104.3 WOMC is thrilled to welcome Jeff & Larry's Backyard BBQ to DTE Energy Music Theatre on Friday August 25, 2017. You don't want to miss this Comedy and Music Festival featuring Jeff Foxworthy, Larry the Cable Guy, the Marshall Tucker Band and Foghat!
Jeff Foxworthy: Comedian Jeff Foxworthy, one of the most respected and successful comedians in the country, has released his ninth and final solo comedy album "Have Your Loved Ones Spayed Or Neutered." The album was recorded live in Minneapolis, Minnesota and Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Foxworthy has now sold more than 13 million comedy albums and continues to be the largest selling comedy-recording artist in history. The comedian has received four Grammy nominations for his work, authored eleven best selling books and is the host of his own weekly radio show "The Foxworthy Countdown." He also co-headlined the highly successful Blue Collar Comedy Tour, which grossed more than 15 million dollars and became a feature film. The Blue Collar Comedy Tour, The Movie, which made its network television premiere on Comedy Central in November, was the most watched movie in that channel's twelve-year history and has sold more than two million copies. A sequel "Blue Collar Comedy Tour II: Rides Again" will be filmed in July and make its world premiere on Comedy Central later this year.

This summer Foxworthy will star in the series Blue Collar TV, which he also created and is executive producing. The show will premiere Thursday, July 29, 2004 on the WB network. Blue Collar TV also stars Bill Engvall and Larry the Cable Guy.

Larry The Cable Guy: Hi! My name is Larry The Cable Guy! To make a long story long, I was born in the back of an El-Camino during a Foghat concert many years ago! My mother was normal mother just like anybodys. She cooked, cleaned, kissed us goodnight, and was an Elvis impersonator on weekends! She actually looked more like the girl that played "Ralph The Carpenter" on Green Acres than Elvis, but she loved Elvis and actually sounded a little like him when she sang "Teddy Bear". She never won a contest, however one time no one else showed up and she took 3rd. My father saw action in World War II, Korea, Vietnam, the Falklands, and a Wal-Mart in Jackson, Mississippi! He lost a leg in a car accident in 1986. He rolled over three times and wound up in a ditch, and that was just walking to the car! He's been sober ever since, and since he only has one leg, he's been working at a brewery making hops!

I grew up in a good Christian home, I love freedom, the United States of America, Miss September and making boobs out of Playdough! I do political social commentaries on radio stations throughout America, and on this very web page! I started on a station in Tampa Bay and have been adding more stations every year! People ask me two questions. Number one, why are you called "The Cable Guy" and number two, how many licks does it take to get to the Tootisie roll center? Number one, I'm called Larry The Cable Guy cause my name's Larry and I used to install cable. Number two, forty five, unless your Rosie O'Donnell, then you just eat the stick all in one crunch. I ran for president in '92, '96, and am currently running again. I also ran for state senate in Florida, but ran outa money at a strip club in Daytona Beach! I'm the only candidate that tells it like it is! I feel that if you don't address the problems with true talk, then nothing will ever get solved. Nowadays the candidates talk the talk, but when it comes to walkin the walk, they trip and stumble like Ray Charles in a pumpkin patch!

I don't believe in solving problems by throwin money at them. I think political correct people are not solving problems but part of the problem and creating more! I believe I just pooped my pants! I believe in less government and more state control! I believe people should take personal responsibility. I believe all the telletubbies is queer, not just the purple one! I believe in the right to bear arms! Not only against scumbag criminals, but also against a tyrannical government! I believe my speling sucks! I believe Mary-Ann was a better piece of ass than Ginger! I believe that we are gradually losing personal freedoms and that if this trend continues, we will be living in a world of corporate socialism! I believe in a strong military, the Dukes Of Hazzards, and that chicken fried steak and gravy taste better than a cheerleader on game day! (I apologize) I believe the media stirs the fires of racism for ratings, and that they have sold there soul and this country out for their own gain! I believe Jesse Jackson, janet reno, Ted Turner, and the New Hollywood squares are all spawned from the devil himself! (Notice Janet Reno doesn't even deserve capital letters) I believe in free speech, especially 900 numbers!

My fellow Americans, remember, the more we become dependent on government as mommy and daddy, the more government has you under their authority just like mommy and daddy! I believe in America, and I believe in the people that live in it, and I believe if you don't like my site, than you're a commie and you need to get your fat ass off it!!

That's my story and my beliefs. I'm not racist, I'm not hateful, and I'm not homophobic! I'm just a concerned commentator wondering what happened to the free America that my forefathers fought and died for! Git-R-Done and GOD BLESS MY FANS AND THIS COUNTRY!!

Marshall Tucker Band: While they might not have been the most commercially successful Southern rock act of the 70s, the Marshall Tucker Band was pivotal in the genre's rise to popularity. While their heyday was short-lived, they distinguished themselves from other Southern rock bands by employing elements of R&B, jazz, and gospel music alongside long instrumentals during tour dates. The Marshall Tucker Band has continued to release music and perform popular concert dates, utilizing an ever-revolving lineup of musicians that includes original keyboardist and vocalist, Doug Gray. The Marshall Tucker Band has plenty of tour dates in 2011, with concert dates that extend well into the end of the year. Fans of the Marshall Tucker Band will find them playing tour dates at various festivals, fairs, and even a cruise, so make sure to check Eventful for concert information.

The Marshall Tucker Band was formed using musicians that had played around Spartanburg, South Carolina for years. The original lineup consisted of lead guitarist and singer Toy Caldwell, Doug Gray, flutist Jerry Eubanks, guitarist George McCorkle, bassist Tommy Caldwell, and drummer Raul Riddle. The band began their recording career with five gold albums: their self-titled debut, A New Life, Where We All Belong, Searchin' for a Rainbow, and Long Hard Ride. Their rise to fame reached its pinnacle in 1977 with the release of Carolina Dreams, which went platinum. About a year after the 1979 release of Running Like the Wind, bassist Tommy Caldwell died as a result of injuries from a car accident and the Marshall Tucker Band briefly disbanded in 1983. Doug Gray would restart the band in 1988 with new members and continue to release albums and perform concert dates for over twenty years.

The Marshall Tucker Band has numerous tour dates in 2011, with the remaining concert dates in May taking place in Southern California. Highlighted concert dates for the rest of the tour include an appearance at the Wichita River Festival on June 4, the Enfield Fourth of July Town Celebration on July 9, and the 37th Annual Milford Oyster Festival on August 20. The Marshall Tucker Band will play a number of concert dates at festivals in September, including Septemberfest in Omaha on the 3rd and Chickenstock Live in Salisbury, Maryland on the 24th. October will bring the Marshall Tucker Band to a number of state fairs, including tour dates at the State Fair of Virginia and the Arkansas State Fair. After taking a break in November, the band will set sail on a number of concert dates on the Rock Legends Cruise. The cruise leaves on December 1 from Fort Lauderdale and will feature other southern rock legends like ZZ Top, George Thorogood and the Destroyers, and Foghat. While that will wrap up tour dates in 2011 for the Marshall Tucker Band, they are sure to have plenty more concert dates at the start of 2012.
