH Country Daily in the coming months, this makes McCreery the print magazine’s final “Hottest Bachelor.”
“Have mercy!” said a stunned McCreery. “I can’t decide if I’m still sunburned from being out on the beach earlier this week or if I’m blushing. While I don’t know that I agree with the title, it is nice to be thought of in this way. I sure appreciate the support of my fans andNASH Country Weekly.”
The 2016 list of NASH Country Weekly’s “10 Hottest Bachelors” are: 1) Scotty McCreery, 2) Chris Young, 3) Gary Allan, 4) Dwight Yoakam, 5) Blake Shelton, 6) Kip Moore, 7) Sam Hunt, 8) Kenny Chesney, 9) Chuck Wicks, and 10) Brett Eldredge.
McCreery, who stole the show at last week’s “American Idol” series finale with his stunning rendition of his hero Garth Brooks’ hit song “Papa Loved Mama,” is gearing up for the May 3 release of his first book, Go Big or Go Home: The Journey Toward the Dream and the accompanying 14-city book tour.

But Consumers Will Have to Ignore the Excitement as they will just Keep on Paying the New Inflated Prices
The South African currency went into a hole over the past 4 months. This weak showing of the South African Rand has seen prices right across the board rise tremendously, from basic foods to luxury commodities. Now the good news is out we have recovered and everything is back to normal again as it was back in December 2015.
By 09:00 on Tuesday, the rand was trading at R14.38/$, which was last seen on December 6 – three days before President Jacob Zuma fired the respected finance minister Nhlanhla Nene, which sent the rand and markets tumbling to historic lows- News24
So what now does that mean when I go back to Pick ‘n Pay or Checkers my 6 Cokes for the week will cost R39,99 again and not R49,99 and my breakfast R76 and not R89? and so on and on and on. The answer is very simple NO. When I go do my next shopping trip with my Wife I am very sure with the Rand back in a better position I will see no reduction in prices anywhere I go, no matter how hard I look I am convinced I will not see any anywhere.
However, companies will show higher profits and share holders will be ecstatic as they make money out of nothing. For they successfully increased their prices when the Rand was in a bad shape, and so will they successfully keep those high prices now that the Rand is in a good shape.
And so the ……. get…… and the ……. get ……….. Nothing ever changes, but surely there must be an end to it somehow, someway , someday, someplace?
Toby Keith is calling it “Lucky 13,” but exactly who stands to benefit from the weekend’s good fortune is likely open to debate. The 13th Annual Toby Keith & Friends Golf Classic will be held June 3-4 at Belmar Golf Club and Riverwind Casino in Norman, Oklahoma.
From the opening night “Denim & Diamonds” gala and its always stunning auction items, to surprise musical performances, to Saturday’s twin shotgun start golfing and prizes, to an all around great time for approximately 750 attendees, to – last but definitely foremost – significant funds raised to further the good work of The Toby Keith Foundation, there’s a lot of good packed into the event’s two days.
“Driving back and forth, sometimes five days a week, is too much on anyone let alone a sick two-year-old,” says Kingfisher, OK resident Shannon Bollenbach, whose family has called the Foundation-supported OK Kids Korral home for the last 18 months. “The staff and volunteers have been amazing. Jase, along with myself and family, have grown to love these people. The other families that have been here become your family … they understand our hurt, our constant sadness, our heartaches, along with our joy, happiness and good days. Thank you to everyone [who] has made this journey easier on us [and has] loved my baby along the way.”
At the auction, last year’s highest bid item is back: A week for five couples at Toby Keith’s Cabo beach house. Other big ticket live auction offerings include a stay at Wyoming’s Brush Creek Resort, two weeklong tickets to all four of golf’s majors plus The Players, African Safari, an autographed Eagles guitar and an “Outlaw” Tribute Concert poster celebrating the music of Waylon Jennings signed by event performers including Keith, Willie Nelson, Lee Ann Womack, Eric Church, Alison Krauss, Jessi Colter, Jamey Johnson, Chris Stapleton and Shooter Jennings.
Silent auction items include signed memorabilia from Willie Nelson, Peyton Manning, Eli Manning, Tiger Woods, Dick Butkus, Derek Jeter, Phil Mickelson and Brett Favre.
Concert tickets will be up for bid from Miranda Lambert, Jason Aldean, George Lopez and Jimmy Buffett. Other offerings include his-and-her Apple watches and four tickets to the 2017 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. Mobile bidding will be available to attendees for the first time through a partnership with GiveSmart.
Saturday’s day of golf will again include the Built Ford Tough Shootout, where the winner will drive off with a new truck.

Contentment-training is a challenging process; it is learned through enduring a wide range of difficulties.
You thought you were fairly advanced in this training, but then the circumstances in your life got harder. On some days you are able to cope well with your hardships. On other days you just want out! I am here to help you with your other days.Begin by acknowledging how frustrated and upset you are feeling. Pour out your heart to Me! Simply releasing your pent-up feelings does you a world of good. Knowing that I hear and understand encourages you even more. Ask Me also to increase your awareness of My Presence with you. Continue talking to Me and listening in the depths of your spirit for my response. Cling to helpful scriptures; bathe your mind and heart in them. Finally, sing praises to Me. This will lift your spirits like nothing else.
It is good to sing praises to My Name; to declare My loving kindness in the morning, and My faithfulness every night.I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. -Philippians 4:12
Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge. -Psalm 62:8
It is good to give thanks to the Lord, and to sing praises to Your name, O Most High
to declare Your lovingkindness in the morning, and Your faithfulness every night. -Psalm 92:1-2 nkjv
