  • Ask MomRN Show: Country Music Superstar Toby Keith

    in Family


    The Schooner Fall Golf Classic to raise Funds for Country Music star Toby Keith’s OK Korral for pediatric cancer patients took place this past weekend at the Belmar Golf Club in Norman, OK.

    Presented by Swingdish, The Schooner Golf Classic included 12 teams of collegiate women golfers who were invited from schools around the county to participate in the tournament and to visit the children at the OK Korral.

    The Toby Keith Foundation has been helping children with cancer since 2006 and continues its services through partnerships with hospitals, caregivers, foundations and civic groups.

    On Friday night, the ladies attended a Welcome Party at the private home of Toby and his wife Tricia, (who is the designer of the Swingdish apparel, along with daughters, Krystal and Shelley) with performances by “Supersonic Love Club,” karaoke and more. One senior athlete from each school was selected to walk in a runway fashion show to showcase the stylish designs from Swingdish.

    I had the fun opportunity to sit down with Toby and his daughter, Krystal Keith, on Friday morning, September 18th to talk about the OK Kids Korral, the benefit golf tournament, and the new Swingdish women's golf apparel line.

    We'll also be talking about healthy hydration tips for Fall, how to get your kids to eat healthy this Fall, home decor tips for this Fall season, teen driving safety, eyesight and its impact on learning success, and a new technology to help kids living with diabetes. Today's show is packed full of great guests!

    Tune in on Mondays at 1 pm ET for practical advice for raising a happy, healthy family from MomRN and her guests!

    On Air With D (Special Guest: Mimi Faust, Bahja, and Tiara Thomas)

    in Music

    Mimi Faust has been charming the audiences of VH-1’s highest ranking reality TV show Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta for four seasons. Mimi’s confidence, style and wit is what keeps the viewers coming back for more, as she tries to balance both motherhood and new business ventures. Mimi is currently dabbling in interior designing/ remodeling homes and has hopes of expanding her expertise into a stylish, yet affordable home goods line. In addition to Mimi’s current obligations she has ventured into the hair business with her new line, The Maya Collection, which features a variety of wigs and hair extensions. When Mimi’s not filming she is dedicated to being a loving and devoted mother to her daughter Eva, launching her first book and supporting causes close to her heart.

    A quick click online yields this succinct definition of the word original: “Not dependent on other people’s ideas; inventive and unusual.” For those seeking the musical equivalent of that, you need look no further than Tiara Thomas. Thomas first vaulted into national consciousness in 2013 when she co-wrote, co-produced and appeared on Wale’s hit single “Bad.” Produced by Division 1 chief and Grammy Award-winning songwriter/producer Rico Love, the feel-good “One Night” relates a story about woman who knows exactly what she wants. As Thomas sings and raps emphatically against a throbbing beat, “… All girls ain’t after your money / All girls ain’t even looking for love / And sometimes good girls get lonely / They want something money can’t buy / Don’t want the rest of your life / Just one night.”

    in Music

    After writing hits for such artists as Patti LaBelle, Tom Jones, Chante Moore and Stephanie Mills, Carol Duboc began sharing her own musical heart in a more powerful and intimate way, launching her career as a contemporary jazz artist. Since the 2001 release of her critically-acclaimed debut, “With All That I Am,” the multi-talented vocalist, songwriter and producer has carved out a unique niche sharing deeply-felt original songs that are all at once beautifully stylish and lyrically direct and insightful. Former Los Angeles Times jazz critic Don Heckman captured the sultry singer’s magical essence perfectly when he wrote, “The keenly imaginative (Duboc) is one of the most interesting and dynamic jazz singers of her generation.” 

    “Colored Glasses,” Duboc’s latest full-length Gold Note Music recording, is the perfect follow-up to her revealing and very personal 2013 release, “Smile,” whose single “Elephant” rose to No. 2 on the Groove Jazz Music chart and No. 28 on the Billboard tally. While the songs on “Smile” were inspired by the steep challenges and wonderful joys of keeping a long-term relationship afloat, “Colored Glasses” expands the emotional landscape to encompass the aftermath of a difficult breakup, where the heart knows it must let go and move on, but is continually drawn back to the person it can’t stop loving. Written during an intense period of adjustment during which Duboc assumed the role of a single parent to her eight year-old daughter, the songs on the ten-track collection reflect on all the residual emotions inherent in such a transition. They’re about hopes and dreams fostered and dashed, lush fantasies tempered by sobering realities and moments of clarity amidst whirlwinds of doubt.

    The Author's Talk Show with Staci Layne Wilson and Darren Gordon Smith

    in Books

    Staci Layne Wilson is known for writing and directing movies (Fetish Factory, Good Family Times), as well as authoring several books (Dark Lullaby, 50 Years of Ghost Movies). Darren Gordon Smith is a filmmaker (Repo! The Genetic Opera), wordsmith (Blurt: Curses & Verses, Seward’s Fall), and musician (The Livermores).

    The two longtime friends and sometime collaborators (short film: The Night Plays Tricks, inspired by the music of Bob Dylan) have combined their talents to present a one-of-a-kind, amplifiers-to-11 anthology of short stories that’s as unsettling as it is hilarious.

    Here’s some advance word on the book, Sex, Death, Rock N Roll:

    “Fiery and fevered scribes Staci Layne Wilson and Darren Smith have delivered an anthology book devoted to rock n roll fuelled short stories which read as lyrical as the songs and music they pay tribute to. With an authentic and uncompromising dedication to musicians from decades past, Wilson and Smith deliver a highly energetic and equally nuanced set of stylish tales of obsession, cynicism, neurosis and rage – all driven by a street sensibility and catapulting from the varied voices of the angry outsider. Not to be missed!” – Lee Gambin, Author ‘We Can Be Who We Are: Movie Musicals From the 70s’

    “This book shreds!” Lisa S. Johnson, Photographer/Author ‘108 Rock Star Guitars’

    “Tales of the fantastic blended with the razor kiss of rock n roll.” – Tristan Risk, Burlesque Icon ‘Little Miss Risk’

    “With back stories like these – Wilson’s dad is a rockstar (The Ventures), Smith is a musician (Repo! The Genetic Opera) - their stories have to be great. And they are!” Bobby Smith, Author ‘Bowie Bible’

    Sex, Drug, Rock N Roll is now for sale in paperback and via Amazon Kindle.
