It was Blanca² on Tuesday! We were graced by recording artist Blanca formerly of Group 1 Crew, as she stopped by the studios to celebrate the release of her debut album with Jerry & Blanca from the morning show!
The first single off the album is called “Who I Am” so Jerry & Blanca decided to have a little fun getting to know who she is with a little game of “2 Minute Drill.” We went to a local gym, set the timer, and the answers in the heat of the moment had us rolling. Check it out below…
Blanca is also a huge advocate for helping girls discover their true beauty. She recently challenged some other female recording artists like Britt Nicole to spread “positivity” and authenticity with the #RealTrueYouChallenge. She said growing up, she hated her hair, and would ask her mom to put a relaxer in it or go get it straightened. But as she got older she realized that her hair is what made her unique–that it was “the real, true me.” When she learned to embrace it, she felt a whole new sense of confidence from within, as she learned to love who God made her to be.

Lady Antebellum’s Bible
You may have heard about this on the news recently. On their way to the Academy of Country Music Awards in Dallas on Thursday, country music superstars Lady Antebellum’s tour bus caught fire. Fortunately, everyone made it off the bus safely, but it destroyed everything, including many personal items…except for Hillary Scott’s Bible!
As you can see in the picture, the bus was a total loss. She said this experience has deepened her faith. See her Instagram post below:
#repost from @ladyantebellum: I just got this picture from the scene of the fire and HAD to share this. Today, when our bus caught on fire we had quite a few personal belongings in the back (where I was asleep before evacuating the bus) one of them being my Bible. I kid you not, EVERYTHING in the back lounge was destroyed from the flames, except my Bible. The outside cover was burned and messed up but NOT ONE PAGE was missing. Yall, God's Word will always stand. He is FOR YOU, WILL PROTECT YOU, AND HIS LOVE FOR YOU WILL NEVER FADE. My faith is forever deepened because of today. I hope this story deepens yours. -hills

Chris August Live in Studio
Chris August made a stop by our studio to visit, and Jerry got to sit down and talk with him about the next adventure God has for him. He shares some tunes, including a really cool updated version of his hit song “Starry Night” as well as his latest “The Maker.”
One thing Chris is very open and honest about is his struggle with depression–particularly since his skateboarding accident 2 years ago that caused a major brain bleed and other complications. However, God seemed to put him in the right place with the right people, and he shares his story of healing.
There’s lots to discover, so go ahead and download the podcast–and subscribe so you don’t miss out on other upcoming guests!
