Chadwick Benefield

Chad here! After 9 years of being one half of The WBKR Waking Crew, I am now one half of the all-new CB Radio Show here on WBKR! Our show runs 6a-9am CST Monday through Friday and I also co-host The BKR's Dozen Countdown with Dave Spencer each Saturday morning at 8am. In addition to flapping my lips on the air, I emcee a variety of events all over the state of Kentucky. I emcee charity functions, beauty pageants and dance competitions. I love country music. In fact, I love all kids of music. I listen to everything from Justin Moore to Katy Perry to Sam Smith to David Nail to Kings of Leon to Garth Brooks to Kelly Clarkson to J Hud and Pitbull. I love tennis, running, and reality television. When I am not working I am likely on the sectional watching The Blacklist, Project Runway, The Biggest Loser, American Horror Story, and pretty much anything on The Tennis Channel or ESPN. I vacation . . . a lot! I love Mexico and any place I can get to on a cruise ship.

The Worst Remake of “Freebird” Ever [Video]

Quiz!  What's the first song someone shouts out if the lead singer of a band asks for requests?  Yep!  "Freebird."  Happens everytime, without fail.  And, thankfully, not everyone gives into the temptation to cover one of the most iconic songs in the history of recorded music.  But, these folks did.  Remember the short-lived 80's group Will To Power?  They actually went a step further and recorded a version of "Freebird."  And, quite honestly, it may be the worst version of that song EVER!  (Of course, I say that and I actually bought their debut album on cassette.  Don't judge me!!)   So, what do you say?  Why don't we relive it?  LOL!  I found the video on YouTube . . .
