Today marked the first incredibly successful #MeatloafDay. Not only was #MeatloafDay2017 trending for a while on Twitter, but my daughter took the time to call into the show from London and wish her dad a Happy Meatloaf Day! A perfect start to a huge day.

We also heard two outstanding renditions of the National Anthem from our friends Payton Taylor and Jo Smith. Both rising country music stars. Enjoy the music. Remember, stand tall, there's no kneeling on #MeatloafDay.
