This morning (May 15) on The Bobby Bones Show, Kip Moore helped one radio listener with a dream proposal. Brandon Childers from Moultrie, Ga., called the program last week to ask if Bones could arrange for Moore to sing to Childers’ girlfriend Marisa as part of an elaborate surprise wedding proposal. Within a few hours, Moore was on board and the couple made the seven-hour drive to Nashville. Upon arrival to the studio, Marisa was introduced to Moore, who serenaded her with his hit “Hey Pretty Girl.” Once Moore finished the song, Childers took the microphone and proposed to Marisa. She said yes.

Toby Keith, along with more than a thousand celebrities and supporters, helped The Toby Keith Foundation raise over one million dollars at the recent 10th Annual Toby Keith & Friends Golf Classic. “We’ve been talking about what we are going to do with the OK Kids Korral for a few years now. This year we showed people what we are doing and that made the difference,” said Toby Keith. A silent auction included close to 100 items. The golf tournament also broke attendance records, with more than 240 attendees.
All proceeds from the event went directly to The Toby Keith Foundation’s OK Kids Korral, scheduled to open in October 2013. The OK Kids Korral features 16 guest suites, gourmet kitchen, Route 66 indoor playroom, theater, family resource room and areas for relaxation and congregation.
