BRAD PAISLEY HAS A COW!
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Oct. 15, 2012) This past weekend Brad Paisley sent WYCD-FM Detroit morning show producer and co-host Steve Gunwald on a mission. His goal was to purchase and deliver a cow to an African tribal chief in Kenya. Grunwald made the trip and accomplished the task by presenting a young female calf, “Paisley,” to the Chief of the Masai tribe on behalf of Paisley. The traveling saga began in 2007 when Paisley bet Grunwald that he could not travel to 10 countries in 10 days – Grunwald accepted the wager and took along a life-size Paisley cut out to document his travels with photos. Grunwald has kept in contact with some of the people he met his first trip to Africa and recently received a request to provide the Kenyan tribe a cow – something that would support the whole village for a long time. Grunwald made this known to Paisley and in a recent interview Paisley offered to fund the trip and “The Brad Paisley Cow Project” began!
Grunwald documented his entire journey through up-to-the-minute blog entries, updating fans throughout his travels. The daily blogs can be found the radio station’s website, http://wycd.cbslocal.com/tag/brad-paisley-cow-project/

" We are concerned and feel that they are going to continue and cause problems to say the least for law enforcement." Ryan Dougherty, 21; his sister Lee Grace E. Dougherty, 29; and half-brother Dylan Dougherty Stanley, 26, have been on the lam since Aug. 2 when they shot at a police officer attempting to pull their white Subaru Impreza over for speeding.
