By Gayle Thompson - November 13, 2019 11:04 am EST Share 0 Comments 0 When Ashley McBryde found out she was nominated for New Artist of the Year, the nod was an honor in itself. But to find out she was in the category with her good friend, and fellow female artist, Carly Pearce, made the industry recognition that much more meaningful for her. "We work together," McBryde reflected to ABC Radio. "Carly and I, we like to sing songs together and hang out. I really respect everybody in the category. So for people that you work with closely to celebrate you in a category like that, it's awesome! It feels really good." McBryde and Pearce share the New Artist of the Year category with Cody Johnson, Midland and Morgan Wallen. But while McBryde might feel some butterflies before the winner is announced, one thing she isn't nervous about is taking the stage. The Arkansas native will perform along with Pearce, Kelsea Ballerini, Lindsay Ell, Maddie & Tae and Runaway … [Read more...] about 2019 CMA Awards: Ashley McBryde Is Proud to Share New Artist of the Year Category With Carly Pearce

When the Swedish Academy of Sciences awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry to the three scientists who invented lithium-ion batteries this week, they paid tribute to the role their creation had in the “foundation of a wireless, fossil-fuel-free society.” But while I have nothing against the venerable scientists John B. Goodenough, M. Stanley Whittingham, and Akira Yoshino, the decision raises questions about the Swedish Academy of Sciences’ commitment to environmental protection. Although electric cars - along with electric bicycles and scooters - are very much part of our landscape in 2019, and will play a key role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions, there are plenty of alternatives, including hydrogen cars, biogas and biofuel. The ‘wireless society’ that the Nobel jury celebrates is generating enormous amounts of waste, including plastics, with the exponential spread of disposable devices. Not to mention the CO2 cost of storing and treating the massive … [Read more...] about Do lithium-ion batteries really deserve a Nobel Prize as a foundation of a fuel-free society?
If a picture is worth a thousand words, video of the unbelievably stupid things you see on the road is priceless. But can dash cams actually help you out in a sticky situation? Here’s how to decide whether you should get one, as well as the skinny on dash cams in relation to insurance companies and U.S. law. A dash cam, or dashboard-mounted camera, is a device designed to record everything that happens when you drive. Think of it as a GoPro for your car. Dash cams can cost anywhere from $60 for low-end models to $150 for the cream of the crop. They consist of a single or double lens digital camera that mounts via a suction cup to your window or dashboard, powered through direct 12-volt wiring to your vehicle, batteries, or the cigarette lighter. As soon as you start your car, the camera records video directly to an SD card on a continuous loop, so it sees what you see as a driver. Some record sound, some can record in night vision, and some even have built-in GPS so you know … [Read more...] about Will a Dash Cam Actually Help You After a Car Accident?

By Gayle Thompson - November 13, 2019 09:56 am EST Share 0 Comments 0 It's only been a few weeks since Michael Ray and Carly Pearce tied the knot in an intimate Nashville ceremony, so for Ray not much – and yet everything – has changed. The Florida native knew from his first date with Pearce that he wanted to marry her, so being able to call Pearce his wife is something he was looking forward to for over a year. "It's been awesome," Ray told PopCulture.com. "Not much has really changed. We were already living together. I joked and said, 'The one thing that's really changed is her last name.'

And I definitely felt it. You just naturally go to this next level, which is pretty cool." Pearce chose an unconventional wedding dress, which Ray didn't see until she walked … [Read more...] about Michael Ray Gives an Update on Married Life With Carly Pearce: ‘It’s Been Awesome’ (Exclusive)
