This morning at 10 AM CT Garth's Chicagoconcert September 4 at Allstate Arena goes on sale and the most you can buy at a time are 6. To increase your chances of getting them, set up an account now with Ticketmaster, then sign in and stay that way until tickets go on sale. When that happens search 'Best Available' to save you time and get you tickets. More shows could very well be added once this one sells out as his concert's the only event there for a three-week period, so it could easily turn into a Garth mini-residency.

Kenny Chesney will co-direct a football documentary for ESPN, 'The Believer' about South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier. It airs on the SEC Network Aug 27.

Steve Spurrier will take his turn in ESPN and the SEC Network's "SEC Storied" series at 8 p.m. on Aug. 27 in a documentary titled, "The Believer." The film covers Spurrier's career as a player and coach, featuring interviews with his former players and his family, and addresses why and how Spurrier became Spurrier.

"It was a documentary they wanted to put together," Spurrier said on Tuesday at SEC Media Days. "They spent a lot of time with my family, wife, kids, grandkids and so forth, and a lot of former players. So, hopefully, it will turn out OK."

The trailer was released on Wednesday, a 90-second burst of Spurrier playing and coaching at Florida, Duke and South Carolina. The visor-tossing, the grin and the trophies are all well represented.

ESPN and the SEC had been discussing a Spurrier film, and once ESPN's acclaimed "30 For 30" series began, it gained traction. A country music star provided an assist.

"There had been some talk of doing a Spurrier documentary, and when Kenny got involved, it kind of just fell together," said Andy Billman, a producer of ESPN Films.

Kenny Chesney and Spurrier have been friends since 2007, when Chesney was performing at Colonial Life Arena and invited Spurrier on stage. Chesney, a football fan and longtime supporter of Tennessee, received a No. 7 USC jersey from Spurrier when Chesney played Williams-Brice Stadium in 2013 (No. 7 not for Jadeveon Clowney, but because it was Chesney's number in high school).

Chesney, who also helped with a 2011 film called "The Boys of Fall" about football players across all levels, pitched his support as co-executive producer and the idea took off. "SEC Storied" covered topics such as Herschel Walker and "The Play That Changed College Football," a recap of the 1992 SEC Championship Game in which Spurrier and his Gators were well represented, and decided to include Spurrier's own film in its next wave.

So a friend of mine posted on Facebook "Why do Giraffe's have horns?" And my first response was "Giraffes have horns? What?" And then I looked at a picture of a Giraffe... and they do! kinda... Here is another picture of a Giraffe head as a refresher.

So those things on its head kind of look almost like horns! And they almost kind of are horns! I went to the internet and Wikipedia told me they are called Ossicones and are actually more like stubby little antlers than horns. Giraffes don't use them for anything anymore, but they aren't hurting anything either so they just are just there... being Ossicones. But the ancestors of Giraffes did have crazy horned antlers as this skeleton shows

Then somewhere down the line they decided leaves looked more delicious than grass so they went the long neck route and the antlers went the way of slap bracelets and pet rocks. So if you ever thought about Giraffes as long-necked horses... they are actually just long-necked deer.

And that is your fun fact about Giraffes

P.S. I got all these photos from the Giraffe Wikipedia page which you should definitely check out if for whatever reason you want to learn more about giraffes... but the last photo on the page talks about giraffes being exported all over the world in the olden times and they have a drawing of a Giraffe during the Ming Dynasty in China and it made me chuckle:

that guy is like "Dude, what is this?" He is probably even wondering why the thing has horns... but you and I both know they aren't horns... they are ossicones.

Garth Set to Become Best Selling Artist of all Time

When Garth starts selling his music digitally, maybe even as early as this week, he'll still set records even tho he's not using iTunes. A half a million downloads of his 18-disc catalog will blow him past Elvis so he'll likely become the best-selling solo act in history. Then he'll take on The Beatles; he's at 134 million in sales, they're at 177 million. If he takes them, Garth will become the best selling artist of all time! I hear his new single's out Monday.

No one can prepare you. We got lots of well wishes when we found out we were going to be grandparents. Everyone said grandkids would change our lives, that we would love it, that it is better than being a parent! And we tucked those comments away and waited for our babies to be born.

We are two months into this adventure of being grandparents and I have to say, it has been a real "game changer" for us. We had Gwendolyn and Gabriel together for the first time last week. Oh the joy! The cuteness! And the deep, deep happiness that comes from having grandbabies.

We had a lovely dinner at the Barn Door with the whole family. The babies were so quiet through the whole dinner! I don't remember my kids being that good! We went shopping and out to eat several times and those babies never cried! How is that possible? Could it be that Mike and I never let them? Could it be that we picked them up with the first squeak? Could it be that Mike and I always had a baby in our arms? Maybe…

It might not be that big of a surprise that the technical side of the radio business means you have to deal with a lot of cables, and anybody who has ever had to roll up an extension cord or something similar knows that it gets kinked up almost as soon as you start rolling it. However I learned a super secret technique of rolling cables that prevents those kinks. I learned it way back in High School when I was helping run a sound board for the local community theater by some old wise man with a big beard. It's called the "Over-under" technique and while I was trying to teach it to a coworker here at the studio I cam across a tutorial that teaches it way better than I or even Mr. Beard ever could.

With this information in hand go forth and roll cables as they were meant to be rolled!
