Hi everyone, it's Wild Bill I have been in Country Radio for the past 12 years. I've worked up and down the dial all over the country from South Dakota, Vermont, Michigan, Indiana to Minnesota. I've worked mornings on Z-94 back in 2004 and then took a morning show job in Columbus GA in 2005. I worked for Country station WKCN and stayed there for 2 years. I married my lovely wife Marilyn just over the Georgia border. Marilyn is from a little town called Smith Station, Alabama. I also became good friends with Alan Dupriest in Columbus GA while working with him in radio. I did the unthinkable, I left the south and moved to Mankato Minnesota and worked for country station KYSM for 4 years. My daughter Emma Elizabeth was born in Minnesota in 2008 and she is the love of our lives. It sure is nice to be back home in Georgia being close to Family and friends. I look forward to meeting and reconnecting with all of you!
Carrie Underwood's Statements on Gay Marriage

CARRIE UNDERWOOD: In Favor of Gay Marriage
Carrie Underwood has come out in favor of gay marriage. She says it's wrong not to be able to marry someone you love.
Carrie tells the U.K's Independent, "I can't imagine how that must feel I definitely think we should all have the right to love, and love publicly, the people that we want to love."
Carrie, who is a devout Christian, thinks her acceptance of same-sex marriages comes out of her religious beliefs."God wanted us to love others. It's not about setting rules, or [saying] 'everyone has to be like me.' No. We're all different."
If Carrie Underwood was a run of the mill country artist who came out with this statement I would personally disagree with this and probably think it's better for your music career to not come out in support of a hot political and spiritual issue in fear of offending a large segment of those who listen to and enjoy your music.
Carrie Underwood when she got married spoke passionately about her and her husband Mike Fisher's Christian beliefs. She talked about how she read the "Purpose Driven Life", prayed with her husband and had Bible study together. When Carrie says her opinion is based on Christian faith, I have a real problem with that because the very same scripture she studies contradicts her views on gay marriage.
Carrie the next time you and your husband Mike have a Bible study. Here's some scripture worth looking into that contradicts what you claim God approves.
1 Corinthians Chapter 6
Romans Chapter 1
I Timothy Chapter 1
Jude Chapter 7
