Where it all began, back in the eighties. I got a microphone from my grandparents for Christmas one year, and I couldn't put it down. I'd go up and interview everyone about what they got for Christmas...even sing. Haha
My amazing siblings. From left, Joshua, Jon-Erik, Me, and Charity.
College Days: I volunteered for about everything at 90.5 WASU in Boone, NC. The pic above is a morning show I was on where I delievered the morning dish of "The Starr Report." It stuck with me so, I decided to use it with Brian on the Y Morning Wake-Up.
Masters 2012 with my friend Ashleigh. I don't know much about golf, but I learned if you're going to The Masters, prepare yourself for quite a walk to the entrance. I've never seen so many cars in my life. It's like stepping into another world through those gates. Stunningly beautiful.
First Celebrity Encounter: I was doing select interviews for a country station during Merlefest in Wilkesboro, NC. I happened to look up and saw that handsome face. Panic set in immediately, I was like, "I've got to go say hello." I was so nervous, and I kept telling myself, it's just Dierks Bentley, calm down...then he put his arm around me for the pic, I was like, "Oh Lord, don't let me faint."
Co-hosting at the American Cancer Society's Bachelor Auction back in June. The event brought in over $10,000 that evening.
With Dr. Noah Drake, Rick Springfield back in June 2012. He's one of my favs from the 80's. Mom told me, "Courtney, I can still remember you singing along to his songs from the backseat of the car."
I want to be a good cook like my mom, and grandmothers. Everything they fix is always a hit! As for me, well, that's a different story. Normally, I get a little help from Chef Boyardee and Sara Lee, but I fired them for the week. ;)
This year for Thanksgiving, my mom has asked me to bring something since she's expecting a huge crowd at the table. So, I'm testing out recipes this week submitted by listeners. I asked for fail-proof, and you delivered.
