We’ve got new music coming out from a couple of new guys in country – one of them you get to see at the end of this month for XTU Ski Day!  Frankie Ballard will be ourguest at JFBB on the 31st.  Ski passes are only 9.25 if you buy them through our website at 925xtu.com.

The other one is the guy whose first single Chillin It is on the charts – it’s Cole Swindell – who you’ve known longer than you think.  Cole is a singer- songwriter who’s written songs that have been recorded by Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Scotty McCreery, Thomas Rhett & Chris Young.

Besides new music, this year is also bringing a new you.  Self Improvement seems to be the theme for 2014 and People Magazine is highlighting a couple books that will help you do the trick, no matter how you want to improve yourself –

The first is totally up Doc’s alley – Evolution by Joe Manganiello.  He’s an actor who’s big and muscley and you should totally want to look like him.  Besides a 6-week food and exercise plan, this book encourages you to value ambition, hustle and a healthy mindset.  – Doc, totally up your alley.

The second takes a page from the song of the year from 2013, Mama’s Broken Heart.  The book is called Not Your Mothers Rules, the new secrets for dating – this one is sure to be a hot book this year b/c it’s written by the authors of The Rules, Ellen Fein & Sherrie Schneider.

If you’re stuck inside, afraid the brave the cold like I am, click this pic of Jason Aldean & Jason Aldean to link to photos of our favorite hunky country stars as kids.  And just remember, girls, be nice to the dorky-looking ones – they may turn out to be Luke Bryan.
