Scott remembers those days when TV and radio stations would actually sign off the air. They would play the Star Spangled Banner twice a day - when signing on and when signing off. Scott even did that early in his career at radio stations. Stations did it not because it was an FCC requirement - they did it because it seemed the right thing to do.
Stations don't sign on and off anymore. Most are licensed to operate 24-hours a day. So Scott & Sadie want to play the Star Spangled Banner once a day, because it doesn't get that airplay anymore, and just because it seems the right thing to do.
Here's a great way to honor the brave men and women who have served and are serving this great nation! Each weekday, Scott & Sadie will dedicate the pledge AND our entire show to a brave soldier - but you have to let us know about them!
Just send us an e-mail and let us know who you would like to dedicate the national anthem to.
Weekday mornings from 5:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.

On Veterans Day we ask ourselves why we only celebrate our veterans ONE DAY a year. We understand the significance of 11/11, still, it only seems appropriate to us that we honor the brave men and women who have or who are serving this great nation on a daily basis! That's why we have created this simple gallery - the Gallery of Heroes - so we might set aside a tiny little piece on the internet to pay tribute and respect to those who serve.
It would bring us no greater joy than if you would send us a picture of your hero. Simply email that photo to Scott@BigCountry979.com with a brief bio of the person in the pic. Let us post their photo and draw attention to the sacrifice that they make and/or made as a soldier and to the sacrifice made by that soldier's family. It is the least we could do and it is our pleasure and honor to do so!
Check out all the pics from Saturday October 26th and a big day of fun!
Alan Jackson headlined the 5th Annual "Stars Go Blue" benefit on Wednesday (March 20th) at the Ryman Auditorium in downtown Nashville, performing for a sold-out, standing room only crowd. Craig Campbell opened the show in honor of his father who passed away from colon cancer when Craig was only 11 years old.
The event was hosted by the Colon Cancer Alliance (CCA) and all proceeds from the concert will benefit CCA's Blue Note Fund, helping patients in need.
Alan's desire to participate in the event was in response to his wife, Denise, being diagnosed in 2010; she is now cancer-free.
Alan said, "This is something we both felt strongly about. Denise asked me to sing for this, and it's nice to have your music do something and use your music to help a cause like this."
After the show, it was announced that $120,000 was raised and would be able to help over 400 families with financial assistance.
