Roger grew up on a Quarter Horse and Produce Farm in Ashtabula, Ohio (North East Corner) where his childhood classmates would cheer for summer vacation while he would whimper knowing his father would put him to work all summer long. So to avoid a life full of heavy lifting Roger decidied to start his career in Country Radio.
Along with his career, Roger is married a wonderful woman named Ruby, who still loves him through all his country boy "issues". When they married they combined their two families to make a home full of six kids, Zachary, Kleora, Heather, Jeremiah, Brandon and Christian.
When you don't hear Roger on 99.9 Kiss Country you'll find him playing out in the backyard with his kids as they are all very active in sports, so much so his youngest son sleeps with a baseball bat instead of a teddy bear.

Meanwhile Adam Levine still has an arsenal of contestants that includes Will Champlin, James Wolpert and Tessanne Chin. But Blake isn't the only coach down to one contestant, Christina only has one left on the stage too. That would be Jacquie Lee.
So as Blake tweeted earlier we should all get on the Cole train and vote for him...if Cole is sent home tonight then Blake will be standing on the side lines with CeeLo who no longer has a dog in that fight.
The voice kicks off tonight on NBC at 8pm.

Trace Adkins and Danica Patrick are getting ready to rock out the American Country Awards tonight in Las Vegas. So what is it like behind the scenes at the ACAs? Watch some of the behind the scenes footage below.
I don't think Carrie Underwood knew that her performance on the Sound of Music could be so misinterupted. But leave it up to Saturday Night Live to take it to a whole new level.
So last night I ventured out passed the Asheville Airport to Shadrack's CHRISTmas Wonderland at the WNC Ag Center. It is one of the best displays I have ever seen. The lights set to music were awesome! But the best part is the whole display, which takes about 30 minutes to drive through, is how it highlights the true reason for the season, the birth of our Savior and Lord Jesus Christ.
If you get a chance grab up your kids and even the in-laws and take them out tonight to Shadrack's CHRISTmas Wonderland. It's great to receive and give gifts but there is a lot to be said for spending time together as a family.
Oh yeah...if you'd like to win your car pass listen this afternoon starting at 3pm. I'll be setting you up sometime before 7pm. The studio number is 1-800-303-KISS.
So over Thanksgiving Day Weekend I went out to a few spots with Ruby in North East Ohio to hang out with our friends. That is when I decided as a gender men need to really work on their approach because you all are embaressing us.
As Ruby chatted with one of her girlfriends I watch a young stud walk up to a girl at the bar and actually say, "Hey...are you a runner?" When she said, "no" he said, "Well you have been running through my mind all night."
Seriously? That line still works? Where did you hear that one...from your grandpa? But lets face it guys we use some really dumb lines to try and talk to women. Plus when we talk to a lady in her profession it always turns south. We can always turn any term used in their careers to a suggestive one. Here are some of the ones I have honestly heard.
Secretary: Oh, I'll show you 350 words per minute.
Doctor: Oh, I need my tempature taken.
Nurse: (The classic) HEEELLLOOO Nurse.
Lawyer: Oh, you can deliberate with me all day.
Teacher: Can you teach me my ABCs and 123s?
Mechanic: I'll rotate those tires for ya. - I'll change your oil.
Those are just a few of the lines I've heard over the years. Now before you laugh too hard ladies be honest with us. If Luke Bryan walked up and used one of those lines on ya...you'd be all over that conversation like a monkey on a coconut.
So this brings me back to the guy at the bar with the cheesy pick up line...the girl giggled and actually started to talk to him....mainly because he was dressed and groomed well and had confidence.
However, guys please try a new line that doesn't leave women laughing at all of us after your relationship ends. Start off with this dignified and well thought out line....it's really very simple.....try, "Hello."
