Driving Notes

The Official Blog of WNZR's Afternoon Drive



Lights, Camera, Action!

Today on the show we welcomed Dylan Elliott to the crew for the fall semester! He will be “live on the drive” Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday each week.

Lauren Daigle was in the news this past Friday after she released the studio version of her new song “Tremble”. Not to be confused with MOSAIC’s worship song with the same title, Daigle first released a live recording of “Tremble” on August 6th for all streaming services.

This comes about a month before the start of “The Lauren Daigle World Tour” on September 24th in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Daigle will travel the US in cities like Kansas City and Atlanta before concluding her tour in Nashville on November 19th. She will play some of her latest hits including “Tremble”, “Hold On To Me”, the platinum selling “Rescue”, and the 4x platinum “You Say”.

This Saturday, September 4th Riley Clemmons will make her TV debut on Fox & Friends. Riley has quickly become a national sensation and has had a fantastic summer. Riley was recognized as one of People Magazine’s “Artists to watch” and Rolling Stones has featured one of her songs as the pick of the week. Riley will be performing “Godsend”, and this marks the first in-person performance for Fox & Friends since the start of the pandemic. Fox & Friends airs at 6:00 a.m. local time on FOX with Clemmons’ performance slated for 9:50 a.m. 

This fall Riley will make a 23-date tour throughout the U.S. with Grammy nominee Tauren Wells. The Tour kicks off on October 21st and runs through late November. She will start in Grand Rapids, while also making stops in Charlotte, Orlando, Houston, Denver, and Sacramento before wrapping up in Redding, CA. Tickets are available now online at

If I could talk to myself eight years ago
Seeing what I’ve seen knowing what I know
I would tell that quiet kid
There’ll be days ahead
When it doesn’t make sense

Congratulations to Sherrisa of Mount Vernon for correctly guessing this week’s lyrical poetry – Every Step of the Way by Cade Thompson.

Cultivating Character over Charisma and Choosing Words Carefully  

Here are today’s devotionals:

Cultivating Character over Charisma 

1 Peter 3:3-4 (NIV)

“Your beauty should not come from outward adornments, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes.  Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.”

What would happen in your spiritual life if you spent as much time on your soul as you do grooming, exercising, or however else you maintain yourself? Let us be clear, those things are important, to an extent, but they will fade with time. Your spirit, however, will live forever. Your character is a road map to where you have been and where you are going. Let it point you to the throne of God for it will also serve as a guide to those who follow you.

Choose Carefully the Words you Speak 

Proverbs 18:21  (NIV)

“The tongue has the power of life and death,
and those who love it will eat its fruit.”

Have you ever considered how your words affect those who follow you? Your words have the power to destroy their confidence or build them up to be stronger than they are. Those whom you lead look to you for guidance, Love, and emotional support to cope with living in today’s world. Choose your words carefully. The impression you make will greatly impact your followers. People need to know they are loved by some here on earth as well as their heavenly father. Give the gift of encouragement every day.

Do you want some Texas Road House for dinner tomorrow? Maybe you want to play some carnival games and have a chance to win some door prizes and have a chance to give to a great cause??? Well, then Flannel Fest is the event you want to be at tomorrow evening! If you want more information or want to register, click HERE.
