Tampa Bay’s Morning Krewe

Weekdays 6:00AM - 10:00AM

Brett Eldredge called into Tampa Bay’s Morning Krewe show to catch up on lots of stuff including his latest album,  “Songs About You” that he released in June. Brett Eldredge plays our game “Songs About Him”. We asked him to name a song about reminds him about something in his life. He did a good job with his answers.

First off, we talked about The title track, “Songs About You”, that was co-written by Brett.  The song is about a breakup and trying to move on, but he can’t because of the songs he keeps hearing.    We all hear songs that sometimes can just transport you back in time to a moment with someone you used to love.

The songs that Brett sings about are: Bruce Springsteen’s “Dancing In The Dark“, Bonnie Raitt’s “I Can’t Make You Love Me” and Van Morrison’s “Brown Eyed Girl“.

 

Brett Talks About His Upcoming Christmas Show At Ryman

Next, we found out that Brett is going to do a couple of Christmas shows over Thanksgiving weekend at the Ryman. The holiday show will feature Brett performing his classic holiday hits off his two Christmas albums, Glow and Mr. Christmas.  The trio of shows at the Ryman on November 25-27.

And what about all the fancy suits he wears while on stage…we asked him to give us a little insight on what he has to pay for some of the velvet suits he wears.

Then, we asked about his dog Edgar Boogie since we don’t get to hear about him as much anymore.

Three Florida Roads Are The Worst In The Country

We are not surprised that three roads in Florida made the list of the worst in the country.  It seems like we sit in traffic way too much, and after reading this story, well, you’ll be surprised at how much time you loose sitting in traffic.

Found this story from WFLA.com and it was from a study that was done in 2021 from the Vacationer website.

We all know that I-4 is the worst.   I-4 hits its biggest slog time in the area between Beachline Expressway to Florida State Road 429, which is a loss of 74 hours per year stuck on the road and unable to go.  If you have to travel a lot around Orlando, then you probably lose even more hours, especially if you’re traveling on US-17 South.  Another road that makes the top 10.   I-95 in Miami also makes the list, the worst part being on I-95 South from I-195 to 51st Street, where you will lose 57 hours.

Well…it’s a lot in Florida, but it’s not L.A. traffic which is absolutely the worse. I-5 South in L.A comes in at #1 on the list.
