Zach’s Top 5 Favorite Country Covers of Rock Songs [MUSIC]

As a general rule, I'm not usually a fan of remakes. But, there are always exceptions to the rules, right? The other day, I was listening to the Rascal Flatts version of "Life is a Highway" originally by Tom Cochrane, and, I thought what a great cover this is. So, that got me thinking...what other great country covers of rocks songs are

Zach, How is Your Garden Growing? [PHOTOS]

Last month, I asked Big Frog listeners and blog readers for some advice on how to get my garden to grow a little bit better. Like I mentioned in my previous story, this is my first attempt at gardening, and at that time, I didn't want my hard work to wither away. I'm happy to report, three weeks after my original story debuted, my garden is looking very healthy and I'm starting to see a lot of progress.

Today: Eat Your Veggies [VIDEO]

In addition to today being Father's Day--and a Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there--there's another "holiday" we can celebrate today. And, depending on if your dad likes vegetables, you can combine the two holidays. Today is National Eat Your Vegetables Day. In doing research for this holiday, I couldn't find a proper way to celebrate. But, I'm guessing the only way to celebrate is to eat your vegetables today!

Today: Celebrate by Juggling [VIDEO]

We know that Flag Day was a couple of days ago, and Father's Day is tomorrow, but today is a holiday--and I use that term loosely--that you might not have known about. Today is World Juggling Day. I have always wanted to learn how to juggle, but, like my attempt at trying to learn how to play the mandolin, things just didn't work out. I don't have the hand-eye coordination needed to juggle. If you are like me, and you're unable to juggle, but like history and videos, I have compiled some fun facts about juggling and an amazing juggling video. I can at least watch the video and wish I had the skills, right?

A Cat Up To No Good [VIDEO]

Whenever I need a good laugh, I turn to this video. It has everything a cute/funny animal video needs. A cat--check, music--check, a plot twist--check. The dramatic music is what really makes this video so great. The cat is definitely planning something--at least that's what the music leads us to believe. I can't be the only one who loves this video; it have over 4 million views.

Mr. Rogers “Garden of Your Mind” Music Video [VIDEO]

If you have not seen this video by now, I have to tell you it's amazing. PBS Digital Studios has done an amazing job at remixing clips from "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood" and turning it into a catchy song. The song is called "Garden of Your Mind". And, I must say, I love it. I re

Best of Frogfest 2012–Zach’s Weekly Snaps [PHOTOS]

It was another fun and exciting Wild West Frogfest and Rodeo for the history books. Not only did the weather hold off, minus the occasional sprinkle, the bands were amazing, the fans were great and Josh Thompson and Easton Corbin were amazing. I’ve said it over and over, Big Frog 104 fans are the best! They re
