Jason Aldean is the host for this year’s Thanksgiving Weekend Celebration Special on Kickin’ Kountry at 106.9 FM. It will air on Thanksgiving Day from 6-10 a.m.

The show will feature plenty of your favorite artists, who will share their favorite Thanksgiving holiday stories and memories as well as plenty of music. The four-hour special will include songs from Tim Mcgraw, Carrie Underwood, Jake Owen, Dierks Bentley, Garth Brooks and more.

The special kicks off a weekend full of fun on Kickin’ Kountry at 106.9 FM, which include an All-Request Morning Show on Friday from 6-9 am, and another all-request block from 11 am-1 pm with Ben, as Larry Mac will be at Plateau Wireless for the official kickoff of their Toys For Tots drive. That includes not one but two tablets that Plateau Wireless will give away during the remote (and more throughout the day). Be listening for details.

Both Larry Mac and Janie will be ready for The Big Show on Saturday morning as well, including the Gold Classic Hour from 10-11 am.

Ben’s Ice Bucket Challenge includes Larry Mac dousing!!

Well, you had a feeling that Big Ben Catley had something up his sleeve when he took the ALS #IceBucketChallenge … and he certainly did. In more ways than one.

Ben will be donating money to the Texas Chapter of the ALS to help those in the Lone Star State fight Lou Gherig’s Disease. He also is making a donation to the Jimmy V Foundation for Cancer Research as well as the Epilepsy Association of Montana, in honor of Michael Ellis, a friend of Ben’s who lost his battle with the disease last winter.

However, that was not all … after challenging his oldest brother and a few of his former Pioneer Baseball League broadcasters, he then challenged the one and only Larry McNutt. And, as you can see from the video, LarryMac accepted the challenge.

If you’d like to help the charge to Strike Out ALS, visit the Texas Chapter here. The other two charities Ben is donating to:
V Foundation for Cancer Research
Epilepsy Association of Montana

As of August 22, more than $50 million has been raised by the ALS Association.
