  • Trace... Shy? Really?

    Posted by Lee Peek

    Trace and BlakeTrace Adkins is a man of few words and is shy by nature. He tells AOL's The Boot, "[In a crowd] I tend to hide in a corner. And I think sometimes...that it's been misinterpreted, I think, as me being standoffish or antisocial, or whatever. What people don't understand, it's just plain old shyness. There's nothing egotistical or sinister behind it." Trace points out, "Alan Jackson is the same way. People think that Alan is kind of standoffish, but I know Alan. He's painfully shy."

    Adkins' new song with buddy Blake Shelton, "Hillbilly Bone," is about two good ol' country boys mingling in an upscale restaurant with high society. So, does Trace ever feel inferior in that kind of high society crowd? He shares, "I don't feel inferior. I feel out of place and uncomfortable a lot of times. I never feel inferior. I may internally ask the question, "What are you doing here? It's not your gig. It's not where you should be."

    CarrieCarrie Underwood has been vacationing at the Cove Atlantis resort in the Bahamas. Over the weekend she wrote on her official fan site, "Just thought I'd write and make you all jealous by telling you about the wonderful time I'm having in the Bahamas! It was a breezy 80 something outside and the sun was shining bright... I managed to get a nice little bronzy color today. I'm actually a wee bit burned, but it doesn't hurt. I'll have to break out the SPF tomorrow...This is the best vacation I have been on in a long time."

    Who knew she had a tattoo there? Huh... ~Lee

  • Tiger Jokes

    Posted by Lee Peek


    Had enough Tiger jokes yet? NO!?!?! (Really?)

    Here are some Lee & Nikki came up with in stuido today...

    When asked how many times she struck the back window of Tiger's SUV, his wife said- I can't remember- just put me down for a 4.

    Tiger Woods is so rich that he owns lots of expensive cars. Now he has a hole in one.

    What's the difference between a car and a golf ball? Tiger can drive a ball 400 yards.

    Tiger Woods wasn't seriously injured in the crash, but he's still below par.

    What were Tiger Woods and his wife doing out at 2.30 in the morning? They went clubbing

    Tiger Woods crashed into a fire hydrant and a tree. He couldn't decide between a wood and an iron.

    If you laughed at any of these, your just wrong... Just sayin'.
