Join us this week as we welcome country rock music singer songwriter, Chris Higbee. Hailing from Dawson, PA., Chris grew up a farm boy with a musical curiosity and a diligent mother and father. That curiosity quickly became a passion that drove his dreams. “Fiddles Rock,” the first track on Higbee’s new album, tells that story and was inspired by his late father. It was co-written with Higbee’s producer Tommy Harden and Don Rollins (“It’s Five O'clock Somewhere”). Chris is a complete musical artist skilled in fiddle playing, singing, song writing, and playing various other instruments. Founder of the band Poverty Neck Hillbillies, Chris is now performing as a solo artist and currently promoting his self titled album “Chris Higbee” with singles such as, “Write to Me,” a song written to his wife who served overseas in Iraq, and was deployed immediately after exchanging wedding vows. We will talk to Chris about his upcoming schedule, get a behind the scenes look at his music, feature his latest songs, and ask him to share his message for the troops.

Returning to the show is widely celebrated broadcaster and best selling author, Laura Flanders of Grit TV to discuss the latest strategies of the Tea Party to thwart government. Laura Flanders, editor of At the Tea Party; The Wing Nuts, Whack Jobs and Whitey-Whiteness of the New Republican Right and Why We Should Take It Seriously brings us up to date from her last interview when her aforementioned book came out and the Tea Party was first on the political scene. No doubt as we go LIVE the Tea Party will probably be in the news threatening to shut down government yet again!
Laura is also the author of Blue Grit: Making Impossible, Improbably and Inspirational Political Change in America.
It is amazing how many Christians abandon their faith in favor of popular culture, the spirit of tolerance and the new sense of entitlement that is sweeping the country!
Have we forgotten that a government has been established in the Kingom of God? Is Jesus Lord or is your favorite lobbyist group?
We gonna talk about it tonight on "UNCUT"...you probably won't like what we got to say!

A taboo topic for the dinner table and social gatherings, politics both unite and divide our world. Especially every four years. BlogTalkRadio's Election coverage is vast, varied and accurate: We know it's not always the pundits with the best insight on today's political climate; our hosts represent the voice of the people, by the people, for the people. Whether you fall on the Conservative end of the spectrum, the Progressive, are moderate or somewhere on the many shades in between, you'll find plenty of commiseration with those who share your views, some of which are famous dignitaries like Michelle Obama and Kofi Annan, or famous actors, authors, news reporters, TV personalities, even comedians. The best part? If you've got something to say, you can start your own show! Go on, hop up on that soapbox and have at it – speak your mind, rant, rave and filibuster to your heart's content.
