Daisy Mallory is a song lover, an only child, and originally from Cave Creek, Arizona. Music has been her passion for as long as she can remember. Writing is in her blood and singing is in her bones. When she picked up the guitar at age 9, her love for music and writing collided. After 4 months of learning cover songs, she began to write my own.
She's done some cool things in her time! From singing with Reba and Kris Kristofferson to Muhammad Ali himself to opening for Brad Paisley, Lee Ann Womack, and Lee Brice. She's taken part in photo and video shoots with artists such as The Band Perry, Rascal Flatts, Josh Turner, Brantley Gilbert, Randy Houser, and Billy Currington. She was endorsed by McPherson Guitars in July of 2011. She's truly living and breathing music and couldn’t be more thankful to be doing what I love each day!
Be on the lookout for the brand new EP, "This Side of Town" available on iTunes.

If You are not willing to lose you are not ready to win. Life is not easy and success is a journey.
We few people are really ready to do everything that is necessary to win. The will and the level of believe and faith needed to really win at anything is huge. No I am not talking about blindly and mindless following anyone. We are talking about having real belief and the drive to really win and reach your goals.
It always amazes me how many people say that they walk to win yet do so little to make that success come to reality.
What is really improtant to you. What are you really willing to do to live your dreams. If you know that you could lose what would you do? Family, Business, Career, Relationship, Friendship, Happiness and Real Wealth.

Parents who advocate for education reform may sometimes find themselves at odds with school administrators, some of whom parent activists may be blaming for low student academic performance. When a parent dares to speak out against what the parent believes are harmful policies or practices in the school, does that parent and that parent's child get targeted for retaliation by school officials. Bogan High School LSC Parent Leader Reva Brown shares her story and raises questions about the rights of parents to stand up to school officials when they believe their children are being deliberately denied a good education.
Join us this week for an interview with fan favorite Jade Harlow. Jade is no stranger to to Daytime television and landed her first Daytime role on the NBC Soap Opera Passions playing Jessica Bennett when she was still in high school. She would later go on to act in movies and also join the hit online web series The Bay The Series as Lianna Ramos. Jade also portrayed the popular and well recieved Sheryl Connors on Days of Our Lives earlier this year and many fans were disappointed to see Sheryl abruptly exit Salem.
We look forward to catching up with Jade and hope you can join us as we chat with Jade about all things Daytime television, acting, producing and more.
We have seen a lot of chatter on the Internet today about the Minnesota Timberwolves' efforts to trade Kevin Love.
The Cleveland Cavaliers seems to be offering the most, with a package built around Andrew Wiggins and Anthony Bennett -- the two most recent overall No. 1 picks. Cleveland also holds the rights to three 2015 first-round draft picks, their own, the Grizzlies' and the Heat's. If they lump two of those into their package, they will win the Love sweepstakes, IMHO.
Word has leaked out that Chicago and Denver are also in the running, and we have known for weeks that Golden State's refusal to part with Klay Thompson has been a dealbreaker.
So when is this deal going to go down?
Sooner rather than later is what I said in this interview with Dan Bickley on KTAR 98.7 Sports in Phoenix.
