I was the CMA Large Market Broadcast personality of the Year in 2000, and the Country Radio Broadcasters Large Market Broadcast personality of the Year in 2001. I grew up on a horse farm in Atlanta, Georgia! My parents and Sister own and operate Ward Stables located north of Atlanta, one of the top American Saddlebred Training facilities in the Southeast! Graduated from Colonial Hills Christian High School in 1986, Jefferson State College in 1990, and Auburn University in 1992. I'm a huge Atlanta Braves fan, and adopted the Pittsburgh Steelers as my Pro football team when I got married. I began my radio career while attending college, with my first job in radio as a sportscaster at Auburn University. (I bleed Orange and Blue! Go Tigers!)
I spend my free time playing with my Grandson Rydan, and hanging out with my husband whenever we aren't both working. I enjoy family & friends, Caribbean vacations as often as possible. Racing & horses. Christian faith. I love to help others through volunteerism:
1) Victory Junction Camp
2) Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure
3) March of Dimes
4) Make-a-Wish foundation
5) American Red Cross
6) Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
7) Second Harvest Food Bank
8) Ronald McDonald House
9) Summit Church
Here's a list of the top 10 fun facts you didn't know about Phil, Miss Kay, Uncle Si, Jase, Willie, Jep and their wives:
1. Jase, Willie and Jep actually have a fourth brother, Al. He's the oldest of the bunch, and may make a special appearance in the upcoming fourth season of the show.
2. Miss Kay's favorite meal to make is fried frogs, and apparently there are two ways to cook them. Jase recommends soaking them in lemon juice first, and Miss Kay says you can fry them or sauté them in butter to make them extra delicious.
3. Phil Robertson recently ran into his old football friend, Terry Bradshaw, at the airport. When the two men attended Louisiana Tech University, Robertson played first string quarterback ahead of Bradshaw.
4. Contrary to popular belief, the tea Uncle Si always drinks is unsweetened.
5. The "Duck Dynasty" clan appeared in Darius Rucker's "Wagon Wheel" music video, a remake of the popular Old Crow Medicine Show song.
6. Jase, Willie and Jep's wives actually do love their husband's beards, and prefer them to the "preppy look" the men used to have.
7. In addition to his huge truck seen on the show, Willie drives a camouflage BMW.
8. Miss Kay isn't the only "Miss" of the family. Everyone calls the women of the show by their first names, and adds "Miss" at the beginning. It's the proper Southern thing to do.
9. The Duck Commander warehouse actually has a store in it. People travel from all over to see the Robertsons, and sometimes hundreds of people are lined up outside at a time. The family claims to know which state is having Spring Break based on all the license plates in the parking lot.
10. Uncle Si's favorite way to eat dove is with cream cheese, jalapenos and wrapped in bacon, which is probably another Miss Kay specialty.
